A Wonderful Day at Green Meadow

I've just returned from a fascinating day learning all about chickens on a Hatch to Despatch Course at Greenmeadow Poultry.

The other attendees were my thirteen year old daughter, who absolutely loved her day, and an old friend (and ex-colleague) who is also looking to breed chickens, and who has come away both more committed and informed than before. Our (family) motivation was also that, should it ever be required, we wanted to be able to despatch our own chickens quickly with the least distress possible (we have a very small flock of 5 bantams, who provide us with lovely eggs). However, we also wanted to understand the whole process (as the title of the course implies).

We felt immediately welcomed on arrival as Cheryl talked through our priorities for the day, whilst we also had a very welcome coffee, thanks to Arvo. Cheryl clearly knows her stuff, and also had the knack of explaining things to us clearly, showing us exactly what to do, and of course coping with our ineptitude.

We all came away having seen first hand the practicalities of incubation, hatching, and keeping chickens, and having the confidence to know that we can despatch should it be required. However, it was not just what we learned that made this a wonderful day, but the open and friendly way that the knowledge was imparted. This course is absolutely brilliant, great value, and if you thinking about or are new to chickens well worth it. Highly recommended.
