Are you new to keeping chickens, or have you been keeping chickens and want to learn more? Join Dr. Colt W. Knight, University of Maine Cooperative Extension Livestock Specialist and Mrs. Ashley, University of Arizona Cooperative Extension, for a 2 hour “egg-citing” educational program on brooding chicks at home and raising laying hens in Maine. We will cover in detail how to raise chicks from egg to feather, and then how to care for them once they are older including housing, nutrition, winter care, and common diseases.

For more information and to register, visit the Feathered Homestead page.

Lunch is provided and registration fee offered with a sliding scale.
