Poultry Workshop Series: Brooding

New Entry Sustainable Farming Project

Ogonowski Memorial Fields

126 Jones Ave, Dracut, MA

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

4 to 6 p.m.

 

New Entry’s next poultry workshop is coming up! Our Brooding Workshop is next Tuesday, May 24th, from 4–6 p.m., and it’s only $15 (free for New Entry graduates)—register now!

 

This field training will cover how to get poultry through the crucial first few weeks. We’ll go over equipment, setting up a brooder and preparing for the chicks to arrive; watching chick behavior and letting them tell you what adjustments to make; feed, water and grit; chick health concerns and what to watch for; predator control; alternate brooder designs; and moving the birds out to pasture. Best of all, the stars of the show will be our chicks — around 150 in all, and half of them will be less than a week old.

 

This is the third installment of our poultry workshop series. Click here to read about the rest.
