An Introduction to raising chickens in the city
The basics of raising chicks, coop building needs, egg production, types of breeds, and feed, will all be discussed. For more information, call the co-op at 608-251-0884 or email Alicia. We will be covering the basics of keeping chickens in your own backyard. You will learn the most important considerations in caring for a small flock of hens in a limited space. Topics will include nutrition, housing, behavior, and regulations. We will also discuss the various types of poultry available. Both benefits and drawbacks will be discussed. You will leave the class with a good sense of what is involved in successfully raising chickens.
