Mac & Mac's Pick: The hen hotel

September 26, 2012 Updated Sep 26, 2012 at 9:47 PM CDT

ENGLAND -- Chickens are checking into the “Fowlty Towers” hotel in the South Eastern English county of Kent.

Julie Smith says the idea started when people kept asking her to take care of their chickens when they took a vacation. So she decided to turn the service into a business.

Smith says she only takes care of hens and treats them to fresh vegetables…she even takes them on walks in hen strollers. And she gets the added bonus of gathering eggs.

Oddly enough, this is not the only chicken hotel in England.
