    Hi There!

    I'm writing from Lakewood, Ohio an urban suburb of Cleveland. Our city has just approved a pilot program for hen keeping (very exciting!!) one stipulation of the permit application is the completion of a hen keeping class and certification. Is there an online class anyone can recommend or anyone in the Cleveland area that holds a certification course?? Thanks Much!

    I think I’d enlist the help of your county extension agent. You can find them in the phone book under county government if you still know what a phone book is, or find them online like most people do. That’s a bit of an odd request but a good agent should be able to help you. Hopefully you have a good agent.

    When Fayetteville Arkansas approved chickens in the city limits the county extension agent arranged a seminar where experts spoke about what is involved in keeping chickens. It was pretty basic and tailored to the laws Fayetteville passed. I think the agent here is pretty good.

    Good luck!
