This comprehensive, practical course is designed to show that keeping hens and ducks is not only pleasurable but also quite straightforward. All aspects of care, housing and breeding are covered including breed selection for eggs and/or meat, feeding, common ailments and diseases, incubation and rearing chicks, hen keeping and the law.

You'll need to bring wellies and dress for the weather as most of the course takes place outside.

Tutor: Alex Logan

It was a visit to Acton Scott that first inspired Alex to keep hens as a young boy. Now with the experience of keeping his own birds he can advise beginners on the do's and don’ts of poultry keeping.
