This is a FREE presentation and panel discussion on how to prepare for and care for backyard chickens.
It is open to EVERYONE -- not just Richmond Heights residents.
The event begins with a short presentation by Guy Niere, a backyard chicken instructor for St Louis Community College and sustainable living enthusiast. Mr. Niere will discuss chicken coop considerations, how to select chickens, and preparations to make for arriving chicks and their ongoing care.
After the presentation, a panel will answer questions from the audience. Panelists include Mr. Niere, plus:
~ Laura Streett, a Richmond Heights resident and backyard chicken owner. She also brings a wealth of information about chickens from her work at The Green Center in University City.
~ Rochelle Skolnick, a labor lawyer and musician who recently added a small flock of laying hens to her family’s yard in Richmond Heights.
