Interested in tending a flock of your own? Imagine fresh eggs daily from your own backyard, a coop enlivening your landscape and chickens providing endless entertainment. Experience the wonders of caring for a flock in a limited space and decide if chickens are right for you.
In this class, we will discuss:
- Choosing breeds

Go home equipped with the basic information you need to decide if keeping chickens is right for you and ready to get started.
