Backyard Chickens – Saturday 12 November 2016 | 8.30am – 2pm
Chickens are the ultimate sustainability machine – in the garden, they happily scratch up weeds, seeds, and grubs while feeding the garden with their manure, they love to consume most kitchen scraps and are a good supplier of fresh quality eggs. In this full day workshop, you will learn how to integrate chickens into your garden and we will build a simple chicken tractor. Topics include:
Identify the benefits and problems with keeping chickens.
Choose the right chicken breed and number, for your needs.
Essential requirements for creating a healthy and happy life for your chickens –food, shelter, space and bird health.
