Services


 Consulting

We are available, as time allows, as a consultant to help you get your laws passed or revised. We are not lawyers. However, we have researched the topic far and wide and have put together quite few successful ordinances. (Twelve so far) We have a lot of research available for you at no cost. The more cases we work on the better the process becomes and the faster it happens. For us, this is one way we give back to the communities that we live, work and play in. Yes, if you can afford it we will accept small donations since printing, postage and gasoline costs are always rising but it is not mandatory.

Nursing Homes

We visit nursing homes; some on a regular basis. Patients come out of their shells and the chicken takes them back to a better time in their lives. Contact us if you are interested in one of our docile birds visiting your facility. Make arrangements well ahead as our bookings fill up fast.

Education

We visit schools, scout groups and whoever else may be interested in chickens. Sustainability fairs, science fairs and general educational events are always on our schedule. Let us know what you have in mind. Act early! There are only so many weekends in a year and the birds need to rest some times. Our available time slots fill quickly.

Chicken husbandry classes

In all the communities that we have had ordinances passed in our favor we have had included the mandatory need for at least one person per family to attend a certified class. We provide these classes at a modest cost to you. Since the advent of the Corona Virus, we now have the ability to teach the classes ON-LINE! Contact us for more information about this. Classes are limited and are only held a few times a year. Contact us ASAP for information.

Healthy chicken classes

We also provide occasional chicken health classes usually conducted by a registered veterinarian. We usually ask a small donation for these classes as veterinarians don't come cheap. We have one of the younger ones in the area available. She is a very good speaker and she is also a very good listener.

Support

Our pilot program initially had 24 families. Our pilot was converted to an ordinance after two years. We meet several times a year to share our concerns and support each other. We occasionally have programs aimed at the back-yard chicken owner and it may often be helpful to others in your community. Networking is very important these days and we promote conversations between chicken owners. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us. Visitors are always welcome to our meetings. Contact us for more information.

LOOKING FOR A CLASS?

Due to the Corona Virus situation our classes were postponed. We now have the ability to teach them on line and, possibly at a more convenient time for you. Our next class on becoming a Certified Therapy Chicken Handler is scheduled for June 23, 2020 from 7-9 PM EDT ONLINE! This is NOT for beginners! You must already own at least one chicken that you feel might make a good therapy hen. If you are not sure, call us or email and discuss it. Here you will get to know about therapy chickens and how to create a therapy chicken program. Our teacher will be Gwenne Baile who is a nationally known hen handler and speaker on the subject. Price is $35 per person. Registration ends June 20, 2020. If you have questions, please call or ask. Classes are filling up.
