Pets or Meat
You should know by now that there are more chickens in the world than any other type of bird. They may not be smart or beautiful or willing to learn tricks, but they sure are popular. And for good reason. The feathered ground scrabblers eat pests, lay eggs, and can be brutally slaughtered for meat, if need be.
On Wednesday, July 29, learn how to raise the useful critters at home during the "Raising Chickens in Your Backyard" presentation. Local artist and urban-chicken expert Rachel Bess will tell you everything you need to know about raising em, from taking care of the babies to adhering to city ordinances.
