After many months of patient vigilance, chicken keepers and other poultry keepers everywhere can breathe a little more easily. Our own chickens have reacted to this news extremely positively, taking the opportunity to scratch around in the grass for bugs and insects, to sunbathe in the shelter away from the wind, and to dig their own dust bowls again before gleefully smothering themselves in dry dirt.

A few places still remain for our #Beekeeping Evening Course this Friday 21st April. An informal evening spent with others interested in beekeeping. A wealth of information from a highly experienced #beekeeper and a chance to see the different equipment available, along with a useful pack of course notes to take away. Light refreshments will be provided, including tea, coffee, water, and a 'honey-themed' cake.

Our Pekins have just come into lay, so its a great time to introduce a few to your garden and enjoy their tasty eggs through the summer. Our Bantam hens are this year's hatch, guaranteed hens, vaccinated and available in several colours.
