BREMERTON, Wash. – WSU Extension’s Regional Small Farms team will host “Breeding, Incubating and Hatching Your Own Flock,” for anyone raising egg-laying chickens on their farm or in their backyard.
This workshop is part of their Poultry Education Series offered throughout Jefferson, Kitsap, and Clallam counties. The class is Tuesday, October 1, from 5:30-8:30 PM at the Norm Dicks Government Building in Bremerton.
