Come learn everything you need to know for a healthy brood from Franchesca Duval, the head chicken wrangler at Alchemist Farm. This two-hour class is designed for those who want to know the basics of backyard chicken keeping, from which breeds to select for your flock goals to how to build a predator-proof coop.

Attendees will learn about brooding of chicks, feed for all stages of a chicken’s life, proper coop maintenance, integration of existing flocks, collection and storage of eating eggs, how to set yourself up for success in relating to your new yard companions and how to look for signs of illness. Two of Alchemist Farms favorite chicken breeds will be on display and there will be time for class questions.
