Chickens 201 – Expand Your Chicken Knowledge

Sunday | April 27, 2014 | 2:00 pm — 4:30 pm

You are becoming a seasoned chicken keeper but you want to expand your knowledge and maybe your flock. In this class we’ll go over introducing new birds to your flock, health care from prevention to diagnosing problems, what to keep in your flock first aid kit for holistic and traditional care, nutrition and mixing your own feed and feed supplements, and the life cycle of chickens. We’ll also discuss dealing with predators, bio-security and behavioral issues and answer your most pressing chicken questions. Rebecca will bring her chicken to demonstrate examining a chicken for mites, being eggbound, and other health concerns.

Instructor: When Rebecca Daun-Widner started chickening with her family in 2008 in Asheville, NC, she never imagined she’d eventually have an urban flock in Oakland. Enjoying the benefits of backyard chickens – eggs! shenanigans! poultry problem solving!- keeps her happy and grounded.
