Chicken Supplies

Hi,

I've just started to keep chickens (3 hens) in the back garden. I live in Dublin 6 and was wondering where the closest suppliers of chicken feed / grit / bedding and other supplies are ?

I'll probably buy in bulk outside of Dublin when I can but in case of emergencies does anyone have any recommendations ?

Thanks

Marty

Looks like there was a place called the corn shop in Bluebell - but it doesn't seem to be in operation anymore.

Any other suggestions from welcome.

Google the CORN STORE.
careful buying in bulk, as most feeds only have a shelf life of 3 months,
bags come in 20/25kg, so that will last a long time for 3 hens!

Marty, The Corn Store in bluebell is still very much in
operation and carrys a good stock of supplies.Or nearer you Bird jungle in Drimnagh D12.But as pointed out dont go buying in bulk for such a small clan ,one sack of mix will last a month+
