Online Extension poultry webinar to be offered

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

In the 1980s and 1990s small-scale poultry and egg production made a comeback in the United States when more Americans decided they wanted a direct connection to their food. In recent years, raising chickens in the back yard became popular and in a case in Springfield.

The Small and Backyard Flock resource, available online at, has information on getting started as well as poultry anatomy, behavior, biology and management. The site includes more than 250 frequently asked questions and more than 350 terms in a glossary.

This same national resource is using local Extension professionals to provide an educational seminar from 7 to 8 p.m. Eastern Time on March 28. The event will focus on producing poultry meat on pastures.

To connect to the webinar visit just before 7 p.m. (Eastern).
