    We had over 60 people turn out for this meeting. It was great to see such an interest and so many families. Linda Nellet shared an informative video of what it is like to tend to your chicken coop. Her hen Jane was very well behaved and exhausted being out past her bed time. Jennifer Murtoff offers great support as always and if you wish to learn more she is holding a class at the Chicago Botanic Gardnes on October 20th.

    I will suggest that to the Chicago Chapter leaders. Perhaps for the spring.
