I saw this advertised www.omlet.co.uk/shop/chicken_keeping/shades_and_covers/15626/clear_wind_break_kit_for_chicken_fencing/

Is it just me or has the garden hen business reached a new level of lunacy??

blush it does keep my aviary a lot drier and far less wet and smelly!

pixel Crazy!!! I don't understand some people's attitudes towards chickens. There seem to be a load of mad people on the Omlet site. I like hens and of course, the should be well looked after, but please!!!

Did you watch the video? It's slightly pathetic. All the bloke has done is train the chickens to follow a pot of food held in front of their beaks, and erm... you don't need to train them to do that!
Ok I admit when I was a kid I spent hours teaching my pets to jump over things but that was because I really wanted a pony grin.
