This free range poultry keeping course at Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens led by John Cook gives you a chance to meet our flock and learn how to care for your own poultry

You will be introduced to some of our poultry whilst covering the folowing areas of poultry keeping:

  • Buying your hens – which breeds for you
  • Housing and bedding
  • Feed and water
  • Which breeds to keep
  • Reducing pests and treating common ailments.
  • Protection from predators

Here at Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens the poultry are a vital part of how we manage the garden on a sustainable basis. Not only do the poultry provide us with food, but they are part of our “green” pest control system, provide fertiliser and keep the grass in the car park well trimmed.
