Our bantams we love it

What a brilliant idea of Sam Jones to set up a hotel for chickens (New hen hotel is ruffling a few feathers, August 21).

We have 12 bantam chickens and it’s a challenge to find someone to look after them if we are away for any length of time. Our neighbours do a great job usually but the summer holidays can prove tricky when most are away themselves.

We will certainly be booking our chickens in to Sam the next time we are away.

A great idea and it’s a pleasure to support an enterprising local young man. We wish him well.
