Chicken Keeping Magazine Articles


Jason wrote regular articles for the Poultry section of Home Farmer Magazine, a great magazine that celebrated the home-grown & home-made lifestyle. His first article discussed how to give your hens a general health MOT. Following articles cover each topic in much more detail, from how to care for your hens in winter, to a cockerel guide, treating poultry for red spider mite, and everything in-between.

Home Farmer is a joyous, information-packed, multi-platform magazine that celebrated the home-grown and home-made lifestyle covering what you need to know to grow your own vegetables, keep a few poultry in the back garden and plenty of tasty recipes for using up the produce and making the most of seasonal food. They covered loads of DIY and crafty bits too! They are a proudly independent magazine run by Ruth and Paul from our converted garage/home office. It is a polished magazine, well designed and printed on high quality paper. The often specially commissioned contents are written with passion and integrity whilst retaining the intimate "over the garden fence" feel which doesn’t preach - in fact they often take the mickey and dare to be different giving us a readership that is both loyal and passionate and a magazine that is lively, human and much loved. Home Farmer describe themselves very much as a magazine for the kitchen table rather than the than coffee table, and each issue targets what you need to know to get the job done with simple step-by-step instructions, features and honest accounts of people trying to live their dreams either in the country or town.
