Did you know that egg production is a sign of backyard chicken health? It’s true; the healthier the flock, the better the egg production (and the tastier the eggs!).
This week, February 24-March 2, is Bird Health Awareness Week, and the USDA’s Animal Plant Health and Inspection Service (APHIS) is presenting its free “Growing Chicks Into Healthy Chickens: Getting Ready for Spring” webinar this Thursday, February 28th at 2:00 pm EST.
Whether you’re considering starting a flock for the first time, are an experienced keeper, or a backyard egg connoissuer, check out the webinar, or the USDA Bird Health Awareness Week blog post, for great tips on backyard flock heath and safety. Spring’s just around the corner and it’s time to get to know your food!
And, of course, check out Eggzy.net to find or list your fresh backyard eggs and track your flock’s production.
