Raising Chickens




The Raising Chickens class will cover brooding, housing, nutrition needs, and other vital information for hens and meat birds.

Who Should Take This Class? Anyone interested in learning about hens or meat chickens for personal food (eggs or meat) and/or selling to the public on a small scale.

When Does It Meet? SEPTEMBER 17, 8AM-12NOON

What is Covered? Purchasing Chicks/Chickens, Brooding, Housing Needs, Feed Requirements, Equipment Needed

What is NOT Covered? This does not cover chicken processing. If you are interested in raising chickens for meat we STRONGLY recommend you also take our Chicken Processing Class. We wish we had hands on expereince before we started, but alas, we had to settle for watching videos. It took us the same amount of time to process 5 birds as it does to do 100 now.
