Spring Chickens: Basics of Urban

Chicken Keeping

Raising chickens is not just for farmers! Terry Golson has many years of experience caring for a small flock of laying hens in her backyard that supply eggs for her family’s table. In this slideshow and lecture, Terry will share all the information needed to get started with chickens, including breed selection, feed, and how to keep the hens healthy. Terry will talk about chicken behavior, predators, and daily chores. She will also show how she composts the manure and uses it in her garden.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
