Chickens can be a wonderful addition to your farm or backyard, and with the sticker shock of egg and meat prices, many people are considering raising their own flock. Before you dive in, join us for a free webinar on March 14 at 5:30 p.m. CT for tips to get started. Local Foods and Small Farms Educator Katie Bell will discuss a diverse range of breeds for laying or meat production. Program highlights include:

  • Different breeds and their purpose (meat and egg)
  • Selecting healthy chickens and chicks
  • Different coops, chicken tractors, and flock protection
  • Chicken nutrition & more!

The webinar is free, but registration is required. Visit
