Chicken Talk

Don't forget to come to Mar's Cafe (2318 University Ave Des Moines) at 7pm tonight. Come meet others interested in raising chickens and ask questions of those who have raised chickens in town before.


  1. I should come to the meeting as well
    I raised or helped raise chickens
    all my life. First on parents farm
    and then for their grocery business.
    We had chickens and Guinias here is
    Harvey for several years. We found out the had to be penned to keep the
    hawks from devouring them. We had
    bantam as well. The bantams sat on the Guinias eggs and when they hatched they lived the life of bantam
    instead of guinias. Guinias are huge
    birds and bantams are tiny. Very much fun. We finally gave what we had left away.

  2. I'm sorry you couldn't be there, but don't worry I plan on using your wealth of information!
