"Chickens come to stay while you go away!" Est.2007

Other small animals considered, please contact us.

Why not book your animals in for a holiday of their own?

and go away relaxed, safe in the knowledge that they are being well cared for, totally secure inside our barn, in one of our purpose built holiday pens.  

About our service:

"CHICKEN TRIPPERS"  Mantel Farm's chicken boarding service was first established in 2007, and has quickly grown to include other small animals.  
We consider ourselves to have been the first to offer this chicken service in the UK.

Bringing your animals to board with us means leaving your well loved family pets, or smallholding flock in capable hands.
We have a dedicated area in our barn for our animal boarding, with various sized pens to suit your requirements.
Your chickens or pets will be housed in their own adequately sized pen, which is totally secure from predators, being located within the walls of our main poultry barn.



Animal boarding bookings are charged per animal, per night, as listed below:
For stays longer than 16 nights, or for large amounts of animals please contact us for a quote.  (minimum charge: £25)

Why not grab that break that you've needed so much, safe in the knowledge that your animals will be well cared for?


Update Jan2021:

Following the announcement that Defra has introduced new housing measures to protect poultry and captive birds from the 14 December, combined with the new Covid lockdown we have regrettably decided not to board chickens in the short term.  

We will be keeping a close eye on the situation and plan to again be offering this service as soon as possible.

If you would like to place a booking for future dates please contact us to discuss.  

We apologise for any inconvenience caused but feel this is the best action for the ongoing safety of our customers, chickens, and staff.


We wish to thank all our customers for their continued support during these times

With our best wishes from

 Jason, Kerry, Josh, Fred, Tracy, Dan and Ernie
