I’ll be giving a Backyard Chicken Keeping Workshop here at Little Pond Farm! It will be on July 30 from 2 to 4 pm.
(UPDATE: the class is full, but I’ll schedule another date if there is interest.)
You will get to meet my hens,
and their friends.
Some of their friends are grumpy. Don’t take it personally.
I will cover all of the basics – housing, feeding, and manure management. I’ll go over selecting and purchasing chickens and care of poultry of all ages.
You’ll learn about normal chicken behavior. (Yes, this is normal.)
And you’ll learn about messy bottoms.
You’ll get to tour my gardens, see the composting set-up and ask as many questions as you like!
You’ll even get to pick up a chicken and check for lice.
The fee is $20 and will include iced tea and cookies (homemade, of course!) Reserve your spot by emailing me. The class is limited to 15 people. Little Pond Farm is in Carlisle, MA, about 30 miles west of Boston. Can’t get here? Perhaps I can come to you. Can’t make this date? I’ll set another time if you can wrangle five more people to join you.
I hope to see you soon!
