Backyard Chicken Keeping 

So, you’ve been thinking about raising chickens, but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you have a flock but want to learn more about organic nutrition or chicken swings…look no further!

Join experts Bruce Benedict of Benedict’s Home and Garden and Mackenzie Chauncey of Kent Nutrition Group, to learn everything you want to know about starting and raising your own backyard flock. Bruce will walk you step-by-step through choosing the best coop, breeds and feeders for you to keep your flock happy and healthy.
