Spring Chickens: Basics of Urban Chicken Keeping
Raising chickens is not just for farmers!  Terry Golson has many years of experience caring for a small flock of laying hens in her backyard that supply eggs for her family's table. In this slideshow and lecture, Terry will share all the information needed to get started with chickens, including breed selection, housing, feed, and how to keep the hens healthy. Terry will talk about chicken behavior, predators, and daily chores. She will also show how she composts the manure and uses it in her garden.

Instructor Terry Golson has kept a flock of hens in her backyard for almost 20 years. Through her website, Hen Cam, she shares her chickens and knowledge with a worldwide audience. Terry does chicken keeping presentations, and school and nursing home visits with her hens. She's appeared on The Martha Stewart Show, and has been featured in numerous magazine and newspaper articles. Terry is the author of The Farmstead Egg Cookbook, a picture book starring her hens; Tillie Lays an Egg; and a postcard book, Vintage Chicken Photographs.
