Hello. My name is Louise and I started my chicken addiction after looking after a friend's chickens whilst they went on holiday and there it all began. I was very fortunate as I went on a course which was run by a lady who had a huge amount of knowledge and passion and who was willing to share her knowledge. I would like to continue that legacy by helping other people. I really look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the totally addictive world of chickens! More Info & Booking
