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.
