Fall Chicken Classes - Oct 14th and November 4th

We have some GREAT free fall classes coming up in October and November!

October 14th, 1:30 pm - "Keeping Chickens Healthy - What to Keep in Your Flock's First Aid Kit", sponsored by Farmer's Feed.

We'll talk about:
  • How to tell if your chicken is healthy and well  - everyone wants healthy, happy chickens...but how can you tell if they are doing well and productive?
  • How to tell if your chicken is sick - learn the signs of illness and what is normal and what isn't. Being able to identify a sick chicken quickly is an important skill of every backyard chicken keeper!
  • First steps to take if your chicken might be sick - if you have a sick chicken, what do you do first? What are good bio-security techniques to use so you can protect the rest of your flock?
  • Common chicken concerns such as wounds, Coccidiosis, Fowl Pox, Infectious Bronchitis, external parasites

November 4th, 1:30pm - "Setting-Up & Winterizing Your Coop", sponsored by Farmer's Feed.
We'll talk about:
  • What your chickens need during the cold & rainy months to stay protected from the elements
  • If your chickens REALLY need a heater in their coop  to stay warm at night
  • What to watch-out for, and common red-flags when the weather turns stormy, such as feed issues, health issues, and egg issues
  • Common tips and tricks - what kind of coop you need and how big! Set-up options and what to consider when deciding on a coop lay-out
 So come on down to Farmer's Feed these two Saturdays, and learn something new about backyard chicken keeping! Farmer's Feed is located in Stockton, on the corner of Alpine and Miner. Contact them for questions at (209) 465-5739.
