10:30AM – noon
Good Earth Market, 3024 2nd Ave North (downtown Billings)
Urban Hens 101: everything you ever wanted to know about getting started with urban hens, but were afraid to ask. Animal care (including winter/summer issues) and husbandry, eggs-pectations, breed selection, safety and security for your micro-flock. Fun AND educational!
Urban hen-keeping is sweeping the nation with at least 94 of the 100 largest cities in the nation now supporting urban chickens! Canada and the UK are likewise heavily pro-chicken as more and more people realize that eating healthy, sustainably, and locally can start in our own backyards. Garden? Why not have a micro-flock?
Class fee is $15
Please RSVP to MagicCityHens@hotmail.com or with TJ at 371-5161. RSVP early as we expect our Spring classes to fill up quickly – this is a great opportunity to spend the colder days of winter preparing for Spring Chicks!
