Two events are available this month for anyone interested in learning about raising poultry.

Tales from the Coop: Inspiration and Advice for Raising Backyard Poultry on Monday, Feb. 9: Four local poultry enthusiasts (all either current or former employees of the Mount Vernon Library) will share practical advice and alternative ideas about keeping chickens, ducks, and quail in your backyard. Each has designed and built their own custom coops and raised their poultry from a variety of sources, including mail-order and incubating eggs. 6:30 p.m. at the Mount Vernon Library Reference Room. For more information, contact the library’s Adult Programming Coordinator Mike Bonacci at (360) 336-6209, or see 0017

Interested in filling your freezer with homegrown chicken? Learn where to buy the chicks, what and how much to feed, where to house the birds, and how to keep them healthy. Sponsored by the Friends of the Deming Library.  11 a.m. to noon. Deming Library, 5044 Mt. Baker Highway. Call (360) 305-3600.
