Event Description

Instructor: Rachel Bess


Would you like delicious fresh eggs every day from your very own chickens? Rachel will show you how easy it is to keep laying hens in your backyard year round, even in the city!

Chickens make great pets, efficient bug and weed eaters and excellent soil tillers, not to mention that they provide us with wonderful fresh eggs! Learn everything you want to know about how to raise chickens in your backyard. It's easy, fun and very rewarding!

If we were there already I would definitely be there!! Backyard Chickens/eggs are something that I will be learning about and growing once we find a house. Arriving in August....probably buying by Dec.-Jan. ....See ya then!

I urge anyone considering backyard chickens to go to this wonderful workshop! Between this workshop and Tour de Coop, I learned so much that I felt very confident when I got my first girls and built their coop. Rachel is incredibly knowledgeable and a great presenter. Enjoy!
