The Surprises and Rewards of Raising Backyard Chickens

Have you ever thought: I might like to raise backyard chickens? If so, then this is the workshop for you! I knew so little when I began--and, learned a lot on the fly. I want to help others be better prepared for this wonderful journey. I'll share how to: keep your chicks safe and healthy, break a 'broody' hen, deal with bullying and a rowdy rooster, keep your coop bug-free, clean your eggs and test for freshness --as well as some crazy things that would never have crossed your mind!

You'll even learn how to make the world's best smoothie for your chicken--my own special recipe. After our time together--you'll see why I am now known as the 'Chicken Chick.' I hope to see you in my workshop! Cluck, cluck.

Ages: 12+ Up     Materials: None needed

About your teacher, Mary Norman: I began my career as a radio and television anchor and later migrated to non-profit work-- which I still greatly enjoy. In addition to raising money and awareness for awesome organizations, I love livin' the country life. My daughter and I left the 'city' behind and moved to a 5-acre farm that we share with our chickens and cats. I am big on taking chances, reinventing life, and learning new things at any age. Carpe diem!
