About the Event

CHICKEN KEEPING 102

Advanced Chicken Keeping

If you already have a flock of chickens and you are wanting to learn more about your chickens, how to care for them and how to grow your flock, then this is the class for you.

In this class students will learn more advanced information about caring for their birds. You will learn all about Incubators, Broody Hens, Hatching Eggs, Integrating new birds into your flock, dealing with the pecking order, BioSecurity (one of the most important things for your flock), Holistic Health Management of your flock, how to create a home veterinary kit and more.

Each student will receive a packet of materials personally curated by Iris to take home with you. Each student will also receive their very own copy of “Fresh eggs Daily” by Lisa Steele. Lisa is the “Go-To” chicken guru for natural chicken keepers and this book is an invaluable asset in your toolbox. We will have the opportunity to look at real live chickens as well as chicks and take a look at essential items for a chicken keepers collection.

Each student should bring a notepad and pen or pencil. Class will be approximately 2 hours with a 30 minute question and answer session at the end. Please RSVP in advance and purchase your tickets no later than March 20th.

We look forward to sharing chickens with you!
