"How do I know I'm taking the best care of my backyard chickens?"

So you've just got started with a small flock of hens, or you are just about to purchase some.

They may be young pullets or maybe you've given a second chance to some older rescue ladies.

You want:

  • to get your questions answered by an expert
  • an easy-care, step-by-step routine to keep your flock thriving
  • a simple set-up that keeps your hens happy and makes things easy
  • to learn modern, natural ways of doing things
  • confidence in the care and health of your flock 

I've got you!

Chickens don't need fancy, they need functional. 

Their needs are quite simple. But failing to meet these simple needs will cause problems in the months to come...

Hi, I'm chicken expert Elise McNamara

I'm a chicken consultant, writer, author and speaker.

Today, I help people like you avoid chicken parasites and diseases so that you can enjoy thriving, healthy, happy hens that will lay for years to come. 

Chickens have been my love since I was a toddler in gumboots on my family's dairy farm. I've always bred and raised poultry. I've kept pure bred fowl as show birds and commercial layers (Isa Brown and Hy-Line Brown) for organic egg production in a chicken caravan. 

But in 2010 I bought birds that introduced respiratory diseases to my flock. I spent thousands on vet bills trying to eradicate the problem. 

This began my obsession with how we can use prevention to keep thriving, healthy birds, free of disease. 

This has evolved into my approach of using natural solutions where possible. Commercial management methods such as "All In All Out" don't apply to pets. 

Prevention through natural nutrition, excellent husbandry and reducing stress is key. 

And now I help poultry owners and farmers like you to do the same.

Who is this online workshop for?

Beginners and chicken owners who are time poor and want to know the exact recipe for success for healthy, happy productive hens.

What you will learn in this workshop

The shortcuts to success with backyard chickens, naturally. Skipping over all of the hard lessons I've learnt and my expert knowledge learned through some of the best chicken experts in the world.

Chicken keeping should be fun and easy

"I want people to be confident in their own ability to observe their chickens' health and behaviour, and that's what I want for you!" - Elise McNamara, natural chicken care expert and educator
