Gabby Millgate on Chickens in Early Years settings


Gabby Millgate utters the iconic line “You’re terrible Muriel” in the film Muriel’s wedding, is now a Nature Pedagogy Leader at Woden Valley Child Care Centre, Canberra, working with young children.

In this interview, Gabby explains how to set up ready for chickens, the best type of chickens to get, how to feed them and, of course, all the benefits for children – even ones who may be nervous around chickens at first.

She has just released her book about chickens in Early Years settings – called the Book, Book Book.

You can buy the Book, Book, Book here.
