Backyard chickens are a great addition to any burgeoning urban homestead:  they’ll eat your food scraps, help nourish your plants, and provide you with fresh eggs and endearing company.  Whether you’re a total chicken novice who’s interested in getting started with a backyard flock or an experienced chicken raiser looking for some troubleshooting tips, you’ll love this workshop!

Topics covered include types of breeds, basic anatomy and life cycle of a chicken, ongoing care (daily routine, feed and water requirements), housing requirements and chicken coop designs, and troubleshooting common challenges.

Suggested donation:  $7

Location: The straw bale building at the Compost Education Centre, 1216 North Park St, Victoria, BC
