Event description

Description

Interested in raising backyard chickens or ducks? Come to this workshop to learn what you need to know to get started. We will cover all of the basics, including differences between breeds, habitat and feed requirements, coop design, predator protection and seasonal concerns. Find out what makes chickens happy.

The workshop will cover many insider tips learned through years of trial and error. Learn from our experiences and see a small scale flock in action. This workshop is suitable for beginners as we will cover the foundations of chicken keeping, however past workshops have also proven useful to experienced owners. If you have compared farm fresh eggs to the ones sold in the grocery store, you can understand the appeal of a backyard flock. As a nutritious and affordable protein source, eggs are an important ingredient in gaining self sufficiency. And even if you don’t want chickens of your own, you’ll gain a better appreciation for the local farmers who produce eggs.
