City Chickens and Ducks

Almost everyone buys eggs, and almost anyone with a small backyard can keep a few chickens or ducks. They are relatively quiet, create a wonderful nitrogen source for your garden (their composted poo), and their feed can be supplemented with kitchen scraps and weeds. Most hens lay an egg every day or two, so their eggs will be a source of delight and culinary inspiration. Chickens and ducks also teach us about our connection to the natural world.
In this class, we’ll empower people to make the leap into chicken ownership. We’ll go over chicken requirements, responsibilities, setting up coops, raising chicks, anatomy, predation and disease, and best breeds for the city.
Instructors: Urban Eggs; Cooper Funk and Paul Glowaski
Class Fee $30
