Backyard Chicken Keeping Workshop


This workshop is designed to go over the basics of preparing for, caring for, and troubleshooting a small flock of backyard laying hens. It covers coop construction, basic chicken health and nutrition, and care techniques that don’t require too much time or money.

About the Instructor

Since 2009 Duncan Martin has built over 120 backyard chicken coops across the Lower Mainland and beyond. This has led to countless backyard chicken classes, workshops, and demos, as well as an ever-growing list of lobbying efforts to get laying hens legalized in nearby municipalities. When not building coops Duncan Martin designs and installs solar power systems for the Vancouver Renewable Energy Co-op.
