Chicken Keeping Course
Keeping chickens in your garden is a wonderful way to add life and movement as well as providing you with wonderful fresh eggs. Here at The Little Lancashire Smallholding we've been keeping chickens for over 20 years so have gained quite a bit of experience looking after our feathered friends. We've kept rare breeds, hybrids, large fowl and bantams, rescue hens and those given to us by people who can no longer look after theirs. We've hatched chicks under broody hens and in the incubator, and even boarded hens whilst their owners were on holiday! Our number have varied over the years between half a dozen and fifty plus, but up to a dozen hens and the occasional cockerel is the norm here.
In past years our chicken keeping workshops were held here on the smallholding giving you hands on experience but until its safe to do that again, workshops will be held online.
Online Chicken Keeping Course - live via zoom - 2 hours.
Topics covered include:
Are chickens for everyone?
Different breeds and their characteristics
Equipment and sundries
Health and behaviour
Where and how to buy your first hens
There will be time for questions and you will also be sent full workshop notes by email immediately after the workshop. In addition, you have my support via email after the workshop, should you require it.
I'm not sponsored by poultry brands, nor do I sell chickens or related items, so am able to give honest, unbiased opinion based on my experience.
