This class takes you beyond the basics and delves into the subtler nuances and challenges of poultry husbandry.

Did you know chickens can get hernias?  Do you know how to identify and treat ailments such as bumblefoot and mites?  We’ll take you beyond the basics to deepen your knowledge of how to maintain a healthy, vigorous back yard flock year round.

Instructor:  Heath Ward of CityChick.  CityChick is an innovative local business offering everything you need for raising chickens in the city.  Heath builds coops, raises chicks, consults with people interested in learning how to care for chickens, and sells feed, treats, and other supplies.

Details:  The class will be held outdoors here at the nursery.  Please dress for the weather (sunscreen, hats, and sun glasses are strongly recommended), and feel free to bring snacks and beverages.  In the event of dangerous or exceptionally inclement weather, the class will be rescheduled.  We’ll call you the morning of the event to alert you of scheduling changes.
