Sign Up for a Chicken Keeping Workshop!

I’ve added another date to my Chicken Keeping Workshop calendar – Sunday, June 10. From 1 to 3 pm you are invited here at Little Pond Farm, in Carlisle, MA, to learn what you need to know to have a happy, healthy flock of your own.

You will get to tour the property and go into the barns.

We’ll look at chicken bottoms.

You’ll get to pet the chickens, and hold one if you’d like!

We’ll sit on the porch while I talk about everything from chicken behavior to coop design.

And there will be iced tea and cookies (homemade, of course.)

While here you can wave hello to Queen Candy, and you can pet the goats. The boys are eager to have visitors.

The cost is $25 per person. Email me to reserve a spot. Classes fill quickly, so don’t wait.

Also on the calendar – on May 16 I will be at the Farmer’s Museum in Cooperstown, NY, with a Chicken Keeping talk and slide show. I am so excited about this opportunity to see a beautiful part of the country that I’ve never been to, and to tour a great living history museum! Do any of you live out that way? Please come!


  1. I’d love to come just to meet you in person.

    By the way I love that table.

    • A bit far to come from Missouri, though I did have someone drive up from NJ, and also down from Maine!

  2. Would love to be there! Terry..are those silver chicken earrings you are wearing?

  3. Sigh, that would be an awesome thing to do but VA is way way to far.

    And about the goats, I was wondering have you ever heard of pack goats for hiking Terry ? I was reading about them, and while yours won’t be ideal for long trips due to their short legs. They might be ideal for a pinic in a park and could carry maybe 25 to 30 pounds each.

  4. Wish I lived near enough to come. Someone else will have to pet the hens and goats and wave to Candy for me.
