Keeping backyard chickens is fun and a great way to provide food for the household. We have been raising chickens for 15 years and love to help new chicken owners get started. This class will address how to decide which kinds of chickens to get, how to keep them healthy, what kind of safe housing to provide, how to limit predation, what to feed them, and when to expect the hens to start laying eggs. Participants will get to see our brooders for young chicks, many different types of coops, the type of fencing we use, and many different varieties of hens and colored eggs.
This class is appropriate for children aged 8 and older.
