Chooks in my back yard

Do you want to know about keeping chooks in your back yard, but don’t know who to ask?
Pipers Creek Landcare, with specialist assistance from Kyneton District Poultry Club, will conduct a chook workshop with an emphasis on family fun for new people to the area both on rural blocks and in town.
Talk one-on-one to enthusiastic, practical people about the joys of raising chickens on a small scale in your back yard on topics such as ‘building a fox proof chook house’, ‘chooks as children’s pets’, ‘chooks in sustainable gardening’ and ‘how to wash a show chook’.
The best laying and table birds of different breeds will be on display from the hybrid ‘egg machines’ to the speckled, spangled and beautiful ‘designer’ breeds. Some will be for sale at the Poultry Club Auction on Sunday April 7 at the Kyneton Showgrounds.
Chooks In My Backyard will be held on Sunday March 24 at the Kyneton Showgrounds from 11.30am with a sausage sizzle lunch available about noon. A nominal cost of $5 per person or $10 per family will apply and include a copy of The Chook Book, an excellent 70-page manual on all aspects of poultry production.
Enquiries and bookings can be made at or 0448 401 372 and RSVP would be appreciated for catering purposes by March 20.
