Are you thinking about raising chickens but don't know where to start? Join us for this informative event that will answer all your questions! 


Bringing a fresh, inspirational voice to the backyard chicken keeping community, educator Dalia Monterroso presents an inclusive and intuitive guide to raising your own flock, no matter where you are or what resources you have. Readers from all income levels and backgrounds will learn mindful, low-cost, and environmentally friendly ways to raise baby chicks, design a chicken coop, keep chickens healthy naturally, and more. They may even find a little peace along the way.
Drawing from her own experience as the child of Guatemalan immigrants, Monterroso celebrates how chicken-keeping has been practiced around the world and offers an opportunity for everyone to connect with nature and, consequently, our common history as humans.

“The real value of this book lies in the author’s core philosophy of being mindful about every aspect of raising chickens... A practical
ode to trusting your instincts and loving your chickens.” - Library Journal
