For my smallholding, I prefer a wooden traditional henhouse. Don't want to go into 'which is best', as always arguments for both sides. It's just my preference.

Thanks Marriotts but they are far too dear for me - I'm only a beginner and would need a lot more "free" eggs than I could deal with before I could make that kind of price work out as practical. 

I think the ones around 100-150 would be the most I could justify given I have no income other than what I can make from my various agricultural and other activities, and I'm not sure I can actually justify the cost even then to be honest, given how many eggs one person can actually eat and the regulations now around selling the extras..

Not sure about adding livestock to what I already have with winter coming and no money coming in, will sit on the fence a little longer and see if I'm moving too as that would also change things!

Thanks for all the advice, I'll mull it over before doing anything rash  ;)
