This interactive discussion will give you practical and effective cutting-edge ways to integrate chickens in with your yard and garden. Topics include types of fencing (what works and what doesn't), when to let birds in­ and when to keep them out­ of specific crops life cycles, bird-scaping, and, best of all, getting wholesome, home-grown food for both you, and your flock. This is truly be a "Think Outside the Coop" workshop.
