Clucking Around

Alright, friends. It’s time to chat chickens!!!!

I’m prepping for the “Backyard Chickens” class I’ll be teaching tomorrow evening at the local community college and that got me thinking that I need to post my next class chez English. So, let’s engage in a bit of “fowl language,” to borrow from the title of my very clever friend Kristina‘s column in Chickens magazine.

This is a great time of year to start talking about chickens. If you’ve got them, we’ll discuss things to survive the winter intact. If you’re thinking of getting them, we’ll discuss what’s involved in sourcing chicks and caring for them. In short, we’ll go from chick to layer-comb to toes, as it were.

So, here’s the details:
*We’ll meet out here on October 15th (leaf peeping season!!!)
*The class will run from 11-2 p.m..
*Class cost is $40 per person.
*Lunch will be provided, along with beverages, and is included in the cost, along with hand-outs.
*Size is limited to 15 people.

If you’re interested in attending, let me know in your comment. Please be sure to leave a means of contacting you there, as well, or, if you’d prefer to keep your information private, just shoot me an email at: ashleyadamsenglish(at)gmail(dot)com. Also, if you have any dietary concerns (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, hate raw onions, etc.), let me know in your comment please.

See some of you soon, hopefully! And, to really dangle a carrot in front of you, let me just tell you that it is absolutely GORGEOUS out here that time of year. Just sayin’….
