 You were living a thriving, holistic, sustainable life in your backyard.

Your family were eating the healthiest eggs possible with the highest welfare standard.

You had an easy daily and monthly routine and you felt confident in the care and health of your chickens.

You knew you were giving your hens their their best life, naturally.

You knew exactly where to go for practical, credible, science backed answers to your chicken questions.

You felt confident in your own ability to observe your chickens' health and behaviour and knew that they were happy and healthy.

You had the knowledge to maintain the health of your flock, as naturally as possible.

You had a chicken house and garden that supported the health of your flock.

...without wondering if you were doing it right or spending hours Googling misleading info!

Here's the Problem

The top four things I’ve found in the majority of my backyard chicken consults...

Unfortunately many new owners are sold birds that are older or not as healthy as described.

Practical, natural-as-possible info from old-school breeders and poultry experts is hard to find.

Sick chickens hide their symptoms when they are stressed or unwell. Poultry diseases are very complex!

Owners don’t know where to go for reliable, expert help when they encounter complex problems.

Hi, I'm Elise McNamara, Expert Chicken Coach

Today, I help people like you avoid parasites and diseases, so that you can enjoy thriving, healthy, happy hens that will lay for years to come.

Chickens have been my love since I was a toddler in gumboots on my family’s dairy farm. I’ve always bred and raised poultry.

I’ve kept both pure breed fowl as show birds; and commercial layers (Isa Brown, Hyline Reds) for organic egg production in a chicken caravan.

But in 2010 I bought birds that introduced respiratory diseases to my flock. I spent thousands on vet bills trying to eradicate the problem.

This began my obsession on how we can use prevention to keep thriving, healthy birds, free of disease. 

This has evolved into my principles of using natural solutions where possible. Commercial management methods such as “All In All Out” don’t apply to pets. 

Prevention through natural nutrition, excellent husbandry and reducing stress is key. 

And now I help poultry owners and farmers like you to do the same.
