Many people are keen to keep a few hens for eggs. This course will cover the basics of looking after hens - housing, health, pasture access, feed, social behaviour, legal requirements and sourcing birds.

As well as formal input, we will spend time outside with the hens on the farm. This course is lead by Anna Bassett, an independent livestock advisor specialising in high welfare stock and poultry management. Anna works with farmers and others both in the UK and US.
