(Southern California based)
With over 20 years experience, Jordanne has taught “unofficially” for most of her life by sharing her enthusiasm for the animals in her care.
Jordanne gained real hands-on experience, learning from trial and error and medical emergencies including minor surgery. She focuses on true HOLISTIC poultry care through all cycles, from hatch to death. With matter-of-fact honesty, Jordanne shares the pros and cons of including chickens in your life and never hides the harsh and difficult truths.
Her passion is in not only the physical care and safety of the birds but also in their emotional and pyscological well-being.
Jordanne’s classes and advice border on spirituality, compassion for all living things, a reverence for life and a love of the natural world and the role we all play in it.

What People Say
Jordanne continually amazes us and others she meets with her immense knowledge of animals. She’s not the type to let on how much she knows but she feels that she should share her knowledge because as she says “I wish someone had done that for me.” I really think she should consider charging for “Citified Animal” consultations because she’s certainly a walking encyclopedia on health, living and behavioral aspects of ducks, chickens, rabbits and now goats.
Jordanne is so experienced and knowledgeable. She’s been raising chickens for many years and she was so kind and generous with sharing everything she has learned. From the very basics of shelter and food to the more complex matters of health care, Jordanne provided us with hands-on wisdom that you can’t learn from a book. I’d definitely recommend that anyone interested in raising chickens attend this class. Jordanne is a valuable resource.
Jordanne Dervaes taught me more about my chickens in a few minutes visiting, than I have learned in my lifetime of raising them. Jordanne is a kindred spirit and our family is blessed in our growing friendship with the Dervaes family.
