Backyard poultry flocks have gained tremendous popularity in recent years. Many folks have come to enjoy fresh eggs each morning or even having fresh chicken at mealtime. Although backyard flocks are convenient, there is a certain degree of responsibility associated with keeping the flock happy and healthy.

N.C. Cooperative Extension, Cherokee County Center has planned a program entitled “Backyard Poultry Symposium” to be held Tuesday, October 20th, 2020, at the Extension Educational Classroom, 699 Connahetta St., Murphy. This program was originally scheduled for this past May, but was postponed due to the pandemic. Depending on what meeting rules and guidelines are in place at the time of the program, seating could be limited.

The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will cover various poultry related topics such as poultry health and safety, breeds, diseases, management of the backyard flock and more. Lauren Greene, Area Specialized Agent for Poultry, will be leading the class.

There is a $10 fee for this class, seating is limited and pre-registration is required. The deadline for registration is Monday, October 19th.
