I hedgerow bury mine, I have a friend with some land and I tuck them into the base of the hedge and let nature do the rest, my gardens a bit small for burials and I didn't fancy putting them in the bin!

We double bag and wheelie bin them as well. Although we tell the children that we bury them in the old pet cemetery that is in the wood by our garden. smile

We bury ours (people of the future will think we were a pet cemetry!) We wrap in newspaper and bury deep. No problems with foxes digging them up but we don't have a huge problem with foxes anyway.

really sorry but I have to say I double bag and wheelie bin, that sounds so horrid

Sounds grim but - we wrapped the body up well in plastic big liners then put it in the wheelie bin. Didn't feel good about doing this but I've heard that if you bury the body there is a good chance it will attract foxes to your garden, who will then dig up the dead hen and probably take an interest in the remaining one.

Hi all. We have four ex bat hens, have had them for just over a year now and they are no trouble. I've never had chickens before and was wondering....what do you do with their bodies when they die? I've lost dogs before and had them cremated, and little animals like the Guinea pig were buried in the back garden. But chickens are kind of in between so was just curious...
