All About Chickens

Did you see Janey Powers presentation at the Grange on “Birds in Black?”  If you did, you know how entertaining and knowledgeable she is, and you won’t want to miss her talk this month.   You see, the farm stores are starting to sell those adorable baby chicks who will be laying those wonderful home grown eggs before you know it.

 

So join “Chicken Lady” Janey Powers for an evening all about chickens!  If you are thinking about starting a backyard flock, or want to pick up ideas to use with your existing flock, or you just like chickens, then this Forum is for you.  Interesting topics include:
