Why More People Are Choosing to Keep Poultry   by Jade Jennison

It has recently become a popular trend to keep poultry as a kind of hobby or a natural source of food. There are many different theories as to why keeping poultry is becoming both a hobby and a life-long investment. It seems as if people are getting in touch with an age gone by. Craft-making and other similar activities have also been on the up-rise.

One of the reasons for this new phenomenon is the simple fact that people are becoming more educated on animal cruelty. Displays of animal cruelty are more prominent and easy accessible across the media and noticeable online. Vegetarianism has been on the rise for the past decade and many of these people aspire to 'save' the animals by keeping chickens in their backyard.

Also, since the ban of battery farming there has been many charities appearing and their soul aim is to re-house these forgotten hens. Amazing figures have been released that state the interest in adopting hens has soared exponentially from 5,000 annual rehoming's in 2005 to up to 60,000.

Upon the petitions to stop animal cruelty, more people have latched onto this craze by purely purchasing free-range eggs. As sales soared for this specific type of eggs, organic eggs then became the next step and now people want them from their own gardens. Many poultry keepers say that there is 'no going back once you have tasted those sunset-coloured yolks'.

Along with this, TV chefs like Jamie Oliver and other various cooking programmes have displayed the benefits of having naturally sourced eggs. This influence from famous and trusted food experts has spurred a revolution against the ready-prepared, commercial products. With this, Tesco have even started selling their own chicken coops as if to show their support.

Despite the obvious inspiration of keeping poultry from the animal cruelty act and similar topics there are also some other reasonable reasons why this is becoming 'fashionable'. With the recession still in our midst many are aiming to save as much money as possible by choosing a more natural way of supplying food for the home. Organic food is a lot more expensive from the supermarket - but not if you are getting it from your own backyard.

Although there are many beneficial reasons why people would want to keep poultry - they also make fantastic pets. With over half a million chicken keepers in the UK there is no denying the fact that they can act similarly to a dog or another household pet. It has also been known that sitting in the garden and watching them cluck away is extremely soothing and relaxing. Maybe this is a good thing for the economy.
