Chicken Boarding

Depending on how many hens you are boarding with us, your hens are housed in either an Omlet Eglu 'Cube', Eglu 'Go Up', or Eglu 'classic' Chicken Coop, or a Green Frog ‘Eco' hen house.

Each hen house has a spacious run, and an exterior fence for added protection. Houses are cleaned regularly, and fresh shavings laid down. All houses are jet washed and sanitised, between each occupation, and are moved to sanitised fresh grass every 2-3 days whilst occupied.

Hens will be fed high quality layers pellets. If your hens are subject to a special diet, please bring a sufficient amount with you to last them for the duration of their stay.

All hens are shut in at night, and released into their own run each morning. We will collect any eggs laid by your chickens, and give them to you upon your return.

Boarding Pricing:-

1-3 hens in a house - £5 per night.
4 hens in a house - £6 per night.
5-6 hens in a house - £8 per night.
7-8 hens in a house - £10 per night.
There is a minimum charge of £25 per hen house.

The charge includes food, water and mite treatment if required.

A non-refundable 50% deposit is required at time of booking. The remaining balance to be paid when you drop off your hens.

No refunds are given for early collection of your hens.

If hens are not collected on time for any reason, normal daily charges will be incurred.

We accept payment by cash or cheque.

Boarding prices subject to change without notice.

I have been taking my hens for their holidays to Marlow Poultry for at least five years . They always look really healthy when I come to collect them. I know they are safe and well looked after . I would highly recommend....
Brilliant service! Rachel and family are lovely and we can relax when on holiday knowing our chickens are in good hands.
