Try a workshop to help chooks make best eggs
THEY are the gardeners' best friend, and later this month they will have their moment in the sun.
Coffs Harbour Regional Landcare is continuing its highly successful workshop series with Jade Woodhouse giving the low-down on chooks at the Botanic Garden meeting room on July 29.
Jade is a poultry enthusiast and there is nothing she doesn't like about these busy creatures.
She will talk about the housing, management, containment and health of chickens and cover everything you need to know to keep your own chickens productive, which breeds and how many, through to nutrition and behavioural needs.
Also on the agenda will be discussion about how to best utilise chickens in your home garden.
Bookings are essential as there are a limited number of places.
