Urban Chicken Keeping Class is available for signup

Class Info

Join us at The Pursuit Supply Company in learning about raising chickens in our urban environment. Our resident chicken expert Kelli Wefenstette will teach you the basics of getting started raising chickens and collecting eggs.

Imagine a most wild and free morning beginning with a quiet stroll to the backyard for breakfast, returning with a soft array of freshly laid eggs. Learn how to transform your urban oasis into a mini-farm by adding a small flock of chickens.

In this class, Dabblers will learn more than you ever wanted to know about chickens: breeds, temperaments, suggestions for cold-hardy Chicago fowl, where to find 'em, how to feed 'em, and best practices for keeping your neighbors happy. Students will also discuss creating an end of life plan for your birds whether they go to a literal farm or the proverbial farm. We'll address all your questions from pest control to organics to continued care.

No roosters required. You will leave with all the information you need to go straight home and build a coop!
