Chickens are the most delightful and happy creatures you can care for and we have been keeping them for several years and they are a big part of our family.
My flock currently stands at eight - made up of five different types. Orchard Cottage is also home to two very spoilt rescue Lurchers and three pigeons who have adopted us!
Originally from New Zealand, we live opposite Epsom Common just off the A24 near Epsom Hospital and our chickens have their own Cube and Eglu in a "gated community" at the back of the garden.
My course is designed for anyone who is thinking of keeping chickens for the first time but can be tailored for those who already have their own flock and would like more guidance up to an intermediate level.
Proceeds from our delicious eggs support British Hen Welfare Trust.
