Town and Country Presents “The Lost Ways”

March 16-Backyard

Chicken Flocks

If you have never raised livestock one of the best way to get started is chickens. They don’t need much room and they are one of the least expensive animals to raise. They are also just a lot of fun, each hen with her own unique personality. And oh yeah, the eggs out of your back yard taste sooo much better than the store bought varieties plus backyard eggs contain less cholesterol, less saturated fat and far more vitamin A, vitamin E and omega 3 fatty acids than the ones in styrofoam crates.

Backyard Chicken Flocks for Beginners will be taught by Winnfield’s very own Donnie Moon. Our county agent will help beginners get off to the right start as he covers the basics of raising backyard poultry.
