"Get Clucking" was a fun and informative session. Emily and Jess kept participants highly engaged and were clearly passionate about the topic. Wouldn't we all love our job as much as Jess clearly does. The use of "barn-cam" at Burwood RSPCA allowed us to view everything from varieties of chickens to nesting boxes to creating ideal playgrounds for pet chickens. We can all try and replicate the "treats" that Jess created for her "girls". The focus on ways to keep chickens healthy and happy was a constant theme throughout the presentation. Thanks ladies.
