MOTHER EARTH NEWS in collaboration with The Livestock Conservancy and author/speaker Patricia Foreman present this 2 hour intensive breakout session geared toward new or soon-to-be chicken breeders. This workshop is scheduled for Sunday afternoon, Feb. 18, from 2:30-4:30 at the Bell County Expo.
In this interactive session, you will learn the common sense basics of setting up for a breeder flock and how to make good breeding decisions for creating birds that meet breed standard while producing better meat and eggs in the process. Over time, you can make great improvements to your flock, which will translate to healthier, more productive, and ultimately more valuable birds.
This session will include hands-on instruction for handling live chickens for the purpose of breeding birds and their evaluation as well as hands on egg selection from a variety of quality and ages.
This session is designed to be very personal and interactive, so space is strictly limited. Reservations are available first-come, first-served. Do not miss this one-of-a-kind experience!
