    For those who keep hens, where do you get your supplies?
    So far I have bought most of it online, just wondering if there are places local to me (Berkshire) where I can drive to.

    I usually get mine from a local pet shop as they have pretty good stock & their prices are low (I'm in Norfolk). But for treats such as dried meal worms, etc I usually get them from Amazon or Ebay.

    I get mine from the local farm where I got the hens from - they have a farm shop with a whole big separate room devoted to poultry supplies. I've sometimes got wood shavings and straw from local pet shops, but I wouldn't know where else to get layer's pellets, unless you ask around local farm shops?

    Pets at Home and The Range both have layers pellets according to their websites.

    It’s the sort of thing the Mole Valley shops would do.

    Unfortunately we don't have a mole valley here, the nearest is miles away.
    Thanks though
