Raising Chickens 2.0: No More Coop and Run
Thursday, March 24th, 6:30, Missoula Public Library (301 East Main Street), large conference room.

This is an exploration of different techniques for raising urban and rural chickens. What kind of chickens should you raise? How should you build your coop? How to protect your chickens from predators, plant feed you chickens can eat, cut back on chore, cut back on costs. Paul Wheaton will provide a presentation of his many years visiting farms and his own trials with coop design, rotational grazing, and techniques that allow chickens to feed and care for themselves for up to a week. Of course, somebody will have to collect the bounty of eggs.

I missed this lecture.  I had to work late and did not make it back to missoula untill 12:30am.

I hope you make this one into a podcast too.  Chicken paddocks are something I am really trying to work on.
 
I'm not dead! I feel happy! I'd like to go for a walk! I'll even read a tiny ad:
