Poultry Unplugged: Successful free-ranging almost anywhere Raising birds on pasture is better for their health and overall well-being. But how can you protect your birds from predators? What's the best way to house and feed them? What challenges might you encounter with breeding your birds? The author of Pure Poultry: Living well with heritage chickens, turkeys and ducks offers her perspective from 11 years of free-ranging chickens, turkeys and ducks in a predator-rich area of the Olympic Mountain foothills. There will be plenty of time for your questions, and a handout with tips for getting started with poultry is included.
