Join us for an intro class on backyard chicken keeping. We'll talk chicken facts, things to think about when starting and growing a flock, breeds we like (and don't), how to keep peace with your non-chicken keeping neighbors and the general pros and cons of co-existing with feathered friends. We'll discuss coops and runs and what it means to free-range when you have predators in your neighborhood. We'll even geek out a little about the perfection of the egg and leave you with at least one great recipe reccomendation. This is a hands-on class suitable for all ages.
Cost: $ 15, 13 plus (kids free with adult) pre-register 401 274 1160 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Drake Patten and Wright Deter own Hurricane Hill Farm. Together, they try to manage a mixed flock of 70-80 birds, roosters included. Once, they had only nine hens and life, they often recall, was pretty easy.
