Nature Center Program on Raising Chickens

Jamestown, NY – It is becoming more and more popular to raise chickens in the backyard.

The Audubon Nature Center is presenting “Backyard Chickens,” featuring a panel of local folks who have done just that, on Saturday, March 14, from 1:30-3:30 p.m.

Raising egg-laying chickens in the backyard is fun, self-sufficient and educational. Not only do you get fresh eggs out of the endeavor, you also gain some great insight in the poultry brain, get some laughter at their antics, and, if you choose, get some tasty dinners once your birds are past prime laying age.

Come armed with questions for a group of folks who have raised birds in their yards. While not professional (are there professional backyard chicken raisers?), they have first-hand knowledge of how to raise birds right here in our area.

Panelists will be from both New York and Pennsylvania to hopefully cover the various local regulations and rules about poultry in backyards, and all have numerous years of raising chickens small-scale.

Fee for participation is $16 or $12 for Friends of the Nature Center.

Reservations with payment are required by midnight, Tuesday, March 10, 2015: call (716) 569-2345 to reserve and pay by credit card or click on “Backyard Chickens” at www.jamestownaudubon.org to reserve and pay online.

Nature Center education programs are funded with support from the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, Jessie Smith Darrah Fund, Holmberg Foundation, Hultquist Foundation, Johnson Foundation, and Lenna Foundation.

The Audubon Nature Center is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania.
