Keeping Chickens – A New Dobies Range
March 20, 2017

We can provide a one-stop-shop solution, supplying everything from housing and bedding to electric fencing, feed and incubators. The only thing we don’t currently supply are the chickens themselves but we’re working on that, so watch this space!

When Is a Nut Not a Nut? When It’s a Tiger Nut!
