"CHICKEN TRIPPERS" Poultry Boarding Since 2007
Mantel Farm's chicken boarding service was first established in 2007, we consider ourelves to have been the first to offer this service in the UK.
Bringing your birds to board with us means leaving your well loved family pets, or smallholding flock in the capable hands of those who know about poultry.
We have a dedicated area in our barn for Chicken Trippers, with various sized pens to suit your requirements.
Your chickens will be housed together in their own adequately sized pen, which is totally secure from predators, being located within the walls of our main poultry barn.
Being indoors, our pens are built on a solid concrete floor therefore enabling cleaning and disinfecting much more thorough than if they were kept on grass.
After cleaning, each pen is given a new floor of soft wood shavings providing a deep litter for your hens to enjoy.
Each pen contains its own feeder, drinker, grit hopper, nesting boxes and a roosting rail as standard. Optional extras are available on request and we can cater for specific treat or food requirements but extra cost may be involved.
Any eggs laid by your hens will be collected daily for you to take home when you collect your birds.
Layers pellets or mash will be provided along with a treat feed of corn in the afternoon. (unless you request otherwise)
If you would like to bring along extra treats for your birds, or if they require any special care, please complete the relevant section on our booking form.
We also board Ducks (just book as chickens but please let us know in the comments box that they are actually Ducks so we can reserve our special duck pen!):
Dear Mantel Farm, Thank you for looking after our Ducks Wally, Fred and Pickle, it really is such a comfort to know our boys are so well looked after when we are on holiday. They came back happy, checked out the garden, had a huge splash in the pools and went to sleep! The children think Mantel Farm is their Center Parcs! Without you we wouldn't enjoy our own holiday half as much. With huge thanks..Feb 2014
Chicken Tripper bookings are charged per chicken as follows:
£2.00 per night up to 16 nights (Min £25)
