Introduction to Keeping Poultry



Many people are interested in keeping chickens, but there is a lot of conflicting information.

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
Handling your hens
The importance of free ranging, and avian flu alternatives
Feeding and healthy treats
Eggs and breeding
Cockerels and chicks
What to do with chicken manure
Pests, diseases, and natural supplements
Quick discussion about ducks, quail, and geese

Courses are held at a mutually convenient date and time so do please contact me to discuss.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

Tea, coffee, homemade cake, a handout with all the information, and a box of freshly laid eggs to take home with you.
