We’ll cover breeds of chickens, housing and feeding needs, and egg production. We’ll work with the chickens for hands-on experience and cover feeding, checking for egg laying, and any other chicken questions that come up. Chickens are easy to raise, provide eggs and meat, add nutrients to your compost pile, work your garden soil, and help control insect pests. Plus, they are fascinating!
Open to adults and children/teens age 12 or older with an adult. Fees apply to all participants.
Drumlin Farm is committed to the concept of eating locally and eating well. We've launched an effort to build a diverse community of 'locavores' who share the belief that supporting local farming is best for our economy, our health, and our environment. These programs will encourage discussions of what it means to 'eat local', offer opportunities to share our local bounty, and have a good time while becoming more informed.
