Backyard Chicken Keeping Class!
For anyone who might be interested, I am teaching several classes at the Troy Hayner Cultural Center, this summer. One of the classes I will be teaching is a class on backyard chicken keeping, so if you are thinking about adding chickens to your life, this is the perfect class for you! Come join us and learn all you need to know to get started in the world of chicken keeping.
This is a two part class where you will learn all you need to know about raising chickens for your backyard homestead. When you finish this class you will have a complete understanding of chicken keeping from birth to breakfast.
In the first class we will go over housing, feeding, and care of chickens. In the second class we will discuss the different breeds of chickens, health problems that affect the chicken, and I will answer any additional questions that you may have before sending you out the door with your new chicks!
That's right, upon completion of this class each participant is welcome to take home 4 chicks to start their own backyard flock. (More chicks may be available for purchase as well...)
The first part of the class will be on June 8th from 10-12:30 pm and the second part of the class will be June 22nd from 10-12:30 pm. Pay attention to their website to find out when their summer class schedule will be released so you can sign up! http://www.troyhayner.org/index.html
