Chickens are an easy and delightful animal to keep, whether on a farm, a small homestead or just in your backyard.
This class will cover the basics to help get anyone started in keeping a small flock of chickens (around 30 or fewer).
Topics include: basic chicken physiology, baby chick care, equipment needs and recommendations, shelter needs, feeding, basic health management, and hygiene and cleanliness methods.
