Online Chicken-Keeping Classes with Home to Roost

Home to Roost is now offering online chicken-keeping programs for libraries, conservatories, schools, and other organizations interested in providing meaningful online content for their stay-at-home patrons.

Everyone’s getting chickens, it seems, and Home to Roost offers several presentations on this decade’s “it” bird. These online programs would help your organization connect with patrons who currently have birds and those who are thinking about raising backyard chickens in the current shelter-in-place environment.

I’d recommend beginning with the Chicken-Keeping Class (2 hrs), followed by Chicken Coop Basics (2 hrs). You can also host a simple Q&A session with Home to Roost! (I also offer all of my classes in-person and design custom programs for kids or to suit your needs!)

Home to Roost’s classes are based on personal experience, rigorous research, best practices, interactions with avian veterinarians, as well as more than 10 years of helping folks in Chicago raise chickens – and of course a great love for poultry. I have presented at public libraries, Morton Arboretum, Chicago Botanic Garden, Garfield Park Conservatory, and Coop Camp, appeared at various festivals, and created a chicken-keeping program for the Cook County Sheriff’s Office.

If your organization is interested in hosting a class, you can download a list of my class offerings or connect with me via my contact page. Let me know if you’d like a class that is not on the list! I’m always happy to accommodate special requests!
