About Me

Hi there.. Thank you checking out my profile etc. I am Stuart and do have 4 sexy chickens in my eglu and also Molly (Jack Russell Dog). I live in Kingsway village new housing estate with small garden. I used to live in Yorkshire all my life and had loads chickens, geese, ducks and goats in back garden. Had to give up due to career moves and college until now. I did nag my partner all the time to have chickens in garden he hated it at 1st but now loves it to bit. At work everyone thought i'm going barmy but wait till they tried my eggs and relise it is fantastic egg and demand more. I do have stress full at work manageing 300 staff so when i come home and 1st things i do is treat them with sweetcorns and talk to them. They do talk to you and cuddle me on my lap... Dont be afriad chickens just go for it.....

Perfect! - Sarah,

I really enjoyed the chicken keeping course led by the wonderfully helpful & hospitable Stuart. I'm a complete beginner and I learnt a huge amount during the session - not only do I now understand all the basics of chicken keeping but I also got a massive confidence boost thanks to Stuart and his obliging girls! I can't wait for my chickens to arrive! Thanks Stuart

Absolutely Eggtastic - Sarah,

Had the most wonderful morning taking my little boy to see Stuart and his hens. Stuart was very thorough with all his knowledge of general chicken keeping/housing & feeding etc., His hens had so much character and were very accommodating towards us (One chicken having been disturbed from the nest box decided to lay her egg at my feet!). Thomas my little boy was thrilled to bits with all the goodies he went home with (Bag, pen, badge etc.,) and he couldn't wait to eat the lovely eggs we were given. Lovely coffee and Homemade cherry cake to finish off Mmmm.

Very thorough and relaxed - Jen,

Stuart was excellent at putting us at our ease and tailoring the course to our needs as newbie future hen lovers.He was very thorough in telling us exactly what we needed to know and didn't complicated the issue with any unnecessary blah, blah. His hens were extremely accommodating as well, and we were able to enjoy a nice cuddle with 2 of his girls. The chilled out coffee and cake afterwards was a great way to relax and think of any questions that suddenly occurred to us, and we were made to feel fully welcome to phone for any advice if needed. Thank you, Stuart

I really enjoyed it, Stuart was very welcoming and very knowledgeable. I gained a lot from going on the course. - Celia,

Stuart made us very welcome and was very knowledgable about his chickens and their welfare. I learnt a lot about keeping them well and thriving. It was interesting to see what feathers to trim to prevent them from flying. Also the different feeds etc. It was fantastic to actually hold a chicken for the first time - really enjoyed it. Stuart made us very welcome - lovely coffe and cakes afterwards. Thank you.

Lovely informative Morning - Bye,

Had a really enjoyable Saturday morning, learning all about Chickens. Stuart was really informative and a wonderful advertisement for Omlet. The home made Cherry Cake was delicious, and went down well with a cup of tea. Cannot wait to get my chickens now. I would definately recommend attending to anyone who is thinking about getting some Chickens.
