The Wales international has revealed that he and his wife Lacey keep 16 chickens and was given a cockerel for his 24th birthday

Joe Allen has taken footballers on the front of magazines to a whole new level.
The Liverpool midfielder has made the cover of Chicken & Egg magazine.
The 26-year-old has revealed that he, along with his wife Lacey, keep 16 chickens and was even given a cockerel for his 24th birthday.
"Lacey was behind the decision,” Allen said in the magazine.

‘We both have an interest in animal welfare but she came up with the idea to save hens and I agreed it was something that would be great to do.
“We didn’t have any hens growing up but wanted to help chickens after they finished their commercial lives."
