Bev, Matthew and our children, James & Amelia.
started keeping poultry as a hobby in 2004, when our son was born.
After initially buying a few Hybrids for eggs for the kitchen we were
soon hooked and wanted to have a go at breeding.
Of course once we started breeding we wanted to have a go at showing our birds - mainly so that we could get feedback on how we were doing with our breeding so that we could continue to improve our birds.
We started showing our birds in 2009 and since have won many awards at the National Level Championships. We continue to show our birds always striving for perfection in the breeding / show pens.
In 2010, We were featured on Channel 4 - introducing a family to the joys of keeping poultry.
Practical Poultry visited us and wrote a fabulous article on us as a family - January 2011 edition.
Our children, who by this time had their own breeds (Silkies and Polands) have also followed in our success in the show pens, taking National awards themselves.
2010 saw us starting our Poultry Keeping courses (we unfortunately no longer run courses due to other work commitments) - which were a real success. It is something we had wanted to do for a while and it has been a joy meeting new keepers on our courses, some of these attendees have since gone on to show their birds and are also having great success at the highest level.
