Say 'No' to Mail Order Chicks: The Challenges of Urban Chicken Keeping - March 26, 2017

“Say ‘No’ to Mail Order Chicks: The Challenges of Urban Chicken Keeping” – BHS’s 2017 Coffee Hour Speaking Series
 
Join Berkshire Humane Society (BHS) on Sunday, March 26th at 2:00pm, for the third event in its 2017 Coffee Hour Speaking Series (CHSS) – “Say ‘No’ to Mail Order Chicks: The Challenges of Urban Chicken Keeping” with Rachael Gordon.  Ms. Gordon is  Director of Morning’s Song Rooster Rescue and Co-founder of Ox N’ Yoke Farm Animal Sanctuary.
 
As backyard poultry keeping has seen a rise in popularity in recent years, the challenges of proper chicken husbandry have led to an exponential rise in unwanted and abandoned birds. Ms. Gordon will discuss proper methods of raising chickens on a small scale and explain the connection between backyard birds, purchased via mail order or from “Chick Days” and industrialized chicken farm abuse. 
 
The CHSS is held in the Family Dog School Training Room at BHS, 214 Barker Road, Pittsfield.  Always free and open to the public! Always great conversation and delicious desserts!
