|Coronavirus: Lockdown rush for hens prompts supply concern
Angela Humphries always wanted to raise chickens. When the lockdown began she felt this was the right time to go for it.
She's not the only one.
Raising chickens has become so popular during the lockdown that there are now waiting lists for hens and chicken coops.
Some chicken suppliers worry they won't be able to meet demand over the next few months.
Over at Pencwarre Poultry, near Cardigan, there was a massive rush for laying hens just ahead of the lockdown.
"It was nothing to see 10 cars in the yard at the same time when there was talk of a lockdown,"
said Lisa Thomas at the farm.
"I was here by myself, pregnant, and holding the chicken. It was like Tesco, with me saying, 'Who's next?!"
The farm not only sold out of "point of lay" hens but ducks and guinea fowl too.
"There'll be a definite shortage. We have sold all our ducks and guinea fowl because of this," Lisa added.
"People are willing to take anything to get eggs at the moment. For three weeks, I was rushed off my feet."
