    I couldn't figure out which section to post this thread in... hope it's ok!

    I'm having a backyard chicken garden party tomorrow, with a bunch of friends who either have chickens or want to start. They are bringing friends of their own, too. I just realized it would be a good idea to have literature available for them to take home with them. I printed the BYC pamphlet on caring for chicks, but I'd love one on general chicken care, and one on factory farms/egg production.

    Anyone know of a good source where I can print them out tonight?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks! Both resources are awesome, and I'll definitely fall back on them if I don't come up with something more concise tonight. I was hoping to find something like a tri-fold pamphlet. (I'm being very high-maintenance, aren't I?) [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks! It has just come together, since so many of my friends have expressed interest in starting their own little suburban flocks. [​IMG]
    We're having LOTS of deviled eggs (from my girls!!), pasta salad, veggies and dip, ice tea, and cookies. I love having an excuse to get the yard looking nice! And when the chickens are the source of entertainment for the party guests, there's way less stress on me!

    The timing is also good because they can meet my adults as well as the 2 new 10-day-old chicks, and get a sense for multiple stages in the chicken steward experience.

    Hope some people steal this idea and run with it! The more backyard flocks we have, the fewer factory farms we'll have!!
