An Introduction to Backyard Chickens

Class

Class


Curious about raising chickens in your own backyard? This class will provide an overview of the backyard chicken experience, including how to get started, and tips for maintaining a healthy flock.

I'll describe what I've learned after keeping a suburban flock for three years, including rules and regulations (some cities and H.O.A.s have an outright ban on chickens, while others will allow a flock with restrictions - a limited number, only hens, etc.) and the fact that you're likely to need a quarter of an acre (at least) to ensure that you have enough room for your flock. Of course, we'll leave plenty of time for Q&A.
