WSU extension to bring Poultry Education class to Bremerton

Class will be held October 1, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Norm Dicks Government Center

Washington State University’s Extension Regional Small Farms team will be hosting the Breeding, Incubating and Hatching Your Own Flock event Tuesday, Oct. 1, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Norm Dicks Government Center in Bremerton.

The class is part of their Poultry Education series offered throughout Kitsap, Jefferson and Clallam counties. The classes are intended for anyone raising egg-laying chickens on their farm or in their backyard.

“These classes are perfect for anyone wanting to learn more or deepen their knowledge about raising egg-laying chickens,” WSU’s Regional Small Farms Coordinator Kellie Henwood said. “This is the best opportunity to learn from experienced farmers and teachers.”

In the third class of the series, Lisa Van Horn of Peninsula Poultry Breeders Network and WillowCroft Farm will be teaching how to set up a small-scale breeding program, manage a breeding flock, select the best breeders, details of incubation, what to look for when purchasing an incubator, how to utilize a broody hen to raise chicks, and troubleshoot any questions or challenges.

The cost of the workshop is $25 per person. Youth enrolled in 4H or FFA will get in free with an attending adult. Scholarships are available and pre-registration is required. To register, visit poultryclass3.brownpapertickets.com.
