Chicken workshop with Gail Batten
We had a fantastic turnup to the chicken workshop yesterday and it is good to see that so many people are seriously interested in keeping their own chickens.
Gail gave us a good understanding on what is needed to keep chickens in your backyard and her presentation covered everything from feeding, maintenance, hatching, health, organic food and how to trim their wings so they won’t end up in your neighbours garden.
It was great to hear how simple it is to keep your own hens and with having fresh eggs as payment you can easily find a chicken sitter while you are on holiday. Now it is just a matter of time to convince my husband how cool they are and if we should fence them in or instead fence the vegetable garden.
Thank you to Gail who generously contributed all the income of this workshop towards the planting of more fruit trees for our community.
