A wide range
This month we cover a wide range of topics in Poultry.
On page 24 we follow up last month’s features about rearing chicks with some cautionary words from Sarah McKenzie, a poultry provider from Sussex. Sarah’s advice is to be realistic – especially when it comes to the inevitability that half the offspring will be male! The process of hatching can indeed be magical, but best go into it with your eyes wide open.
Our feature from the British Waterfowl Association, on page 7, looks at the keeping of wildfowl, and the conservation challenge that presents.
In Poultry Pen on page 10, we go back to basics and take a close look at the recommended daily, weekly and monthly routines for caring for chickens.
Choosing where to buy poultry can be challenging, and this month, on page 18, we focus on some of the larger providers.
