Introduction to Chicken-keeping

Many people are interested in keeping chickens, but there is a lot of conflicting information. I have been keeping poultry for many years, and can help and advise on housing, breeds, brooding, cockerels, and feeding. Come along to my course to learn how best to keep your garden chooks happy and healthy.

Topics covered include:

  • Fox-proof coops and runs
  • Sourcing your hens
  • The importance of free ranging
  • Feeding and healthy treats
  • Eggs and breeding
  • Cockerels and chicks
  • What to do with chicken manure
  • Pests, diseases, and natural supplements

This course is 2 hours, and costs £30 per person, or £50 for two booking at the same time. Gift vouchers are available if you’d like to give this course as a present.

We will go and look at the hens in my garden, and there will be a handout with all the information we discuss. We will have fresh tea, cafetière coffee, herbal tea, and homemade cake during the break.
