Join the world of backyard chickens

Written by 

out eggsInterested in keeping chickens? Learn all about it from Ashley English at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 2, at the Canton Library.

 

English is the author of several books on a variety of small-scale homesteading topics, including Keeping Chickens (2010). The interest in keeping chickens is on the rise because they are relatively simple and inexpensive to maintain, they provide fresh eggs, help with bug and weed control, and they make great by-product fertilizer.

Find out what to consider beforehand (how much it will cost, the space that is needed, how much time it takes to maintain a flock, etc.) and how  to select your breed, how to obtain birds and when, and how to properly house and feed chickens. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. 828.648.2924.
