Chicken Keeping 101 - Fall 2010 classes

WHEN: Saturday, October 30, 2010, 10:00 a.m. OR Sunday, October 31, 2010, 2:00 p.m. OR Monday, November 1, 2010, 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: Room 159, Kilgore Hall, NC State University
COST: A fee of $5 per person will be requested. (No pre-registration required.)

This presentation by long-time chicken-keeper Bob Davis will confirm that keeping backyard chickens is both desirable and attainable. Chickens produce eggs, make wonderful pets, and provide an earth connection for their humans. Details of their care will be covered, including sources of birds, housing, feeding, and health.

Bob will present the 'Chicken Keeping 101' talk on three separate dates and times. It is the same talk each time, so you need only attend one. The talk lasts about 1.5 hours, depending on questions, with time for further questions at the end, so you might want to allow about two hours. Please try to arrive a little early, so that the class can start on time.

Free parking is available in the Brooks Lot on the corner of Brooks and Hillsborough. Kilgore Hall is directly across Hillsborough Street from the parking lot (bamboo structures in front). Room 159 is located in the center of the building on the first floor.
