Keeping small flocks of poultry has been a keystone of sustainable living for centuries. This local food tradition is returning to cities and towns across America.
We want to show that well maintained flocks are good neighbors.
They’re much quieter than dogs, lawn mowers and traffic, they are not smelly and rather than spread disease, small diverse flocks are the solution to avian diseases that evolve in highly concentrated commercial poultry operations.
If you have domestic fowl, plan to get some or are just curious, please join our group!!!
Members are welcome to suggest event ideas, host events, and start discussion topics on our discussion board.
