Raising Urban Chickens

  • Backyard Growers 271 Main St Gloucester, MA 01930 (map)

Our long awaited chicken workshop is here! Join Backyard Growers and local chicken farmer Jess Araneo as we discuss these fine birds. From getting started, to meeting city standards, to choosing the right ladies for your flock- we're excited to answer all your burning questions and leave you ready to start, improve or expand your backyard flock! We'll spend just over an hour discussing the ins and outs of chicken raising, then leave time to meet a bird or two and answer all your questions. Join us!

Jess is resident in Rowley, MA where she raises over 40 chickens and 20 ducks on less than an acre. She sells eggs from her chickens and ducks out of a farm stand at her house.
