Need advice on raising backyard chickens sustainably? Lafayette resident, Papa John Kiefer, is our local go-to-expert. He’s been at it for nearly 50 years (yep, he started way before chickens were hip to raise!)
He is an excellent teacher. In the past five years alone, he has educated over 800 people locally and numerous people across the world. Cities such as Lafayette, Moraga and Hayward have benefited from his advice reviewing their city code for raising small backyard animals.
Papa John will again, offer workshops on “How to Raise Your Own Chickens.” Topics will include raising young chicks, laying hen maintenance, and sustainable coop construction, which is unique in offering no odor and no cleaning.
Free workshop. Reservations are required. Directions provided upon registration.
