Backyard Chicken Keeping

Backyard Chicken Keeping

Location: Outdoors on the 4th floor terrace

Want to keep chickens and still be able to take vacations without worrying about your birds? Want to spend less time on chicken chores than you spend on cooking your chickens' eggs, as we do?  Join us for a presentation by Frank Hyman, local author of "Hentopia."

Even if you already have a coop, or are buying a coop, you'll benefit from the time-saving ideas regarding feeding, watering, cleaning, defending and maintaining a coop and hen habitat!

Frank Hyman is the author of the popular book How to Forage for Mushrooms Without Dying: An Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Identifying 29 Wild, Edible Mushrooms. He learned his craft from foragers in eight states and six countries. He teaches foraging to chefs, arborists, organic farmers, gardeners and the general public.
