March 24, 2012: Backyard Chicken Basics Workshop with Home to Roost

It’s that time again!

Come join Angelic Organics Learning Center and Home to Roost for a class on raising chickens!

Basic Backyard Chicken Care

March 24, 2012 10:00am – 1:00pm

Farm fresh eggs from your own back yard?


Please join us for a workshop on best practices for Basic Backyard Chicken Care in Chicago and surrounding communities.

Raising chickens as pets and for eggs is LEGAL in Chicago – and part of our growing local food and urban agriculture scene.

Keep yourself, your chickens, AND your neighbors happy – from daily needs and year-round care to relevant city regulations.

Our instructor is the informative and engaging Jen Murtoff of Home to Roost Urban Chicken Consulting.

You will leave the workshop with the knowledge, recommendations, and resources you need for your own home flock – and you’ll make connections with other chicken enthusiasts in Chicago.

Actual costs of workshops are close to double our workshop fees. If you are able, please consider making an additional donation to help cover the full cost of your workshop.
