Event description
Learn how to care for your chickens in the summer!

About this event

Heat and humidity can be challenging for cold-hardy chicken breeds. How do chickens cool themselves naturally? Do you know the signs of heat stroke? What can you do to help an overheated bird? Find out how to care for your hens during the dog days of summer.

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.
