Raising Broilers on the Homestead
April 27, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Many backyard gardeners & homesteaders begin dabbling in raising livestock by getting laying hens. Another great starting point for adding animals to your homestead is with broilers – or 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.
