“I’m so happy to have Jen as a resource. It’s a relief to be able to call someone when I need advice and support. We had a chicken health issue and I was able to reach her promptly and she even made a house call that night! Crossing through flooded communities to get here, no less. She spent time examining our chickens and showed me exactly how to check our chickens general health. I learned so much even just watching how she handles our birds.” — Rebecca W.
“Delighted to provide a personal recommendation: I am a graduate of [Jennifer's Backyard Chicken Basics] workshop and am glad for having taken it… Good intro to keeping chickens in the city, good way to meet like-minded people, and good resources and take-a-ways. I learned what books to have on my shelf (and have used all of them over the past year) and who to call when the books didn’t help.” –Jean B.
“Thanks again for your help w/ Maisy. She’s doing much better now that she’s got calcium in her. She’s back in with the other hens (has been for a week+ now), and we’re getting 3-4 eggs daily out of the four of them (we waited patiently until she finally gave us one in her private cage before getting her back in w/ the others).” –Michael B.
“Thanks for all of advice & inspiration. You were instrumental in our coop getting started – without you our eggs would just be a dream!” –Lisa Z
“I just wanted to say thank you for the avian vet referral this morning. I went to see Dr. Sakas and he was amazing!!! Affordable and very knowledgeable. I thought she was eggbound, and it turned out she is impacted head to tail with sand!!! She is overeating it for some reason, ovulation suspected. He is keeping her overnight and is going to try fixing her. Fingers crossed!!!” –Danielle
“Thank you so much for your help diagnosing her cause of death. You are so knowledgeable about chicken care and while it is not rocket science it is clear that your experience is of great value to anyone thinking about raising chickens in their backyard.” — Cindy
Thank you so much. I learned a ton while you were here and a very grateful to have you as a resource! — Rebecca
