Veteran chicken-keeper Bob Davis will give his popular Chicken Keeping 101 presentation several times in Raleigh, and for the low, low price of $5. Bob’s home in Five Points is a charter stop on the annual Hen-side the Beltline Tour d’ Coop in Raleigh, where chicken keepers invite the public into their backyards to see what’s hen-side. The sixth annual tour will be held May 21. I’m egging you on to save the date.
Bob’s talk lasts about two hours, including a Q&A, and will be given on Oct. 30 at 10 a.m., Oct. 31 at 2 p.m. and Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. at NC State University. Details are here. Topics covered include where to get birds from, how to house them, feed them, and keep them healthy.
