Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy Chicken Day at the Vallican Whole Community Centre in the Slocan Valley. The event takes place on February 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 and a potluck lunch will be served.

Back by popular demand, Chicken Day is for anyone interested in learning how to raise chickens for their own use or for sale.

Experts in small-scale poultry production will explain everything you need to know. Topics include ordering and raising chicks, nutrition, equipment for indoor and pasture production and protection, preparing to process and more.

This year there will be a session on scaling up from a small flock to larger production, and will include a panel of local and visiting experts.

Raising chickens can help small farmers build profits and soil fertility. Poultry processed in a licensed abattoir can be sold in stores and restaurants as well as at the farm gate.

This event is sponsored by Columbia Basin Trust and Passmore Pluckers, the West Kootenay’s poultry abattoir.
