Chickens - The essential guide to choosing and keeping happy, healthy hens

Chicken expert Suzie Baldwin has now opened “HOLLYWATER HENS” near Bordon in Hampshire, a smallholding where chickens rule. With over 300 hens roaming around there will certainly be one here to suit you. At Hollywater Hens we have a variety of organically reared hybrid and pure breed chickens for sale as well as quail, geese, turkeys and ducks.

Suzie (formerly of Golden Valley poultry) is a regular columnist for Country Living Magazine and international bestselling author of “Chickens - The essential guide to choosing and keeping happy, healthy, hens”, and recently published “The Smallholders Handbook”. She is also a co-presenter with Countryfile's Jules Hudson in the DVD “The essential guide to keeping chickens”.

Why Hens?

1. A supply of fresh, free-range eggs,
that are yummy - every day.

a sense of care and responsibility in children.
3. Chickens are easy pets to look after
and often pay for themselves.
