Students on this course look after the livestock, poultry and small animals in the college animal care units. Students are responsible for the feeding, watering and mucking-out of all the animals.
The small animal care unit houses guinea pigs, rabbits, gerbils, cockatiels, budgies and more. In the poultry unit, students look after a range of rare breed chickens, some of which we have hatched and reared at Petty Pool. The eggs that our chickens produce are used in Independent Living sessions. We also have a goat farm, where the animals are bred from birth each year and sold at market. Our most recent additions to the farm are two thoroughbred miniature Shetland ponies.
