Learn the basics of raising or keeping your own flock of chickens in your backyard.

In this class, learn the best age to start your own flock and each stage’s requirements from diet and husbandry to the chickens’ health and happiness.

We'll discuss the basics of incubating, hatching, and raising your own chicks, properly introducing them to their full-time coop, or existing flock. Learn how many chickens are needed to feed your family, the various breeds available, and which are a best fit for your backyard.

About the branch

The Gates Mills Branch became a part of the Cuyahoga County Public Library system in 1948. At the time, the branch operated out of the Southwick House, a former residence that was converted into a historic site. The branch’s current home is a 3,500-square-foot building that is the cornerstone of the Gates Mills downtown revitalization.
