Chickens in your Backyard Workshop
Sat, May 6, 2017, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
Want to raise chickens? Not sure where to start? Join us as we discuss the ins and outs of raising chickens for eggs in Cincinnati. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll discuss the most important aspects of maintaining a healthy backyard flock and take a walking tour of different backyard coops.
Topics to be covered include: breed selection, the care and keeping of chicks, coop design, egg production, feeding, low-stress flock management, and caring for chickens in the winter.
Chickens can be a wonderful addition to any yard: they’ll reduce insects around the yard, enrich the compost for your garden and keep you entertained with their chicken antics! And of course…supply plenty of fresh eggs!
