A Backyard Poultry Certification Course with 6 modules was created by Franklin County’s Ag & Natural Resources Educator (Tim McDermott) as a self-paced course to learn about husbandry, nutrition, biosecurity, egg production, and disease prevention in backyard poultry. Attached is a flyer with a QR code (also below) to access the course which costs $25 (Super cheap!) It can also be accessed at go.osu.edu/chicken or you can share the page link on Growing Franklin HERE
Some uses for your county client-residents:
- It makes a great holiday gift for that hard to buy person.
- You can share this if you have a city or municipality in your county that requires a certificate to keep backyard poultry.
- You have a 4H kiddo or county resident who wants to keep poultry but does not know where to start.
- You have a city or municipality that is considering an ordinance and needs some guidance.
