River Valley Co-op Virtual Workshop: Happy & Healthy Backyard Chickens 

Are you planning to start your own backyard flock of chickens? Adding poultry to your backyard, or farm can build your soil nutrients, control pest populations and even clear land while supplying you with healthy food. Farmer Kirby Lecy will present all the things she wished she had known about natural chicken keeping before adding them to their small farm. She will cover all the basics of keeping poultry for eggs, including: 

  • A tour of their coop and discussion about shelters 
  • How to feed your chickens and convert food waste into nutritious food 
  • Keeping your flock healthy 
  • Managing manure 
  • Ways to use chickens to fertilize your landscape and manage insect pests
