Kids and Chicks With Oprah Hen-Free
Patricia Foreman - Gossamer Foundation
Which came first: the chicken or the child? Usually, it's the chicken ... with a child trundling afterward, giggling with delight. This hens-on workshop shows kids (and adults) how to responsibly, and safely, handle a chicken. Learn tips, tricks and traps about how to keep interacting with chickens ... a fun experience that can last a lifetime. Kids learn about the value of family flocks in green communities. We will cover how chickens offer more than just eggs; they also have skills, acting as pesticiders, kitchen waste recyclers and compost creators. Understand why chickens are truly pets with benefits. There will be ample time for a question-and-answer session.
