April 24: Save the Date!

Marshmallow-PeepHey, all you Fairbanks Peeps:  April 24th, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, there will be a mini-workshop on chickens at the Tanana District Extension office.  I will be joined by Steve Davila, manager of Alaska Feed Store.  He will talk about keeping and butchering meat birds, and about heritage breeds; I will cover egg layers for beginners, and keeping a laying flock healthy and laying through the long Alaska winter.

I’ll be sending out another notice closer to the event; just wanted to give Fairbanks folks a heads up – calendars fill up quickly in the spring months.

About Mara Bacsujlaky

As a 4-H agent with the University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service, I offer workshops and information about raising and keeping small backyard flocks in Alaska. These services are designed for the hobbyist that keeps primarily laying chickens for home use of eggs and, secondarily, meat.
