Sat., November 15: Chicken keeping talk at Skokie Public Library, 1-2 PM: This talk will be about the reasons WHY people keep chickens; it will be helpful for people who are wondering what all the fuss is about and for those who want to meet some real hens! It is NOT a class on keeping chickens, since chickens are not (YET) allowed in Skokie. So bring your neighbor and come meet others who like chickens. Then change the local laws!
