One on One Chicken Consult

5


5 per session - Virtual OK

Are you thinking of getting into chickens but don't know where to start? Or do you own chickens but are currently having an issue with them which you could use help solving? Then I may be the one to ask! I'm a long time chicken owner and breeder who at my peak cared for a free-range flock of two hundred and fifty for two and a half years. I know all about coops, predator proofing, rotational pastures, behavior, flock issues, quarantine, bio-security, diet, eggs, incubation, hatching, shipping, raising (in all seasons) general husbandry, breeds, general health issues, breeding, as well as butcher, processing, and cooking. I do *not* know anything about showing but I can answer questions on pretty much every other topic you could think of including clever hacks and fun building projects for feeders, roll-away nest boxes, rotational pastures, DIY incubators, and even how to take good photos of them! Ask away!

Training & Qualifications


I have owned chickens for around ten years. Ran a heritage poultry farm of two hundred and fifty chickens for two and a half years. I am a former breeder who has successfully hatched shipped eggs many many times.

Availability & Preferences


I'm very flexible and am usually free at least sometime during the day or evening.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

As a homesteader I understand that bartering fosters community, initiates socialization, and creates a diverse set of opportunities. Plus it just feels good to use my skills to help someone else.

About Theophanes Avery

Hi! I'm Theo! I'm a delightfully strange personality, or so I am told. Maybe it's the gallows humor, my many creative outbursts, or the fact I never am at a loss of something to talk about. I lead a q...uirky but lovable life exploring all corners of New England for my travel blog Catching Marbles and creating all manners of art. I even Sharpie doodled my car! But sculpting and photography are my favorite art forms and they both give me such a wonderful inner peace. I adore conversing with other artisans, writers, and intellectuals. I spent two and a half years running a heritage poultry farm and talk about chickens until your ears bleed. I am deeply into homesteading, self-sustainable technology, and living the most harmonious life I can. My dream is to build my own self-sustaining tiny home community someday. In the meantime I am an aspiring author with several books in various phases waiting to be published and I continue to perfect my sculpting and photography into a fine art. Oh, and the blogging. I have a whole herd of blogs under my care covering a diverse set of topics: travel, homesteading, life with chronic invisible illness, gender-fuckery, you know, the usual! I don't have any impressive letters after my name but I am passionate about learning, creating, and innovating. I am an intense supporter and believer of science and adore learning about paleontology, biology, and a whole host of other fields. I'm also really into sarcasm. I know, sarcasm isn't a science, or is it? show more
