CONSULTING in the Portland Area

I remember when  I began preparing for my very first flock of chickens. I had about a million questions, and no sooner than I found one answer – I also found another question. It would have been so nice to have an experienced chicken-keeper come over to my home, sort through (and answer) all the questions I had in my head, and get me started in the right direction.  They say hindsight is 20/20, and that is true. I could have saved a great deal of time and money setting up for my flocks had I known a few things that only experience brings.

So in light of that – I really wanted to provide an affordable service to others just starting out on the backyard chicken journey. The internet is a great research tool, but face-to-face contact is so much better.

If you live within 20 miles of 97216, it’s just a flat fee of $50 for an hour of one-on-one consulting.  Drive time is on me – this is a full hour from the time I arrive at your doorstep. One additional hour is only $35.
