"Backyard Poultry - the new big thing!" Louise Donoghue

Keeping your own chickens can be a hugely rewarding pastime, and not just because of delicious fresh eggs they will provide you with.

At Scott Mitchell Associates we can help you to keep your hens healthy and productive. Many of our vets and nurses have their own flocks so we are always glad to see a chicken come through our door.

Karen, one of our Small Animal Receptionists, is an award winning poultry keeper - having won the Champion Soft Feather at Northumberland County show in 2011 - she's a useful source of information for sure.

Anybody wanting to enter this interesting area of hobby farming can talk to us about sourcing birds, equipment and food and we can arrange training in husbandry at any level.
