Northern Gardening: Keeping chickens

Tending a flock of chickens is a popular pastime in Cook County and a common complement to a home garden or homesteading effort. Join local experienced chicken owners to learn all the basics of selecting breeds, crafting a coop, feeding and caring for chickens, and protecting your flock. Learn the differences in caring for layers and meat birds, and how a flock can integrate into the rest of your gardening world. Join hosts Sarah Waddle, and Joan Farnam, and guests Leanne Avery, Melinda Spinler, Olya Wright, and Naomi Tracy-Hegg for this egg-citing edition of Northern Gardening!

Northern Gardening airs the second Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. and is rebroadcast the following Saturday at 6 a.m. All previously-aired programs are archived on our website, to listen to at any time.
