Raising Backyard Broilers
April 19 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree – $15
Many backyard gardeners & homesteaders begin with livestock by getting laying hens. Another great starting place with livestock animals can be broilers – chickens being raised specifically for meat.
Broilers are small and easy to handle, they stay on your farm for just a short period of time, and start-up costs can be pretty low. Join Jacki Martinez Perkins of MOFGA for this introductory webinar on how to get started raising broilers.
Jacki will share practical advice when it comes to housing, feeding and pasturing these birds, as well as breed options. She will also talk about the challenges of brooding your own broiler eggs and some practical biosecurity measures.
