If you missed the last winterizing class, here's your chance to get some great info and have some fun with other chicken enthusiasts. Come visit with Jeff Raska from A&M AgriLife Extension Service to learn what to do (and not to do) to get your backyard flock ready for the colder months ahead! Jeff will address general chicken info as well as housing, bedding, feeding, healthcare and choosing the best breeds for the backyard flock.
A Q&A session will follow the presentation. The class is free but we need a proper headcount for planning purposes.
Be sure to share with all your friends and those that are interested in raising backyard chickens - and keeping them happy and healthy through the winter!
Afterwards, at 3:30, Gecko will host the Backyard Chicken Holiday Party. Bring some yummy people treats to share if you can (in a recyclable container). Gecko will provide beverages.
