Jason's next chicken keeping courses are scheduled for Friday 28th September to coincide with British Hen Welfare Day. For the morning session we aim to discuss chicken keeping, learn about the pleasures and perils of keeping hens in your garden, their suitability as pets and the joys of having your own fresh free-range eggs. The afternoon session is both a practical and theory session. The more you handle your chickens the more friendly they become. Some people plan to spend a lot of time with their hens and others simply like to know how to handle them should it become necessary.

One of our poly hive customers has sent this photo of their painted and decorated honey factory! And how lovely it looks too 🐝🐝🌺🌼🌷🌷🌼🌺🐝🐝

Polystyrene provides a lightweight, cheap and durable hive with excellent insulation properties to help keep the bees warm through the winter. The brood and supers have dovetailed joints for easy assembly and do not require runners as they are built into the mould.

Thinking of trying a new chicken feed? This month we have Smallholder Layers Crumble on offer at Β£10 per 20kg sack. This is a great natural feed, providing a complete, nutritionally balanced diet and its unique crumble consistency takes longer to eat without causing selective feeding. Non GM and Soya free. http://ow.ly/5yME30jknPr
