    1: Coop/run, anywhere online that you can recommend?
    Looking at something like the following, wanting coop and run in one, raised coop area, easy cleaning tray etc and for a minumum of 4/5 chooks.

    2: What else will I need? Hoping to get battery hens so far I have come up with the following:
    Straw/sawdust
    Treatment for redmite
    Layers mash to be followed by layers pellets.
    Grit
    Water/food vessels
    Lots of love/time/patience....

    Anything you experienced bunch can recommend? or Ive missed off.

    your neighbours are going to love you and all the noise from the chickens

    Thats the only reason I wont get some :-(. I would so love to get some chickens. This year I grew loads and loads of veg for first time and did look into getting some chooks but my neighbours might not appreciate the noise

    Good luck OP with this as am sure it will be fantastic once its all up and running

    No neighbours at the bottom of the garden for about 300 yards (so they are closer to the main road than to us - more or less direct on to it) and where the run is going to be is tucked behind a brick shed/outbuilding and a fence to two sides to stop majority of sound travel, joined onto us are out most of the time, they arent that noisy anyway compared to the Mrs, two kids, two dogs and a cat who spends most of his time in their gardens to hide from one of our dogs!

    Not bad at £130 or best offer, the garden is secure anyway as we have a dog thats an escapoligist - although jumps a 5 foot gate or out of upstairs windows! You wouldnt think she was 11!!

    The chooks will have free run of the garden during the day.
