Questions are encouraged in this lecture-based class and you will leave with the knowledge you need to start raising chickens in your own backyard.
COST: $40 or $30 for Seattle Tilth members. Advance registration required."
"Rhode Island Red's are sweet, good laying chickens, but I have heard better reviews from Araucana's. These are brown chicken's who are the friendliest chicken on the list. They lay green, turquoise, and blue eggs. Even though the chicken's are skinnier than normal, they love to be held and lay normal-sized eggs."
