Pastured Poultry Workshop

Our County Extension Agent invited us to host her Pastured Poultry Workshop.  It was held yesterday, May 13, 2014.  It was unseasonably hot but at least we had no rain.
We pulled 5 birds from their flocks to be used in Dan's demonstration.  They
were happy to go home again when the show was over.
Here are some photos of the well-attended, informative event.

or how to determine a good layer from a cull.

The next workshop will be held September 30th on the topic of "Small Flock Health."  Location TBD.
