RESCHEDULED Backyard and Small Flock Poultry Workshop

SAINT PETER, Minn-- Minnesota's April blizzard forced the postponement of the poultry workshop scheduled in St. Peter, Minnesota last Saturday.  The event has been rescheduled for Saturday, April 28. 

Have you ever considered owning your own backyard chickens? Or do you already have a small flock and want to learn more about how to care for your feathered friends? Then join University of Minnesota Educators and Specialist for a day of poultry education on April 28th in St Peter, Minnesota.

Raising poultry on a small scale is gaining in popularity throughout all parts of Minnesota, but without access to education, many home producers are left scrambling to find answers to their questions. The Backyard and Small Flocks Workshop is designed to help start answering some of those questions.

The workshop will cover a range of poultry related topics including chicken breeds, poultry regulatory issues, poultry husbandry and nutrition, biosecurity, issues with raising poultry, and baby chicks. Whether you consider yourself a novice or an expert chicken raiser, this workshop will have something for you.

The workshop will be held on April 28th at the Governor’s Room in the St Peter Community Center, 600 South 5th Street, Saint Peter, MN 56082. The program runs from 10:00 AM to 3:30 PM with registration starting at 9:30 AM.

If you are interested in attending the event please pre-register at least one week in advance. You may register by contacting Jason Ertl, Local Extension Educator at (507) 934-7828 or via email at
