Keeping Hens with Michael Kelly (August)

Saturday, August 22nd, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Imagine the joy of collecting your own eggs from the straw of your very own hen coop? 

Most back gardens can support a couple of laying hens to give you fresh, delicious and nutritious home-reared eggs.  GIY’s Michael Kelly has been keeping a flock of hens in his garden in Dunmore for nearly 15 years, and his 12-year old son now sells the eggs in an honesty box at their gate!  Join Michael at GROW HQ for a morning to talk through the basics of keeping hens and meet celebrity hens Thelma & Louise from Episode 1 of GROW COOK EAT!  The course will cover:

  • The Basics of Hens
  • Buying Hens – Where to Buy Them, How Much to Pay
  • Hen Breeds
  • Housing Hens – Building or Buying
  • Keeping them Safe
  • Food & Water
  • Keeping Them Healthy

On the day, you will enjoy a delicious, award-winning, home-grown HQ lunch cooked by our award-winning Head Chef JB Dubois.
