"I've just bought some backyard chickens. How do I know I'm taking the best care of them?" 

So you've just got started with a small flock of hens, or you are just about to purchase some. 

They may be young pullets or maybe you've given a second chance to some older rescue ladies. 

You want:
  • to get your questions answered by an expert
  • ​an easy-care, step-by-step routine to keep them thriving
  • ​a simple set-up that keeps your hens happy and makes things easy
  • ​to learn modern, natural ways of doing things
  • ​confidence in the care and health of your flock
I've got you!

Chickens don't need fancy, they need functional. Their needs are quite simple. But failing to meet these simple needs will cause problems in the months to come...

    Hi, I'm Elise McNamara, 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.

      When is it?

      11am Saturday 16 January 2021

      How long does the workshop go for?

      The workshop goes for 2 hours + 30 minutes of question and answer time. 

      Will it be recorded? Will there be a recording available?

      No and yes. 
      The session you attend will not be recorded. I find people are more comfortable to engage when they're not being recorded. 
      BUT! There will be a recording available if you are unable to attend or can't stay for the entire session. It's not from the LIVE workshops. It's just of me, it doesn't have back and forth questions and discussion from other workshop participants.

      Do I need to already have backyard chickens to attend the workshop?

      Not at all! The course is beginner friendly, and if you are planning to buy chickens, it will show you exactly what to look out for.

      What if I'm not thrilled?

      I want to make sure you get real value out of this, so I only want your money if you are happy with the workshop! If you aren't satisfied, please send an email to and I will refund you within 7 days of the workshop you attended. 

      Can my family attend or listen in?

      Your household is more than welcome to listen in and learn! But because other people are paying for a small group class, I ask that you try to have one person on your end asking questions to make things easier!

      Do I have to participate, or can I just listen in?

      Completely up to you! If you just want to relax with a cuppa and listen in, there's no pressure to participate.

      Do I have to have my camera on?

      No, again, no pressure or expectations. I want this to be a relaxed class.

      I have another question!
