Our beginners course gives you a perfect opportunity to see how chicken keeping fits into daily life and will hopefully encourage you to get your first chickens! If you’re still unsure about taking the plunge, have a look at the Hen Project which gives you the experience of chicken keeping, but without the long term commitment.
While you're with us we'll aim to cover:
- Introduction to chicken keeping & your current situation
- Feeling comfortable with chickens
- Where to keep them
- Settling new chickens in
- Feeding and watering your chickens
- Daily routine
- Weekly care
- Monthly jobs
- Handling & transporting chickens
- Healthy chickens
- Chickens & other animals

Little Lodge Farm was started in 2010 by Jodie & Nigel as a family run smallholding in Knowle, Solihull. It has always been important to us that our children learn about animals whilst at the same time appreciating where their food comes from. There is no better way to do this than collecting your own eggs, enjoying your own bacon sandwich and picking some home grown veg. It really does give you a different perspective on food!
Since the creation of Little Lodge Farm we have developed our chicken courses to cover pretty much anything you need to know about keeping chickens and also offer an excellent chicken boarding service at the farm for those times when you have to be away from home. Through development of our smallholding and the Hen Project, we are also extremely proud to be able to provide individuals and groups with the opportunity to keep chickens for a period of time by renting them off us. Feel free to email with any questions.
At Little Lodge Farm we offer three different chicken courses which are tailored to suit beginners, families or those who perhaps already have chickens. Our courses are very relaxed and there is always ample opportunity to ask your own questions and share your stories whilst enjoying a slice of cake and cup of tea!
After all of courses you will be provided with our Little Lodge Farm course notes and member discounts on other Courses, Chicken Boarding and the Hen Project.
