University of Maine Cooperative Extension will offer a free online overview of raising backyard poultry on May 11 from 5:30–7:30 p.m.
Designed for the beginning or prospective backyard and small-scale poultry producers, the overview will provide information on proper housing, health, and nutrition needs; varieties of waterers and lighting options; and different poultry breeds for meat and egg production. UMaine Extension livestock specialist Colt Knight will lead the program.
