Insurance for chickens?

We've had our girls (4 ex-batts) for just over a week now and already one of them's cost us £44 in vets' bills shock!

Before we got them I would have thought that insuring them was a daft idea, but now I'm not so sure! Do any of you have pet insurance for your hens, and if so, who do you use? I'm struggling to find a provider on Google.

OMG that could only happen in England.

Try the Agricultural/farming insurance co.s

I really don't think you will find anything. The excess on my dog insurance is £70. It would have to be one big vet bill for a chicken that would be over that.

I do applaud you for being so dedicated to your chicken's welfare but it would only have been £3 to have put it down. Or learn to do it yourself for free.

Thanks, Flopsy, will do.

Stripey, I can honestly say that never even crossed my mind. How soft am I?! Especially as the person who up until a week ago would sneer at "people who are stupid about their animals". blush

I love my chickens. grin
