A UK man has set up a hotel for chickens to provide five-star service for pampered hens while their owners are away, a report says.
According to orange news, David Roberts, 31, came up with idea for the Chicken Hotel in response to the growing popularity for people to rear their own hens.
Many people thought he was joking at first but he now runs a thriving business on his farm in Helston, and has bookings as far ahead as Christmas, the report said.
During the day the feathered “guests” range freely in the fox-proof grounds before being rounded up and put to bed in their luxury coops at night.
Roberts, who is helped by Ariel Roukaerts, 31, built the accommodation himself. Rates start at £2 per coop per night plus 75p per chicken, including “meals”.
He even transports the birds to and from their homes if the owners require it, and offers a nursery for chicks and an incubation service for eggs that need hatching. - IOL
Every week more than 10 million chickens are being slaughtered in SA alone, and 99% of them are reared on factory farms in the most inhumane horrific conditions. Is that really what God intended? Platters for mankind and hell for other creatures? People are starving because there are simply too many of us. Others get obese from eating too much roast chicken.
It goes on to show how insensitive our societies have become towards millions of starving people, around the globe. The best place for a chicken is in a platter after being roasted; at least that's what God intended when He gave us chickens. Man gives feeds the chicken to make it fat, and the chicken feeds the man to keep him alive...
