Tractor Supply Co. at 221 E Highway 246 in Buellton will host a “backyard poultry event” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 8, when customers can engage in a number of activities centered around learning how to care for and manage an at-home flock.
"The popularity of raising backyard poultry has continued to grow year after year, and it has a lot to do with the convenience of getting fresh eggs right from your own backyard," said John Wallace, store manager.
"Our goal is to ensure that anyone who's interested in raising a backyard flock has the resources and information needed to do so," he said.
Customers learn about basic poultry nutrition, enroll in Backyard Poultry 101 and participate in pet adoptions.
Wallace said the Tractor Supply store carries all items needed for a backyard flock, including starter kits, feeders, bedding, heat bulbs and lamps and coops, with an expanded selection available on TractorSupply.com.
