Got backyard chickens? Want answers to your questions about them? CFAES Extension educator Tim McDermott, who holds a DVM degree, has created the Backyard Poultry Production website, featuring links to archived and upcoming chicken-related webinars, CFAES fact sheets, a list of Ohio veterinarians who see poultry, and more.

McDermott, who’s based in mostly urban Franklin County, the home of Columbus and Ohio State, says on the new website that he’s seeing more and more people raising chickens for family food security—and likewise is getting more and more calls from people with questions about them.
