Courses by The Duck Dabbler
Tanya Olver, a director of Cornish Duck, has been successfully hatching and rearing ducks on a weekly basis since 2006 from her ‘Terras’ duck breeding flocks.
During this time she has built up a wealth of knowledge that is often called upon by other poultry enthusiasts and is now recognised as a reliable and trusted source of information .
Starting Saturday 23rd March 2019 Tanya will be offering to share that knowledge with other poultry keepers by running a course detailing the journey of the egg from being laid through to care of the day old.
**Although the course is designed around ducks it will be equally beneficial to chicken keepers as many of the principals are the same.
This will be a hands on course involving egg collecting, candling and handling ducklings.
No previous experience is necessary and a print out of all the aspects covered will be available to take home at the end.
