Extended The Power of Poultry

Interested in raising your own poultry flock for meat, eggs, or both? Have you recently started a flock, but feel you still have a lot to learn about bird health and nutrition? Perhaps you keep laying chickens now but want to get into meat birds? Are you interested in learning how to raise poultry to market for supplemental income? If the answer to any of these questions is "yes," you won’t want to miss this extended workshop. During this interactive session, learn the common sense basics of setting up for a breeder flock and how to make good breeding decisions for creating birds that meet breed standard while producing better meat and eggs in the process. Over time, you can make great improvements to your flock, which will translate to healthier, more productive, and ultimately more valuable birds.
