Chickens of Colorado!

Saturday, February 12, 2022

Join Lafayette Open Space and Jax Farm and Ranch to explore our state’s wild chickens AND how to raise domestic chickens at home.   

Colorado is home to 15 species of “wild chickens” .or, stated more scientifically, birds in the family Galliformes!  More and more people are raising chickens in their backyards for the eggs and to better understand how food gets to our tables!   JAX and Lafayette Open Space offer you the opportunity to learn about all of these wild chickens of Colorado AND how to raise domestic chickens in your own backyard. 

This program is for anyone, especially for families who’d like to consider raising chickens.  We’ll start with a short slide show to familiarize ourselves with all those wild chickens, including grouse, quail, turkeys and even Chukars (yes, Chukars!).  Then we’ll see JAX’s chicks and learn about all the in’s and out’s of raising your own chickens.  Space is limited for this special, hands-on program and RSVPs are required.
