Between spring and autumn I run friendly 3 hour chicken keeping courses aimed at complete beginners, novices and the curious! This is my seventh year and its great to meet like minded people who are keen to sample the delights of hen keeping, not to mention the promise of freshly laid eggs. I run these courses in conjunction with Omlet, who manufacture amazing plastic chicken housing, and you will see the Omlet Cube and Classic Eglu in use in a normal suburban garden. For available courses and to book your place, just visit this link https://www.omlet.co.uk/courses/host/68687
I am currently working on an intermediate level course for established chicken keepers who may want to branch into incubating or keeping other species of poultry. This will also cover illnesses and husbandry in more depth. Details of this course will be available on the link above in 2018.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding the courses. We welcome aspiring chicken keepers from all walks of life; we have had people here for employee training, school and community projects, as well as the private pet owner, some as far away as France! Our courses are informal with plenty of opportunity for questions, and for £25.00, you will get refreshments, including home made cake and information sheets. Children from 7 years upwards are welcome to book a place.
Look forward to meeting you!
