Participant workshop on Backyard Chickens

Since we have several of our participants who have shown interest in having chickens this year, we partnered with the Kentucky extension agency to offer a special poultry workshop.

Topics that were covered in the workshop included:

. Housing considerations (adequate ventilation and space, protection from predators)

.  Housing needs (waterer, feeder, perch, bedding material)

.  Nesting Boxes

.  Housing Designs.

.  Things to consider when purchasing your birds.

.  Egg collection and storage

.  Nutrition and Health

Seed Sorting

We had a lot of helping hands to sort our seeds this year, and we had a fantastic time!  Our Grow Appalachia participants love to volunteer and help out!
