Description

The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Herds and Harvest program will be hosting a small scale poultry class in Washoe County. Small scale backyard poultry has become quite popular in recent years in Northern Nevada. This class will help poultry owners get off on the right foot and maintain a healthy flock. Learn about getting started, facility requirements, and finding poultry to stock your coop. Get prepared to avoid poultry diseases and learn about the various legal restrictions to follow. Keep your chickens happy by understanding their feeding requirements. Discover what a small poultry operation costs and what you might expect to gain as income if that is consistent with your goals.
