Backyard Chickens at the Lake County Farm Bureau

The Lake County Farm Bureau is pleased to offer not one, but two informational classes that will deal with the keeping of and caring for backyard chickens! Kerri Gburek, a local “eggspert”, will introduce attendees to the basics of keeping chickens. Topics will include; chicken selection, housing and coop options, space requirements, nutrition and feed, medical needs, predator protection, and much more!

The class instructor, Kerri Gburek “The Chicken Eggspert”, will share her hands on experience from raising chickens. In addition to classes such as Backyard Chickens 101, Kerri also offers a “Pop Up Poultry” program where they deliver a coop with two egg-laying hens along with everything needed for six months of taking care of the birds. This includes coop, feed, bedding, medical supplies, and perhaps most important of all the guidance of those experienced with raising chickens!
