Have you ever wanted to keep a few chickens in your back yard but were just too intimidated by taking on the responsibility? Maybe you have one too many questions about the process and feel unprepared. This class aims to provide interested parties with the knowledge they’ll need to start their own backyard flock. Topics such as the basics about chickens, coop preparation, food, supplements/treats, choosing the right bird, health issues and more will be covered in this two hour course led by your local farmer. So don’t sit on the sideline any longer. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn about keeping chickens and start producing your own fresh eggs daily. Participants can look forward to spending a few hours at a local urban farm, getting hands on experience with birds and tours of the coop and will each walk away with a couple of farm fresh eggs to try at home for themselves plus a number of different resources on books, documentaries, and chicken sourcing farms.
