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.
