Raising Backyard Chickens 101


 Farmhand Gail is working overtime to prepare a wonderful workshop this Saturday here at the farm for folks interested in raising their own laying hens for fabulously fresh eggs.  Participants will leave with a bunch of resources for getting off to a good start with their own flocks.  We've had great response from the public, through our Local Harvest page, and we will have a really fun day, meeting new friends.  Instead of a fee, I'll put out a donation jar to help Gail offset some of her expenses in sharing all this great information.

 
If you'd like a spot at the workshop, and a copy of all the materials, please let me know either in the comments below, or in an e-mail (jacobsreward at juno dot com), and we'll be happy to have you with us.  This workshop will be part discussion, part coop tour, and maybe a little chicken-handling for the newbies.


Our regular spinning/knitting time will still go on in the LRB, so please come for that, even if you don't need to know how to raise chickens.

  3. Judith - since I can't rebuild all my coops from the ground up, I'm just going to try to stay ahead of the snakes by collecting eggs several times a day. My hope is that if they don't find anything when the come to the nests, they'll get bored and quit. Also, I find that as spring turns into summer, the snake sightings are much less frequent.
