We started as a hobby and became involved in rescuing ex-commercial hens. In addition, we now sell chickens and Coops. With an ethos of caring for our chickens to give them an environment in which they thrive before going on with their new families! In addition, we developed Animal Shacks Chicken Hotel. Our customers have absolute peace-of-mind knowing that their hens are in a safe and caring, family environment. By popular demand, we've expanded our care to include small animals too. We have a growing, diverse number of pets here, which include RABBITS, GUINEA PIGS, DUCKS, TORTOISES, HAMSTERS, DAGUS, GERBILS AND OF COURSE HENS.
