Chicken Keeping 101 - Spring 2012 Classes


WHEN: Saturday, June 2, 9:30 a.m. OR Sunday, June 3, 2:00 p.m. OR Monday, June 4, 6:30 p.m.

WHERE: Room 159, Kilgore Hall, NC State University

COST: A fee of $10 per person will be requested. (No pre-registration required.)

This presentation by long-time chicken-keeper Bob Davis will confirm that keeping backyard chickens is both desirable and attainable. Chickens produce eggs, are wonderful pets, and provide an earth connection for their owners. Details of their care will be covered, including sources of birds, housing, feeding, and health.

Bob will present the 'Chicken Keeping 101' talk on three separate dates and times. It is the same talk each time, so you need only attend one. The talk lasts about 2.5 hours, depending on questions, with time for further questions at the end.

Free parking is available in the Brooks Lot on the corner of Brooks and Hillsborough. Kilgore Hall is directly across Hillsborough Street from the parking lot (bamboo structures in front). Room 159 is located in the center of the building on the first floor. Please try to arrive a little early, so that we can start on time. Doors to the building are locked shortly after the class begins.



I will be out of town for all of these classes but am VERY interested in other potential dates. How often are these offered? Can people skype in?



The classes are usually offered twice a year - shortly after the Tour D'Coop, and shortly after the State Fair in late October. As far as we know there are no plans for Skype access, though you could inquire with Bob directly -

do you have to be registered? Also can a 10 year old come?

No pre-registration required and a 10-year-old can come, though keep in mind it is about a 2.5 hour talk.

will the e-mail list provide updated information on the class dates for october?

Yes, we will be sending out an email to our list to let everyone know about classes in the future.

I would like to know the October class dates.

October class dates would likely be announced in August or September. We recommend signing up for our email list to be alerted when they have been scheduled.
