Backyard Chickens "Cluckinar" - County of San Diego

 Registration is closed for this event
Curious how chickens can improve the quality of your soil, reduce waste, and help save you money? Learn about raising backyard chickens during this online webinar!

Join Solana Center for this free 1-hour webinar where you will learn the basics and many benefits of raising chickens at home. Chickens have a lot to offer: Not only do they produce beautiful, high-quality eggs and protect your garden from pests, they also assist in keeping waste out of the landfill by eating your food scraps! Plus, they are fun pets and are guaranteed to make you smile. Now that’s something to cluck about!

We will be joined by Nancy Riegler of Oasis Camel Dairy in Ramona, who has raised chickens and poultry alongside her camels and other livestock for 25 years.

This webinar will be held using Zoom, so please note that you will need to have the Zoom application installed on your device (computer, smartphone, or tablet) to attend and participate. You will receive an email with the link and password to join on the day before the webinar occurs.

This webinar is funded by the County of San Diego and is intended for residents of unincorporated County. Anyone may attend, however, the webinar recording will be available for 7 days after the live presentation to unincorporated County residents only.

Help us get the word out to other unincorporated residents! You'll be entered to win a raffle drawing for every resident you get to attend the webinar. If you get someone to register, email kelsea@solanacenter.org and we'll enter a raffle entry for you.

  • Local regulations for keeping backyard chickens
