Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!
Event:
Too Cool For School - Adults Only

Birds and the bees and....chickens too!


Remember that biology class that we used to take many moons ago - the ones where we were taught all the important 'stuff' regarding the birds and the bees and possibly chickens too! Yep, that's the one, the one we were more interested in passing 'notes' to each other, than actually participating in the class.

Well, here is a perfect opportunity to play catch up - as an adult - and to learn the basics of keeping chickens and ducks. Animal nutritionist and poultry expert, Kirstie Henning, will be leading the hands-on workshop, Keeping Chickens and Ducks, at the Animal Farm in North Arm. Tickets are only $15 per person and as numbers are limited, and to ensure you don't miss out, ticket purchases online here is the suggested way to go.

Questions and Answers

The Keeping Chickens and Ducks Workshop is officially run by All Animal Therapy. It sounds like an educational and fun way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon and will certainly assist anybody who is considering keeping chickens and/or ducks. This very informative workshop will also be great for people like me (who used to think I was too cool for school) to play catch-up on basic animal husbandry. Bookmark the date and get in early so as not to miss out!
