The William Byrd Community House on Cherry Street will be hosting a series of classes on keeping chickens this week:
There is so much new information about family flocks, that the learning curve for the majority of our population starts with never having seen, or touched a live chick—to keeping and employing a family flock.
The old ways of chicken keeping are not the best ways. And the commercial ways of chicken husbandry are completely different from keeping family flocks. Micro-flock chicken husbandry has evolved with many new ways that are more sanitary, safer, and productive. That’s why we created The Chickens and You™ training series, so that folks can easily have access to courses, and learn first hand the humane, and cutting-edge ways and advantages of micro-flock poultry management.
