Top Ten Backyard Poultry Diseases Webinar Recording

There has been a resurgence of people who wish to raise their own food for personal and family food security, both with produce and with poultry.  I am increasingly getting asked about backyard poultry keeping so I wanted to put a resource together to assist you in getting the knowledge you need for safe, healthy and productive backyard poultry keeping.  Here is the second webinar to support backyard poultry keeping:  Top Ten Diseases of Backyard Poultry

FIRST THING:  Find out the regulations in your city or municipality that governs the keeping of backyard poultry and follow those rules carefully. 

 

Here is the recorded Top Ten Backyard Poultry Diseases class.

 

Below is a Backyard Poultry Production Webinar Recording plus some helpful links:

We also have a number of Fact Sheets hosted on Ohioline to support poultry keeping:

There is also a fact sheet on Selling Eggs in Ohio: Marketing and Regulations that details safe handling, washing and storage of eggs.

If you need help finding a Veterinarian that sees poultry,  we have a list plus a map to assist you with that.
