Let's learn about backyard chickens and pigs!

Attendees will learn the basics of keeping chickens in your backyard along with predator proofing your coop and run, proper nutrition, and basic first aid. We will also discuss what it takes to have a pot belly pig as part of your family. There will be a guest appearance by a pot belly pig! We'll have time for Q&A about chickens and pigs.

There is no fee to attend (RSVP requested below) but donations are always welcome to support the barn pets at the ARL's Second Chance Ranch. If you are looking to add chickens or pigs to your family you can find what we have available (if any) on the website.
