Feathered Homestead: A Comprehensive Guide to Raising Backyard Chickens in Maine in Bangor

April 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Are you new to keeping chickens, or have you been keeping chickens for awhile now and want to learn more? Join Dr. Colt W. Knight, University of Maine Cooperative Extension Livestock Specialist and Ashley Wright, University of Arizona Cooperative Extension, for a 2-hour “egg-citing” educational program on brooding chicks at home and raising laying hens in Maine. We will cover in detail how to raise chicks from egg to feather, and then how to care for them once they are older including housing, nutrition, winter care, and common diseases.
