No bell bottom blues for these birds… Eggs-hausted chickens in Kent have a new place to flock when they need a holiday – a luxury re-tweet called Fowlty Towers. The hotel for chickens is the brainchild of Julie Smith. She started the business after she recognised a need for a chicken hotel in her local community. People would often ask her to look after their hens went they went on holiday, so she decided to open a hen hotel. It’s for hen parties only however, cockerels are banned for fear of fowl play.
