    How much of the class will focus on raising chicks? We already have backyard hens but we acquired them when they were a year old. We would like to raise chicks this spring.

      The class's purpose is to teach the beginning process. How to raise chickens from the very start. It will be the first thing that we talk about. So yes this would be a fun and great class

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
