I am preparing to teach a class on keeping backyard chickens. I plan to cover breed selection, care of baby chicks, equipment needed, local chicken laws and ordinances, housing your flock, and basics of care and feeding. I would love any advice or information you learned starting out that you found really helpful. Also, what information did you want to know and have trouble finding? Newbies, what questions/concerns are you dealing with? Some guy is coming all the way from California to take the class, so I would like to make it worth his trip.
