Sunday April 28th -  Chicken Crawl 10 am – 12 noon

Visit the chicken coops, check out coop designs and learn about keeping chickens from your neighbours!  Drop by Chicken Crawl headquarters at the Library and pick up a map or print the map attached at the bottom of this page.  Then visit any of our 6 local chicken and duck coops.  You'll likely also see some electric fences,  bat and bee houses, goats and geese, compost bins, hugelkulturs and some lovely gardens along the way.

Thinking of getting chickens or ducks?   Read this valuable reference guide to raising chickens in Rossland,  written by Judy Kerby who has raised chickens in Rossland for at least the last 20 years.  Look for 'Helpful notes backyard chickens" attached at the bottom of this page.
