This is What Happening in UK Now....
NEARLY 700,000 Brits now keep chickens - a rise of 80 per cent in three years, figures reveal.
The largest increase in poultry-rearing since World War 2 has come as households try to cut grocery bills by producing their own eggs.
"Over the past few years more Brits have started growing their own fruit and veg - and the next step seems to be having their own eggs."
Tesco said sales of poultry pens had nearly doubled since 2008. They sell chicken coops in the Tesco Direct catalogue.
