'SAY NO TO MAIL ORDER CHICKS'
Pittsfield, 2 p.m.
Berkshire Humane Society's third event in its 2017 Coffee Hour Speaking Series is titled "Say 'No' to Mail Order Chicks: The Challenges of Urban Chicken Keeping" with Rachael Gordon, director of Morning's Song Rooster Rescue and Co-founder of Ox N’ Yoke Farm Animal Sanctuary. As backyard poultry keeping has seen a rise in popularity in recent years, the challenges of proper chicken husbandry have led to an exponential rise in unwanted and abandoned birds. Gordon will discuss proper methods of raising chickens on a small scale and explain the connection between backyard birds, purchased via mail order or from "Chick Days" and industrialized chicken farm abuse. Reservations aren’t necessary, but to save your spot, call Mary at 413-447-7878, ext. 128.
