A UK man has set up a hotel for chickens to provide five-star service for pampered hens while their owners are away, a report says.

According to orange news, David Roberts, 31, came up with idea for the Chicken Hotel in response to the growing popularity for people to rear their own hens.

Many people thought he was joking at first but he now runs a thriving business on his farm in Helston, and has bookings as far ahead as Christmas, the report said.
