What other pet makes you breakfast AND helps with garden work? In this class we’ll teach you key information for getting started raising chickens, including benefits, breed selection, and time considerations to this new pet commitment. We’ll provide an overview of a daily chicken maintenance routine to help participants decide if raising chickens is right for them and explore some ways to integrate poultry into a backyard food production system. Michelle Hernandez, Founder and Event Director of the Funky Chicken Coop Tour® brings her years of experience raising chickens, ducks, and guineas into the classroom experience. $15, at the 4001 S. Lamar Community Room.
