"I attended an Advanced Chicken Keeping course today, hosted by Anthony (owner of Cotswold Chickens). It was an extremely informative few hours and highly recommended for beginners, like me, or those who have kept chickens for several years. Anthony certainly knows his stuff and went out of his way to answer fully, the many questions put to him. To top it all, you also come away with a bag of goodies! Thanks again for an enjoyable day."
