    If anyone is interested Coursera is offering a free online MOOC dealing with chicken behavior and health. It is scheduled to start April 5. I think it is Coursera.org but it could be .edu. It looks really interesting. I have taken a couple of classes from there and they are usually really fun and informative.:)

    Tanks for posting the link. My computer bit the dust and I am using my phone now. I haven't figured out all of the tricks with it yet.

    Is it free? Or does it cost $50? I signed up for free, and it says it costs $49. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the website... Lol I hope it's free!!

    I signed up for free. If you do the signature track that is what costs.

    The class is scheduled to begin this Friday, April 3, and lasts 6 weeks. There are 5 weeks of material to complete in that time, so you can go at your own pace and if you miss the start date there's time to catch up. I'm incredibly excited about it!
