Have you ever considered raising chickens in your backyard?
 
Jaclyn Ricci, Vice Chair and Gwenne Baile, Chair, of Camden County Chickens will teach you how easy and rewarding it is to raise a backyard flock. Learn everything from choosing the right chicks, how not to get a rooster, setting up a predator-proof coop, and keeping your hens happy and healthy year-round. This class is mandatory for most towns where there are new ordinances or pilot programs. It would be good for residents of other towns to attend the class if you’re are looking into modifying existing ordinances. There will be a hen joining us!
 
Come and ask your most pressing questions whether you are thinking about getting started or wanting to see if chickens are right for you and your family.
The class will run approximately 2 ½ hours with plenty of time for questions.

It will be a great time to find others from your town and form groups to help you get a few backyard hens legalized in your town. Already have a couple hens? Join in the discussion and support your neighbors.
Space is limited and pre-registration is strongly recommended.
The class fee is $10 per person if paid by PayPal, cash or check prior to September 1st. After that time and to pay at the door, the fee is $20 per person.
For more information, call 856-858-6644 or cell (856-816-8508) or email Gwenne Baile at gbaile@verizon.net.
