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.
