Small Scale Poultry: Do you really know what it takes?

New poultry owners, aspiring poultry owners, or those interested in exploring a new venture on a small scale basis are invited to participate in the Backyard Poultry Short Course, to be held starting March 28 until April 18 in Montgomery County, PA. The goal of the course is to assist poultry producers with an introduction to the resources and support available to them. Producers will also be able to develop a better understanding of what it takes to grow their own small scale poultry operation. Topics that will be covered are breed identification, brooding and growing, production of eggs and meat, nutrition and health, housing facilities, equipment, fly control, biosecurity, and resources. The final class in the course will be a small scale poultry farm tour. Come to learn about techniques in raising these fabulous birds! Email me for more information:
