We are a friendly group of poultry enthusiasts who want to learn more about poultry keeping and share our experiences with others. Our membership ranges from those who are just thinking about getting their first birds to those with large commercial flocks. Everyone is welcome to join us - and it is FREE!
We aim to:
Promote good poultry husbandry
Raise poultry welfare standards
Offer friendly advice to those who want it
Support each other when things don’t go to plan
Foster good relations between poultry keepers
From time to time we all need to depopulate our flock, what better way to do this than offer them to fellow group members. We have found that the best way to do this rather than just sell them at a fixed price is to auction them off at a group meeting. By auctioning them you get the best possible price for your birds!
Dates and times etc for these auction sales are announced on this site, in the press and elsewhere. (Forum members are informed directly by email). These sales are both friendly and entertaining. They are not huge commercial affairs such as Lambert & Foster may run, but more family gatherings where birds are sold under the hammer. The average sale see around 200 lots offered normally including, utility hens, rare breed single birds, pairs and trios, pullets, ducks, geese and turkeys. They are fun gatherings, even if you have nothing to sell or need to buy anything come and join in the fun and meet fellow members. You may pick useful tips or even make lifelong friends!
Please join as a member so you can be kept informed.
You don't need to live in Maidstone to join, anyone in the Country or World is welcome.
