Chickens have a range of personality traits which differ wildly, so a flock can prove an interesting mix. This makes them more entertaining pets than you might expect.
Chickens are less inclined to drink dirty water and as a result can become dehydrated, which quickly leads to illness or even death. Change their water daily.
These flowers are poisonous to chickens and should be kept well away from them.
Colourful items will help to stimulate your chickens’ senses. They also love to run, jump and sunbathe, so colourful surroundings with differing levels and sunny spots will go a long way towards keeping them happy.
General advice in cold weather is to avoid heating coops as chickens adapt to cold weather over time and heating a coop means they never get used to the changing temperatures. Ensure they have somewhere enclosed with comfy bedding at night time, and rub petroleum jelly on their wattles and combs to protect from frostbite in very cold weather.
Chickens are surprisingly resilient and can recover well from illness if you catch it early, so contact us if you see anything that concerns you. Be aware of symptoms indicating illness such as:
The first eggs your chicken lays will probably be a little underwhelming. Many are small, with weak shells (or no shell at all) – but this is perfectly normal. They improve with time.
The common life expectancy for pet chickens is 8 to 10, but chickens have been reported to live as long as 20 years. So, a pet chicken is a long commitment you need to be prepared for.
Coops need to have bedding changed once a month and all faeces removed. The coop needs to be thoroughly scrubbed twice a year and rinsed of all cleaning residue.
It’s took me to now to write this review I’m afraid & I do apologise client vets . 4 weeks ago my 2 1/2 year old shih tzu TINY was admitted for 24 hour care due to kidney failure, after 3 days Barbara (the vet) called me while my little girl was being operated on to tell me the prognosis, she was very honest with me and it broke my heart cos I had to let my baby girl go! I didn’t want her to suffer! Barbara is a fantastic vet & very honest, I must also say Janine (nurse) who looked after my Tiny was so lovely & I want to thank you for everything you both did for her! I’m not ready to have another baby shih tzu yet & won’t be for a while but when I am I will definitely be going back to clent vets! These guys are the best ever xxJane Wood, Facebook
AMAZING! Lovely staff & fantastic vets!! Been to many vets with my dogs but literally the best in the area!!!Georgina Taylor, Google
Absolutely brilliant place. Rarely take my cat to the vets unless he is really unwell as from previous experience I have a major distrust of their motives! Have been to Clent vets for the first time today with a poorly boy and it is totally different. Lovely place, we weren’t insured and you don’t feel like they’re playing on your love of your pet to bleed you dry! Would highly recommend.Esther Burgoyne, Google

A great big “Thank You” to everyone at Clent Hills who has taken care of Sebastien over the past 5 days! It’s been a really upsetting time but he seems totally unfazed by the whole experience! Hopefully he won’t be eating any more Night Nurse capsules….Theagh Bytheway, Facebook
