Skerries GIY – Talk on Keeping Chickens

I was delighted to have been asked by Skerries Grow It Yourself (GIY) to speak to their group recently about keeping backyard chickens. About 25 enthusiasts turned up at Joe May’s on the Harbour Road and I would like to thank them for their attendance. There was a lively discussion after my talk about keeping chickens and I hope that many who attended will now be encouraged to keep these wonderful birds.

A suggestion was made to set up a “Chicken Support Group” to bring chicken keepers together for bulk buying, helping each other out, sharing tips and information, vacation cover for flocks, etc. What a great idea, and I will be very pleased to be part of the group. A similar group has already been successfully established in Donabate/Portrane called Chickenlink.

They were featured recently on RTE television in the video below, which is really great.

I was also very pleased to give those present at my talk samples of duck, hen and bantam eggs and hope that they enjoy them and experience the great taste and quality of a free range egg.

If you think you’ve got the poultry bug, this is a great time of year to get started. And with all the support available in Fingal, there is no excuse! And if you’d like more information on my talks to local groups, please contact me through the site. Contact details are at the top right.
