We were very happy to collaborate recently with Marathon County UW-Extension on a program at MCPL Wausau about chickens!
Heather Schlesser, dairy and livestock agent with Extension, provided our audience with a primer on all that's involved with raising a clutch of chickens - the variety of breeds, diet, shelter, diseases to keep an eye out for and more!
If you missed the June 9 program, you can watch the whole program below. Or, if you'd like to catch the program in person, Heather will present similar programs Sept. 3 at the MCPL Athens branch and Sept. 23 in Marathon City.
A very special thanks to Heather for sharing her knowledge of chickens with those who came to the program. And one fun fact that may entice you into watching the video: Chickens are the closest living relative on Earth to the late, great T. Rex dinosaur!
