Michael Roberts, the founder of the Gold Cockerel Series of books, was brought up on a mixed farm, and was involved with poultry and small livestock from an early age. He has always had a passion for the country- side and all country matters. In 1976 Michael founded the Domestic Fowl Trust and ran it successfully for 22 years. “Chickens at Home”, the first book in the Gold Cockerel Series, was brought out in 1983, and there are now (June 2009) 26 titles. Michael has written many of the books himself, assisted by his partner Sara who does the illustrating, proof reading and editing; other books have been written by experts in various fields. In 1997 Michael sold the Domestic Fowl Trust and he and Sara moved to Devon in 1998. As well as continuing to produce more Gold Cockerel titles, they run a 15 acre smallholding, which includes some woodland, and keep 7 different pure breeds of poultry, some ducks and a flock of about 20 sheep.
