I run courses on poultry-keeping for both beginners and the more experienced. I have kept chickens in both a smallholding and a back-garden setting in the last forty years. I have a Further Education Teaching Certificate and used to teach in the Community Education Service. Currently, my courses are An Introduction to Chicken Keeping, From Hatch to Despatch and Despatch, Pluck & Dress.

Because of family considerations, I have cut right down on my breeds. I will be hatching very small numbers of those remaining. I have a waiting list, so please do get in touch if you would like to go on it. I still keep Barnevelders and Salmon Faverolles, which are dual-purpose utility birds that lay dark brown and pinkish eggs respectively. I also continue to breed bantam Millefleur Pekins and quail-coloured Barbu d’Anvers.
