Learn how to examine your chicken and what to look for if they are acting sick or hurt. The instructor will bring one of her chickens to demo on. We’ll cover the most common health problems and what to keep in your flock first aid kit for holistic and traditional care. We’ll discuss prevention through nutrition and mixing your own feed and feed supplements. We’ll also talk about predators, bio-security, and behavioral issues in order to answer your most pressing chicken questions. And we will host the class in a backyard with a great chicken coop, so you can get a sense of safe and secure coops for your chickens.
