Very instructive and has given our confidence a boost pending the arrival of our ex-bats. Very friendly, lovely food. Recommend you go to one of these excellent courses especially if you've never had experience with chickens. They were well behaved and were happy to be handled, (the chickens that is).
Had a lovely visit. Thank you Julia and Alexander.
Hi just wanted to say a big thanks for today, very welcoming and informative.
Feel very confident now in setting up and keeping my own chickens.
PS Ferg said they where the best egg rolls he has ever tasted.
Many thanks again
Nicola and Fergus
Really enjoyable morning with Julia and Alexander, and of course Buzz, and all the other feathery ones.
Lots of good hands on advice, and we're now feeling much more confident about taking on our girls when they arrive in August.
Delicious home made food and good company.
Thanks you very much. Highly recommended.
Thank you to Julia, Alexander and the chickens, especially Buzz, for a very enjoyable morning. I would highly recommend this course as I learnt a huge amount of very useful and practical information for keeping chickens. It was also the first time that I have ever held a chicken ? thank you Buzz! The lunch was excellent, with delicious egg sandwiches and cakes.
Once again, thank you.
A fabulous morning with Julia, Alexander and their lovely chickens. It was very informative in a lovely, relaxed and social environment. Everything that you need to know to start you off as well as many more handy tips and ideas to make keeping chickens that bit more enjoyable, not to mention the excellent egg sandwiches. Well recommended !! Thanks Julia and Alexander, the Gingernut Rangers, Speckledy, Silkie, Poland, Bluebell and Sussex' for a great time !
Thoroughly enjoyed my morning at Julia's house and meeting her chickens. Very useful with lots of information given by Julia. Lovely lunch provided, the egg sandwiches and cakes were fab! Very worthwhile.
A huge thank you to Julia and her younger son Ethan. I would not hesitate in recommending this course.
Julia is a super host who patiently takes you through everything you need to know about eglus and chicken keeping. Her hens are both funny and friendly. I held Buzz who sat patienly while Julia talked about the anatomy and showed me how to identfy particular ailments that occur for example lice (you can't get that out of a book!). She provides a yummy lunch and sends you on your way with a list of useful instructions, fresh eggs and a gorgous egg cosy.
Once again thank you Julia and Ethan.
A really easy going and informative session. I handled the hens, learned about cleaning, feeding, caring for the "girls". Also about things to do to guard plants in my garden. Saw a cube and eglu in use and had even my daftest questions answered without a hint of laughter. Thank you. I have ordered my eglu!
Julia is an excellent host and presented the course with her son Alexander.
Julia's update on the Eglu, Cube, various run options and new design developments was very helpful. The practical demonstrations of how to put together, open, close & lock, dismantle and clean were brilliant because it is a lot easier than I expected it to be.
The food was wonderful and the party although small was very enjoyable.
The cats were sociable and the grass was very green and weed free!
The best bit though was meeting the chickens, picking them up and holding a warm newly laid egg.
Any doubts that I had about keeping chickens have vanished.
Thanks to Julia, Alexander and guests for a lovely day.
I would highly recommend booking to attend Julia's course
Our thanks to Julia for a fun, friendly and informative course. The main reason for attending was to see a cube in the flesh and now that I have, I will be ordering one as soon as I have finished this review! Julia was able to answer all our questions, I was able to hold a very content Buzz and see a demonstration of cleaning a cube. Julia also gave us tips on chicken care and health and our course ended with sampling the produce in the form of yummy cakes!
