Backyard Poultry Workshop

  • Wednesday, January 31, 2018, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Would you like to be collecting farm fresh eggs from your own flock of chickens or perhaps you would like to sit down to a dinner of roast turkey that you raised yourself. Raising poultry in the backyard can be a rewarding and family fun activity while at the same time providing greater food self- sufficiency.

Russell Welser, Senior Resource Educator will share his years of experience in raising backyard poultry. He will be covering the basics including: different breeds; purchasing and receiving your birds; equipment and housing requirements; feeding and watering; disease and parasite prevention; egg handling; slaughtering and regulations.

To register or for additional information, contact Cornell Cooperative Extension at 585-394-3977 x 427 or email Nancy with your name, address, and phone number. 

Please register by January 26, 2018.
