"Thank you very much.

For all those out there contemplating the delight of keeping a few chooks.

Appletons is THE place to start. Nothing but friendly and helpful advice from the first phone call until the last egg.

The Ultimate Coop on Wheels seemed a little costly when I saw it on their website but I can promise you it is not. All the little problems that I recall from an A Frame house years ago, have all been designed out. This coop is built like the proverbial Outhouse and will be in service for years to come. It all goes together faster than Lego Bricks and just as easy. Did the whole thing from start to finish in an hour, thereabouts, with various tea breaks to admire my fine work!

Once we had the coop set up the chickens arrived. The box the ladies turned up in was a work of art in itself. Complete with a little drinker and food for their journey. I have been less well looked after by Air New Zealand.

Fionna and Gordon will answer any and all of your questions. Give them a call."
