Have you ever wondered about having a chicken coop in the city? Wouldn't it be great to have fresh, local, and organic eggs right in your backyard? Or maybe fluffy pets that don't make too much noise?

If you have ever thought of these things this is a class for you! Come our and learn about raising chickens in the city!

WeFarm America will walk you through some of the basics for getting your own flock started in your backyard. Everything from choosing or building your coop to what to feed them and where to find all the resources + materials you need. Dabblers will leave with a host of information and maybe even get to hang out with some real layers (egg laying chickens)!
