It's a hotel. For Chicken. Yeah? What's so strange about it? I hear the room service is eggscellent!
It's a hotel – but with a major difference. Instead of booking in guests in human form, Cornwall's newest hotel only takes chickens.
The aptly-named Chicken Hotel recently opened for business at Boskenwyn, Helston. The venture was set up to give chicken owners a place to check-in their birds while away from home.
David Roberts, 31, a maths teacher who keeps his own chickens as a hobby, runs the hotel. He said: "With more people looking to escape the rat race and move out in the country with a little bit of land, keeping chickens is becoming more and more popular. "Producing your own eggs is better for the environment and better for the animals and people, you know exactly what's gone into your eggs.
"But what do you do if you go away on holiday? "Who would look after your chickens?"
