A well rounded introduction to caring for poultry. The presenter was passionate and well informed. Images were helpful showing the conditions to look for. The presentation was a little fast for me, the beginner, but I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Very informative talk from people who have an obvious passion and interest in chickens and can appreciate their different personalities. As a backyard chicken owner, I learnt a lot of practical tips and tricks to keep them, healthy and happy. Thanyou.

I don’t even have chickens but my neighbors do and I chicken-sit them when called upon. The course was great! I learnt new things and I feel encouraged to implement some of the enrichment ideas and to build some high perches for them. I’m sure the neighbors won’t mind!
