Eggs on Legs in Your Backyard – The Basics for Sustaining Healthy Chickens

Kirstie Henning

9.30 am

Keeping chickens in the backyard is back in fashion! As we all become more aware of our health, the environment and how to be more sustainable, chickens are having a come-back.  They make wonderful friendly pets with lots of character and chooks are pets with benefits – healthy, nutritious and delicious eggs for the whole family.

In this 2 hour workshop, Kirstie Henning of City Chicks Sunshine Coast, will highlight the basics of keeping chickens and also explore the natural alternatives we can provide our chickens that is fun and affordable.  City Chicks has been running for over 9 years and provides a one stop chook shop for heritage breeds, laying hens, day old chicks, fertile eggs, ducks plus feed, drinkers/feeders and natural health alternatives.

Kirstie is very passionate about chickens and she will bring along some of her weird and wonderful flock to demonstrate and provide a hands on experience during the 2 hours. www.citychicks.com.au

These FREE events and workshops are open to everyone in the community, not just members and volunteers at the Gardens and there is no need to book a place  - unless otherwise indicated for that particular workshop.
