About this Event

SIMPLE STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL BACKYARD CHICKENS (BEYOND THE BASICS)

Wondering how some people make chicken keeping look easy?

Whether you've had chooks for years or are looking to start a flock of your own, join me to learn the tips and tricks of that will have your hens staying healthy and keeping your pantry full of eggs!

I want you to be confident in handling your flock and knowing the basic steps to take for vibrantly healthy hens (as naturally as possible!)

You'll learn all about:

1. Caring for heritage chickens vs Isa Browns

2. Best breeds and where to find healthy pullets and hens

3. Diseases of fowls, health checks, parasites and symptoms of illness and which products actually work

4. The BEST feeders, drinkers, coops/houses

5. Hygiene, housing, yard and bedding considerations including deep litter

6. Summer care (planning for heat waves), autumn care (annual moulting) and winter care - avoiding respiratory illnesses

7. Feeding - Grains, Greens, Grit & Grubs. My favourite feeds and how to pick a good quality feed.

8. Basics of behaviour including broody/clucky hens and preventing boredom

9. The secret old breeders’ tips for keeping your feathered friends in tip top condition.

WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR? Most people that attend this workshop have had chickens for a while (some, years) but they are keen to hear about new, different and easier ways of doing things. If you're considering getting chickens for the first time, you'll start off on the right foot! Know what to look for when purchasing birds, the best feed, the best coop, the best feeder, the best bedding etc for your set up. I also cover the keeping of commercial layers such as Isa Browns, and what you need to do differently if you have them in your flock.

WHEN: 10am-12:30pm, Saturday 14 March, 2020

WHERE: "The Shed" Eastern Hub, 285A McKillop St, East Geelong VIC 3219
