This was such an information packed and entertaining learning experience, whether you are thinking about introducing chooks to your home or just love them, I would highly recommend this educational virtual class!

We loved the 'Get Clucking' session! We don't have chickens now, however due to the session we are seriously contemplating getting 3 chickens of our own. We now know how to care for them and that will ensure we treat them well. We learnt things we never knew before and if it wasn't for the RSPCA session I'm not sure we would have ever thought of having chickens as pets.

Probably too many in class size for amount of distractions from questions before end of class/content in notes.
