Raising egg-laying chickens in the backyard is fun, self-sufficient and educational. Not only do you get fresh eggs out of the endeavor, you also gain some great insight in the poultry brain, get some laughter at their antics, and, if you choose, get some tasty dinners once your birds are past prime laying age.
Come armed with questions for a group of folks who have raised birds in their yards. While not professional farmers, they have first-hand knowledge of how to raise birds right here in our area.
Panelists will be from both New York and Pennsylvania to cover the various local regulations and rules about poultry in backyards, and all have numerous years of raising chickens small-scale.
