What you'll do

We'll start with a tour of the setup outside which will involve showing you all the different chicken and bantam breeds I have (as well as a few ducks too!) and the hatchery where lots of the chicks can be seen - too cute not to miss! After the tour, we'll make our way into a cosy, traditional English outbuilding onsite where I'll chat to you about everything you need to know to keep chickens. I'll cover many topics and I will include various demonstrations which will involve handling birds - you don't have to handle the birds if you don't want to though! We'll have a small break midway through the presentation to enjoy homemade cake and refreshments whilst we continue to enjoy the friendly atmosphere. To end, you'll receive a gift to take away with you.
Other things to note
Bring wellington boots for the tour in case it's a bit muddy and a raincoat in case of bad weather. A camera isn't essential but you may want to take some snaps of the chickens!

I started breeding poultry when I was 6 years old, a passion of mine which is now a business. I breed & sell chickens & bantams as pets & as egg layers to people all over the UK, I exhibit at local shows, I've been published in multiple articles & now offer the chicken keeping courses, I absolutely love it! The whole breeding process is so exciting and interesting & I can't wait to show you why!

Although I have been keeping a small number of chickens for a few years, I have made mistakes with my choice of chicken housing and encountered some health issues with my flock. It was great to meet with Claudia and get the opportunity to ask numerous questions, which she fully answered with honesty and a great depth of knowledge. I went away feeling reassured that I'm doing lots of things right, but have a much greater understanding of how to help my 3 chickens go on to have long and healthy lives. It was also lovely to meet 'Fred' the friendly cockerel and go home with a rainbow of delicious eggs
