Workshop Description

Join Kim Chisholm for an hour of chicken fun! She'll talk about herbs that are safe and beneficial for chickens both in and out of the coop. Then she'll cover the benefits and challenges of finding, keeping and feeding slugs and bugs to your chickens, including growing your own mealworm farm. Next, she'll discuss easy ways to obtain and offer various grains as treats or supplemental forage. And she’ll finish up with several creative treat and trinket ideas to entertain your birds. You're sure to take away a tidbit that your chickens will love.
