Would you love to keep hens, but just don't know where to start?

Are you Looking for a Perfect present for a Wedding, Anniversary, Birthday.... ?

We offer chicken-keeping courses with a difference. You choose the venue - your home, a friend's home, or any special place of your choice. For anyone who's kept chickens in the past, or longs to keep them now - this is the course for you!

The courses are given by Jo, accompanied by demonstration hens, if hens are not available. Invite as many friends as you like to reduce the cost per person, or make it a very special present just for two. It's a fun way to spend a day, and you go away with enough information and tips to get off to the best start.

What's more - you get on-going e-mail support on any issues or questions that arise when your hens arrive.

If you organise courses for hotels or other venues, why not include chicken keeping as one of the attractions?  

For day courses held at your home, or a venue of your choice, for up to ten people £300 per day, plus travelling costs.
