Doonbank Cottage experiences

The wonderful world of keeping chickens

Our wonderful world of keeping chickens experience has been designed for people who quite fancy keeping chickens, or who just want to find out more about them. It could also make a great birthday or Christmas present!

The experience will last for about 2 hours and delegates are encouraged to ask questions; discuss areas of interest and get interactive with the chickens and their environment!

As well as teaching you some key phrases in chicken language :) and providing some refreshments and an opportunity to play with the chickens, we'll also explore with you five key areas:

  • Are chickens for me / us?
  • What to make / buy
  • Choosing and buying chickens
  • Looking after my chickens
  • Getting more information
