Free - Chix in the City, Hens in the Hood
Raising your own backyard hens is a great way of knowing where your family eggs come from and what they are eating. (and what you eat) Master Gardener Candice McLaren's presentation will show you the variety of poultry available both locally and through websites and poultry catalogs. There are so many decisions when one is thinking about getting hens. Do you want large or small birds, white, brown or blue/green eggs, fancy feathered birds, full grown hens or baby chicks, or possibly rescue birds from our local Animal Services or other shelters? Candice will talk about local city codes, types of feed, where to place the coop, predators, and when to expect that first egg! Her presentation will focus on how to start with baby chicks. Youll learn know how to prepare their first home, how to keep the chicks warm, what to feed, and and how to make their transition from a warm house (yours!) to their new chicken coop outside.
