PIC - Raising Backyard Chickens
Saturday 24 March 2018, 08:30am - 01:00pm
Location: Guelph, Ont.
As people are becoming more interested in where their food comes from, the trend of raising back yard chickens is growing. Guelph approves the growing of chickens however many growers have questions about welfare, environment, winter management, manure management and health of their birds.
The Poultry Industry Council’s course will help address some of these questions, as well as covering the basics of chick care, egg quality, feed and nutrition and disease management.
Join us at our next workshop on Saturday, March 24th 2018 from 8:30 am – 1:00 pm at the Kay House in Guelph (483 Arkell Road).
The session will be taught by Al Dam, OMAFRA Provincial Poultry Specialist and Dr. Mike Petrik, Technical Poultry Veterinarian and Animal Welfare Expert. The course is $95 per person (lunch included), participation is limited to 20 individuals and pre-registration is required.
