    I spoke to the county extension agent's office and learned there will be a class taught on Saturday, April 4, in the Fayetteville Arkansas Public Library from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm. The topics are Breeds, Housing, and Diseases. I understand it is aimed at the small flock owners, not the big commercial boys. There should be some announcements coming out in the local newspapers. No advanced registration required. I plan to be there.

    Cheri,
    I think there will be a few from BYC.

    I'm going to bump this one more time in case somebody needs a reminder. Hopefully there will be four or five BYC'ers there.

    Please take notes and post it
    Can you ask if they do one on free range chickens and turkeys?
    I can't go today but I will try if they do it again.

    I doubt if I will post much on this directly, but will if anything I consider "significant" comes out of it. Mostly I intend to use it to reply to specific questions. Three hours of classes ia a lot to post.

    Hi! It looks like I'm about 2 years late in developing my interest in chickens here in Fayetteville. I'd really like to try some in my backyard, but I'm having trouble finding any local information, specifically on having chickens and fully obeying the city code. Can you direct me to any local resources?

    Thanks
