Backyard Poultry program set Oct. 27 in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO — The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Bexar County will present a beginner’s Backyard Poultry program called “Introduction to City Chickens” from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Oct. 27 at West Feed Store, 7730 Dove Drive, San Antonio.

“Keeping chickens in the city can be fun and rewarding,” said Bryan Davis, AgriLife Extension agent, Bexar County. “This program will cover the basics of how to keep and care for laying hens — from designing a coop to what to feed them.”
