Just beginning to get the hang of this blogging lark.  We have 2 of the cutest little ducklings hatched this week and they are just beginning to get used to their water and where their feed is. We were told that there would be a problem with imprinting on a human if we werent careful.  I wasnt careful, as I wanted a duckie to be wanting to be with me, however the duckie is not imprinted at all.  In fact the duckie is frightened of me and anyone else who goes near the brooder.  So much for the accepted wisdom of others. I am gutted, not even a duck loves me.

Yay Finally created a blog

This is the first posting for Heswall Hills Henporium and is the first of many.  In our blog we will be adding all sorts of up and coming news for you to see.  We hope that if you enjoy what you see, you will want to contribute.

We have just started holding Chicken Keeping Courses and so far we have good feedback from those who have attended.  They are held in Heswall on the Wirral and take you through all aspects of raising chickens for your garden either as pets or as a small cottage industry if you decide you want to keep more than a couple. 

Heswall Hills Henporium breed chickens specifically for the home keeper and for the smallholder although they can cater for larger quantities too if required.
