Don’t count your chickens at your allotments

50 chickens on one plot.

But York council has said their rules on keeping chickens on allotments have not changed recently and 50 is too many. Mr Rice said the problems arose after an issue with the welfare of chickens on another allotment at Green Lane two months ago sparked a letter to all plot holders from the council limiting the number of sheds to one and the number of chickens to 12.

If they are producing eggs then how on earth is he using that many up? 50 sounds more like a chicken farm than an allotment.
