BACKYARD CHICKENS 101
March 14, 2021
Thinking of getting chickens but aren't sure where to start? Craving farm-fresh eggs straight from your backyard? This is the class for you!
Long before we ever started our farm, we kept five chickens in our tiny backyard in Brooklyn. Today on Moonshot Farm, we have over 150 birds laying rainbow eggs that sell out every week. We can't wait to share the tricks we've learned along the way on keeping a productive, healthy flock of birds, no matter the scale.
Some of the topics we'll cover in this 2-hour course include:
Basic equipment, supplies, and coop requirements
Caring for baby chicks
Our favorite chicken breeds
Feed, treats, and supplements
Daily chicken chores and maintenance
How to get the best-tasting fresh eggs
Predators and common problems
