Friends, join me for a class all about keeping backyard chickens tomorrow, Saturday, May 3, from 10:00am to noon. This presentation will be held indoors in the state of the art facility at the Aransas County Extension Office, 892 Airport Road, Rockport, TX 78382.
This class will be a dialogue, and we will listen to you and answer all your questions about chickens. Even if you don’t know the first thing about keeping chickens, you will leave with all the knowledge you need to start your own backyard program. Kids are definitely welcome!
Each family who attends the class will receive a free copy of the CD “Your Wholesome Heritage Garden, with Justin Butts”, from our radio program. Also, each family will receive two free chicks from our flock, to be picked up later at your convenience, when you are ready for them. Finally, there will be a delicious bar-be-que lunch following the class!
In this class, we will cover: 1) tips on feeding, housing, and care of your chickens, 2) solving and preventing problems, 3) all about chicks, roosters, eggs, and retired laying hens, 4) how to incorporate chickens into your yard and garden, and 5) all of your questions about chickens.
This class is sponsored by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office. Contact Dr. Kirsten Corda at 361-790-0103 for more information, or go to Texas Agri-Life Aransas County for details. There is a $20 registration fee for each family who attends.
