"Chickens in the Olive Grove": get my email newsletter with monthly checklist - and take a look at my free downloadable ebook!

Backyard chicken news, information and tips about care, coops and hatching. Join my newsletter and get a free giveaway e-book. #backyardchickens #chickencare #backyardchickenlove

Looking for high quality, up-to-date, well researched information about how to care for your chickens - straight to your inbox? You're in the right place!

Knowing I'm helping other people (people like you!) by writing articles to share with my backyard chicken-keeping friends across the world is one of my great pleasures in life.

But this website has over two hundred articles, all of them crammed with information about keeping chickens, from incubation right through to caring for older hens and everything in between. I'm constantly updating it with new facts, figures, advice and tips.

And sometimes it's hard for my readers to keep up with what's new.

Signing up for my free email newsletters means you'll never miss out on information again! 

If you have your own chickens and want to provide them with nothing but the best, you need to hear from me!

Why?

Because I love sharing my knowledge of keeping happy, healthy chickens. It's hard-earned knowledge which I've learned through...

  • nine years' experience of incubating, hatching and caring for my own flock
  • taking advice from others with much longer experience than I
  • reading properly researched books and articles
  • attending a course in chicken behaviour and welfare certificated by the University of Edinburgh, Scotland
  • and attending an amazing course in chicken husbandry at His Royal Highness Prince Charles' own backyard coop, Highgrove House!


My newsletter: "Chickens in the Olive Grove".

You'll get...

Every month...

You'll receive a free checklist of things which need doing around the coop during that month. It's not something I give away on the site - it's only available to my newsletter group.

Here's an example of what just one section of one month's looks like.

Every so often ...

If there's something I think would be helpful to you to know about before my next e-mail's due, I will occasionally send out a special message.

But that's the exception rather than the rule.

I know how important your time is, and I know how over-run we can all get with emails coming from all over the place. So I will always be respectful of your time.


Respectful of your data.

I only ask for the information I need to send you my newsletters: your first name and e-mail address. Your information goes to the company which sends out emails for me, "ConvertKit", but no further. It is protected by European General Data Protection law. 

You will be able to access, change or delete your information if you want to, and in every newsletter there's a link you can click to unsubscribe completely.

It goes without saying that I will never, never give your information to anyone else. 


Here's what you won't get.

  • Lots of emails coming into your box every day - I know how irritating that is!
  • 'Hard sell' messages - if I recommend a product, here on my site or in a newsletter - it's because I know, use and love it.
  • Spam. I will never compromise your privacy. Your email address and any other information you choose to give me is as important to me as it is to you. 
  • Let me say this again: I never, never sell or give e-mails or any other information to anyone else. Ever.


Whether or not you choose to subscribe...
