chickens! should i get some?

Posted: 17/11/2013 at 11:24

I am trying to convince my wife to get some chickens.I am thinking of getting a second hand coup with about 4 chickens.but how much time do I dedicate to them,as I have two young children and a puppy now.

Are they cheap to feed? How many eggs do they lay as we eat around 20 eggs a week?

I have heard they go off the lay in winter. Is there anything else I need to know?

Any advice will be much appreciated.

Would a Virginia creeper,climbing hydrangea,clematis and a climbing rose look good?

Which ones have autumnal flowers or leaves?

Great. Thanks for your advice.

Hi hope you can help me. When is it best to move a lilac tree,is it in the depths of winter,now or in autumn when the leaves have dropped?

It hasn't grown too well where it is as I think there has been too much competition from a hebe.

Is partial shade ok?

Thanks
