Got Chickens? Mini-seminar for Adults for Starting Your Own Backyard Flock 11/15/2014 at 2:00 PM
The keeping of backyard poultry is an activity that has skyrocketed in recent years. Unfortunately, many
new poultry owners are lacking important information and don’t even know it, until a problem arises. The
few stores where people buy their birds and supplies are only interested in the sale, not in the daily
maintenance of the birds. Because they are essentially livestock, chickens are very easy to get, but not as
easy to keep, because their care does not follow the familiar guidelines of dogs, cats, or even small animals
that most people are familiar with today. The rise in suburban flocks requires sources of information that are
sometimes hard to come by.
While there are many websites and books available today, even the most knowledgeable flock owners will
tell you that experience is the best teacher. However, there can be many mistakes made on the way to
gaining that experience, especially if new owners don’t know where to turn to ask questions. In addition,
when searching for answers on the Internet, it can be hard for new owners to identify legitimate sources and
solutions vs. spurious information.
This mini-seminar seeks to address these, and many other issues that new flock owners may face, and
provides reliable sources for future questions. Topics include care and feeding; illnesses; proper coop size
and placement; predator control; hatching chicks; introduction of new birds; proper handling; attending
poultry shows; biosecurity; and much more.
Mary Hussey, a member of the Sussex County Poultry Fanciers, will lead this discussion on the advantages
and responsibilities of raising chickens.
The two-hour program, intended for adults only, includes a Prezi, and participants receive a list of print and
Internet source materials. Live birds will be on hand for demonstration.
Friends of the Washington Twp. Public Library Movie Night - Wednesday, 11/19/2014 at 7:00 PM
This movie is the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came
together to form the iconic 1960s rock group, The Four Seasons. Based on a hit Broadway show, it
combines a terrific dramatic story with great music. Snacks will be available courtesy of the Friends.
Lunch n Learn - Topic to be announced - Monday, 11/24/14 at noon
College Financing - Tuesday, 11/25/2014 at 7:00 PM
This seminar, presented by Al Newell and associates, will discuss how parents of college-bound high school
juniors and seniors can receive $2,500 to $25,000 per year that most don’t even know about. The seminar
will cover the following topics – What some middle-class and upper-middle class parents pay close to
nothing for their children’s college education, how to double or triple eligibility for financial aid, how to pick
the college that will give the most free money, less loans, how to get the maximum amount of money from
each school, little known ways to position one’s assets, maximizing the aid one would get and finally, how to
fill out complicated application forms accurately to avoid costly mistakes.
