Sue Clarke, who currently lives on a farm close to Levin says:

Growing up in rural Yorkshire, I started keeping poultry at the age of 12 and built up a flock of motley bantams, some Anconas, a Silkie and a pair of Sebright bantams. At the age of 14 I went 'commercial' and bought 50 Rhode Island Red x Light Sussex pullet chicks to rear for eggs, and 12 cockerels to fatten for Christmas.

... my main passion these days is helping people new to poultry to understand how chickens work, and helping to solve their poultry problems.

Sue currently writes a monthly column in the New Zealand Lifestyle Block magazine - of which Nadene Hall is the editor.
