Take your flock keeping skills to the next level, emphasizing preventive care and humane handling. I'll demonstrate intermediate to advanced chicken health procedures that any willing flock keeper can perform, and give you a chance to try them. No previous experience necessary; participate at your comfort level.
--Perform a physical examination.
--Trim wings, nails, beaks, and spurs.
--Give vaccines and injections.
--Apply pinless peepers and wing bands.
--Discuss euthanasia techniques and equipment.
--Optional: Perform a chicken post-mortem to gather clues to cause of death.
If you have skills and experience you'd like to share, I'd welcome the help. Let me know if you'd like to be an instructor.
$15.00/person covers the cost of supplies and equipment.
Rain or shine.
Happy hour to follow for anyone who'd like to stay and talk chicken. BYO beverage and snack to share.
