I found the course to be enjoyable and informative. Good tutor, good notes. Provided all the information you need to start chicken keeping
This course shows that for beginners, no matter how much reading and research you do, there's no substitute for getting information and tips from someone who has successfully done what you are trying to do. Not to mention the benefits of seeing and holding different hens, and a lovely cup of tea and delicious cakes. All in all, Lisa got the balance just right- enough information to boost our confidence,but not so much that we felt overwhelmed. Thank you!
lovely couple of hours learning about keeping hens. fun to be on the farm and nicely informative about the different ways of keeping hens. nice to hear about the organic alternatives.
just want to get started ...
My son and i have just spent a very enjoyable (sunny!) morning with Lisa and her chickens!! I found it difficult to find a chicken keeping course that my 7year old son could attend with me but luckily Lisa was more than happy to accommodate him. Being total novices to anything chicken, we left with a good basic understanding to chicken keeping and feel confident now to order our eglu! Lisa has a wealth of knowledge from her years of keeping chickens and also a very comprehensive shopping list from her own trial and error purchases, which she is happy to share. At the end we chatted over a cup of tea and cake and no question was too silly. We left with a print out of the days topics, together with a shopping list and cleaning schedule. A great morning and highly recommended! Thank you Lisa and chooks!
Lisa and her family were welcoming and charming. The instruction was very informative and exactly what I required to give me the confidence to proceed. Her handout file was also extremely helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending the course....in fact have already advised my neighbour.
Excellent course if you are considering chickens for the first time and lots of opportunity to view the Eglu range of hen coops. Lisa is an enthusiast and had lots of information and tips to pass on. We met all her lovely chickens and had the opportunity to hold one. We stayed well over our allocated time talking about chickens and have since ordered our own. Would really recommend this course - very informative.
This was a fun and knowledgable course held in Basil's garden. We had a warm welcome and learnt lots of useful tips. this is an ideal course for a novice.
Lisa was so approachable nad friendly, didn't hard sell Iglu products (as I was dreading), patiently answered all our questions whilst sticking to the curriculum. Lisa has a true love for her chickens and derives great pleasure as well as caring for them responsibly the whole time. A great message to convey to us novices.
Wear a watch - we went over time and it was so interesting we didn't notice!
I had a very enjoyable time on the course with Lisa (despite the torrential rain that day!) and picked up lots of useful information. Her enthusiasm was infectious and I shall definitely be taking the plunge into chicken keeping!
