325 for a hen house! Outrageous.

Bit of chicken wire, some bits of wood and a hammer & nails, and then you will have a chicken run suitable for any London garden. Beware the foxes, though - the Bermondsey foxhounds aren't meeting yet, and I'm not sure they do call outs.

Rip-off indeed; and i don't know what idiots pay that price but some obviously do. But look at it! It's like an iMac for chickens *grin*

"It is fitted throughout with wooden roosting bars and an integrated nesting box with privacy screen to preserve your chickens modesty when laying an egg."

It sounds eggs-cellent.

Mapmaker, if you were to keep chickens, you'd be able to run that car of yours thus:

Saw these in the paper a couple of weeks ago. Agree with rip-off prices, but (if I had a garden to fit the little darlings) I've got to admit I'd love to have some chickens.

...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.

My grandmother used to have three chickens. They roosted in her outside loo or the coal bunker, depending on their mood.

One of them was called Frosty because she'd given the broody hen an egg from the fridge, and it hatched.

Sadly, the hen died in a dreadful fall from a first floor windowsill. I think she forgot she couldn't fly very well.

My next door neighbour at Stanley Towers has a rooster, Henry, and eight hens. Foxes are a problem,. but she had to put netting over the top of the run to prevent hawks from trying to help themselves. Henry wakes me up, the run is an eye-sore and it gets a bit whiffy in hot weather. That said, if I were there full time, I'd keep chickens too.
