Chickens

Nestled in the garden, down in Oaklea and Gorsedean field, are our happy flock of chickens, kept in order by our cockerel, Sir Lancelot. Those who take part in the Chicken workshop are part of the daily team who collect eggs, give water and food, as well as clean the coup and lay a fresh bed of straw.  Being outside, working with the animals, gives the opportunity to develop animal husbandry skills as well as the joy of getting to know the quick  footed chickens in their daily activities.

The wider community is given the eggs, and all are invited to see and join us in our daily work.
