Backyard Chickens 101 - and Chick Sale

If you are thinking about getting chickens, or are well past your first summer with these critters in your yard, come join us this Saturday to learn the ins and outs of raising poultry - and save some money on your first flock! Come visit with Jeff Raska from A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Dallas Backyard Chicken Meetup Group to learn what to do (and not to do) to get your backyard flock flourishing! 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, where more advanced chicken owners may ask their specific questions. 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. Gecko Hardware will offer 25% off all live chicks, and 10% off bedding and accessories to all Meetup members on class day. Just mention this special discount at checkout!
