Hope to see you at the end of year sale at Roddick's! There will be huge savings, a hot dog bbq hosted by the DRC, as well as Otter Co-op will have a nutritionist on hand to answer any questions you may have about feeding your chickens properly!! See you there!!
In BC we are fortunate to have some of the best chicken doctors in the world right here at the Ministry of Agriculture. Not to mention that we have a chicken marketing board that affords us small-timers the luxury of a 4 day poultry health class.
It doesn't matter if you are advanced, beginner, or have a
backyard flock. Everyone can ask questions and learn in a relaxed setting. You will learn basics such as how an egg is made or how to implement your bio security plan.
Remember, an ounce of prevention works so much better than a
pound of antibiotics. It's a lot easier on the birds too!
Sign up now, its free to attend this Chicken University!! Due to limited seating, if you aren't able to attend all 4 classes please sign up at another date. Don't chicken out after the first one...Show us that you're a graduate and a capable chicken parent and receive 5.00 chick cash at Grade Eh Farms online store!
Thanks for dropping by. I'm Matthew Nelson, farmer of Grade Eh Farms. I post on where my love and passion for life intersect with family, farming, food, & chicken for the soul.
