Chickens 101 & how not to build a chicken coop


Sunday, May 21, 2017 - 3:00pm

This is our last free seminar of the spring. We will cover what you need to know to keep chicks or chickens, including breeds, sources, feed, equipment and more. This seminar will have an emphasis on chicken coop design. We will not try to tell you how to build you coop, but will make some recommendations about size, materials and configuration and suggest certain errors to avoid. The seminar will cover the major types of coops, including traditional hen houses, backyard roost-and-run types, walk-in coops and tractors. We will also discuss fencing options. The information presented will be appropriate for most flocks, but with a strong emphasis on small coops suitable for backyard flocks. The seminar is free, but space is limited. Please email to reserve your place.
