The Chicken Man.

My husband IS The Chicken Man.

He might not appreciate that name, and I didn’t pre-authorize this name with him, however, it’s true.

He is The Chicken Man.  At least he will be on the days he’s teaching the Raising Backyard Chickens Class.

The Chicken Man is the one to know for all things Chicken:

1.  He knows the names of all the types.

2.  He knows which ones are hardy enough to have in Colorado.

3.  He knows which ones you should get for the best (and most) eggs.

4.  He knows the best chickens to get for meat.

5.  He knows how to raise them from babies.

6.  He knows how to get them to make babies.

7.  He knows what they should eat.

8.  He knows what medicine they need.

9.  He knows how to protect them from predators.

10.  He knows how to build chicken coops.

11.  He knows how to build chicken bunkers.

12.  He knows how you can build your own chicken coop.

13.  He knows how to clean the poop.

14.  He knows how to make compost out of the poop.

15.  He knows how to slaughter them.

16.  He knows how to cook them.

17.  He knows how to hold them.

18.  He knows how to cure them from what ails them.

19.  He knows the best places to buy them.

20.  He Is The Chicken Man.

And, he wants YOU in his class.

You don’t want to disappoint The Chicken Man.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Then I was an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life. Now, after moving to the country, I have embarked on life as a rural farmgirl, complete with my husband, the Animal Whisperer, man of exceptional knowledge and patience, two boys who are louder than my sister and I ever were, a herd of milking goats, and a flock of egg-laying chickens. Coyotes, mice, country dogs and prairie dogs are frequent visitors. Just 45 minutes north is Colorado Springs, the setting for our first six years in the goat world. Our family. Our city friends. Our introduction to cheesemaking. But we...and our growing farm and soon-to-be creamery...have set up shop down off of Highway 115 in Penrose, Colorado.

    I LOVE THIS! I already have chickens, but this should be a successful class for you! Are you aware of the Take a Peak Chicken Coop tour around the end of April? It would be an awesome, subtle promotion for you and “The Chicken Man!” I think it will be two days this year.
