Chicken Coops For Those Chooks . . .

Trying to start 2010 afresh? Want to start living that healthier, greener lifestyle, but having troubles keeping up with those New Year Resolutions? (aren't we all . . .)

Well, here's one option.

Believe it or not, keeping chickens is a new up-and-coming craze that is becoming more and more popular with people as time goes on. The total number now keeping their own poultry has doubled since 2008, and is still on the rise. Many homes now have a flock of their own chickens running around their garden. For any animal lover, not only will these make interesting pets, but also aid towards that healthier lifestyle you promised yourself at the turn of the year. You will have an endless supply of fresh eggs that you know will be free range, and it will save you money having to go and buy them everytime you run out - not to mention the amount of fresh air you will gain.

However, looking after them chooks isn't just about letting them run free around your garden. It's also about providing them a good, safe home. Chicken coops are designed to do just that. They offer your hens a dry haven for the night, and a safe place for them to lay those eggs that you want. It also keeps them safe from predators such as foxes. Foxes are clever little critters, and the design of your coop needs to outsmart them. It needs to have taken in every conceivable situation in order to provide your chooks the protection that they need and are relying on you for.

Once you've passed that hurdle, your little chooks will be happy and content, and will be more than willing to provide you with the end result that you desire.

So, why not join the flock? There will never be a dull moment. Just don't tell my cat . . .

20KG Weights Set . . .

They're here, they have arrived.

Despite the new products that have suddenly appeared on our website, I've chosen these 20kg weights to feature on our blog.

Why? I hear you ask . . . because they deserve to. That, and because I have a set sitting right beside me.

How great would it be to achieve your desired body without even leaving the comforts of your own home? How proud would you feel if you attained that perfect six-pack without the need of gym? Well, now you can find out.

These dumbbells are just what you need to start up your own gym at home. By owning a set you can exercise whenever you want, at a time that suits you, not your gym. For those of you who are self-conscious, you don't have to worry about exercising infront of people and fretting over what they think. You can have privacy to push yourself to your own limits without any competition.

Using dumbbell sets are a great form of exercising. They build your resistance and strength, whilst toning and conditioning your body - and boosting your metabolism. What more do you want? It's the perfect way to fight back at those `Christmas Pounds` and put you on the right road to achieving that perfectly toned body.

And my daily working consists of pushing them back and forth everyday . . . phew! Talk about working up a sweat.

A Brand New Year . . .

Welcome to 2010 and the start of a brand new decade . . .

We enter this year with big ideas and visions for the future. 2009 saw huge changes for us in every department, and sadly the loss of numerous members of staff, most recently being the wonderful Alison and our little Beci who has decided to restart her training as a nurse. We also saw some humorous times, including an eventful day out on a long boat for both office and warehouse staff, and a day in the sun trying to put up as many tents as we possibly could (and not forgetting the chance to take the michael out of our Drew at every given opportunity).

The changes also revolved around stock. We waved good bye to many lines, but in return greeted many new quality ones that have proven extremely popular with you, the customer. And it's not finished yet. New lines are constantly being looked at, and during the course of this year you will, no doubt, see them gracing our website . . . or at least hear me blogging about them.

Our horizons are broadening, and it wouldn't have been able to happen without the support from all our wonderful customers out there throughout 2009. We thank you all, and hope that 2010 will be just as eventful and just as prosperous.

2010 will be a year for optimistic success in every way . . . (and not to mention more random blogging by yours truly)
