Are you interested in raising chickens? More people are making an effort to eat food that’s raised locally. Raising chickens is both easy and “green.” Chickens are one of the easiest, most forgiving, creatures for a small farm to manage.
Dr. Ken Koelkebeck and Pam Utterback, specialists from the University of Illinois, will share knowledge in the basics of raising poultry during a presentation to be held from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2012, at University of Illinois Extension, Grundy County, 4004 N. Division (Farm Bureau Building), Morris. This workshop will be beneficial for both the “seasoned” and new chicken managers.
Fee for participation is $10 per person ($5 for each additional person from the same homestead) and includes light refreshments.
Pre-registration and fee is required by Aug. 27.
