BACKYARD CHICKEN KEEPING

WED 25/8 5.00PM-6.00PM VIA ZOOM

Welcome to a free chicken-keeping workshop that is tailored to the urban backyard. We’ll talk about design aspects such as the coop, perch, nest box, food, water and type of run. The highly practical advice is underpinned by what science tells us chickens really want.
Modern chickens are an upgraded version of the junglefowl they once were. Please, they say, will you consider our tenacious junglefowl desires and behaviours when you design our home? Nobody managed to breed them out of us, so we need your assistance here. In return, we’ll be much healthier, happier and easier to keep.
Andrea Graves is an urban chicken keeper, science writer and editor with a PhD in animal behaviour focussed on chicken welfare. She lives in Hamilton with her husband and two teenage children. She has a popular Facebook page, Keeping Chickens NZ, and a blog with the same name.
