Today's exciting new generation of chicken houses mean that anyone with a bit of space - a garden, terrace, or simple backyard - can keep chickens. And the added bonus is that they make great pets. Low-maintenance and easy-going, provided they are regularly fed and watered chickens virtually look after themselves.
No need to take them for a walk, and they come with a lifetime's supply of free eggs.
