Christmas Chicken Care

Christmas is almost here, hip hip hooray! But, before we all get too carried away with the mince pies, mulled wine and present wrapping, let’s think about the chickens. It is important to give your hens some eggstra attention over the Winter months to make sure that they are as happy and healthy as can be, so here are our top tips for keeping chickens this Winter:

Check their water regularly in case of freezing. It may be handy to have a spare Glug or drinker that you can swap over if it has frozen solid.

Shut your hens in their Eglu a little earlier in the evening, so that you don’t forget to do so when it’s too dark. They will keep nice and snug inside.

Soggy weather can lead to a muddy area under the run. Covering the area in bark chippings will help to prevent it becoming too muddy, and one of our Eglu Covers will give your hens shelter from the rain.

Freezing temperatures can lead to painful combs and wattles. Ensure they are protected with a good layer of Petroleum Jelly or Comb and Wattle Protector.

And finally, don’t go sharing your Christmas choccies with your chickens, but do treat them to some tasty leftover veggies from the Christmas dinner. They’ll love it!

Winter Eglu

It may be looking pretty unlikely that we’ll get a white Christmas this year, but if you want to turn your garden into a winter wonderland we’ve got just the thing – The Eglu Winter Sticker Set! Adorn your Eglu with snowflake and snowball stickers and it will look like it’s been caught in a Winter shower. Add as many or as few as you like and decorate to yout heart’s content.

The stickers are fade and peel resistant so they will look brilliant throughout the Winter, and when you are ready for a change simply remove them or swap for our flower or butterfly stickers.

This sticker set will turn your Eglu into a Winter Wonderland for chickens!

Psssttt…

We don’t want to interrupt your Christmas celebrations this year, but here’s a bit of advice…make sure you check your inboxes on Boxing Day for an offer that is eggstra special. If you’re thinking about keeping chickens in 2012 you won’t want to miss it! We’ll say no more..

Eglu in the Telegraph

It’s proven, the Eglu is a fantastic choice of Christmas present! Our Number 1 Chicken House was recently spotted in the Daily Telegraph Christmas Gift Guide. The Green Eglu Classic has been featured in the gifts for friends section, alongside a a case for the iPad, a beautiful perfume bottle and a rather swish chess board. But, what do they have to say about the Eglu? “Perfect for the urban gardener attempting The Good Life on the back of a postage stamp, this neat hen house was designed for the town garden, novice chicken owner and that egg-stra special eco-savvy individual.”

So go on…treat someone to the gift of keeping chickens this Christmas! You might even get a few eggs in return…

The Eglu features in the highly acclaimed Telegraph Christmas Gift Guide

Results of the Qute Competition

We had a brilliant response to our latest competition to win a Qute. It appears that it really is fast becoming the must-have hamster house this season.

Now, for the results… our lucky winners are Michelle Fuller and Jane Jeffery. Michelle posted a photo of her current hamster cage which is covered in tape to try and stop it falling apart. We couldn’t bear the thought of Lucy the hamster having to live in such a shabby house and we can’t wait to see what she thinks of her swanky new pad!

Our second winner, Jane, is already a big Omlet fan, with one Guinea Pig Eglu and Two Eglu Cubes already. She wanted to the win the Qute for the hamster rehomed by her father, who suffers from Alzeimer’s. Qute is an ideal home for Jack hamster as it gives a great view of what the little chap is up to.

We couldn’t go without mentioning the entry from Iona Powell though. Her inspired poetry has been chosen as our highly commended entry and you can read it by clicking here!
