Interested in keeping chickens? Not sure where to start? Take our beginner class on chicken keeping!

About this Event

This class is designed for curious folks who are considering getting chickens, as well as for those who already have their own birds. Learn how to raise chicks, care for adult birds, and keep your neighbors happy!

You will receive a handout packet via email and learn by listening to a PowerPoint presentation.

NOTE: This class is geared to the Chicagoland area, including predators and climate.

Jennifer Murtoff of Home to Roost LLC provides compassionate, homespun consulting and emergency care for backyard chickens in the Chicagoland area. A farmer’s granddaughter, Jennifer’s passion for fowl developed as she acquired a number of kinds of birds in south central Pennsylvania. She offers information and resources on chicken care from chick to adult, and, while not a veterinarian, she provides emergency advice and troubleshooting, as well as avian veterinary referrals. Jennifer leads workshops on backyard chickens; does presentations for garden groups, schools, and other interested parties; and assists families with their own flocks. Her clients include Heartland Housing, the Cook County Sheriff’s Department, Sunrise Lake Outdoor Education Center, and the Oscar Mayer Magnet School. She has taught classes for Angelic Organics Learning Center, Chicago Botanic Garden, Garfield Park Conservatory, and Oak Park Conservatory and speaks at urban agriculture events.
