That’s me in the picture, with the chicken tee shirt and some of my girls. My good friend, Emily Katt, and I will be offering a FREE henkeeping class this coming Saturday, March 24th, at Mize Farm and Garden Center, Johnson City store, located at Watauga and State of Franklin Ave. The class will run from 10-11:30 AM and will cover all aspects of taking care of your backyard hens- we’ll cover feed, equipment, breeds, housing and many other topics that will help you become responsible pet owners. We’ll also have a nifty door prize again so don’t miss the fun!
As an aside… Emily and I are meeting tomorrow morning with the city’s new Development Services Director to discuss our proposals for adapting the current city code to allow those of us that want chickens to be allowed to legally have them. The group we formed back in July of last year, is called C.O.O.P. That stands for ‘Chickens On Our Property’. (Pretty catchy name, don’t ‘cha think?) I’ll update readers of this blog as to the outcome of this meeting, as well as how you can help COOP’s voice be heard when it comes time to present our case again to the city council. Stay tuned!
