The trend of raising backyard chickens is growing. People are becoming more interested in where their food comes from, and want to ensure access to quality eggs and chicken, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Guelph, along with other municipalities in Canada, approves the growing of chickens however many have questions about welfare, environment, winter management, manure management, and maintaining good health of their birds.
The Poultry Industry Council’s webinar along with Al Dam, OMAFRA’s Poultry Specialist, addressed these questions, as well as covering the basics of chick care, egg quality, feed and nutrition, and disease management.
