About The Event
Want to get prepared for when Calgary finally allows urban chickens? Not sure what's involved and whether or not chickens are for you? We believe it's very important to be responsibly informed and educated on basic chicken care before making the commitment to own and manage your backyard birds. Come on out to URBAN FARM SCHOOL to tap into the expertise of our chicken guru, Jenni Bailey, where you'll benefit from her hands-on knowledge and experience with raising urban chickens. Find out all about these fascinating little critters, how to manage for optimal health, and explore the pros and cons of urban chicken management as well as which breeds are best for our climate and conditions. We'll also look at various coop styles and discuss what works and what doesn't! Whether you're on a few acres or living the urban farming dream, this is sure to be a fun workshop!
