Creating a Sustainable Homestead Poultry Flock

This comprehensive seminar covers information from the egg to the table: brooding principles, basic husbandry, feeds, feeding, and disease control. Participants will learn to identify heritage poultry breeds and find sources of baby chicks. The seminar introduces the art of breeding, which once learned, can free poultry holders from dependence on off-farm sources of baby chicks/poults. Participants will receive a profitable business plan, guiding you toward a sustainable income.
