In this episode of Mother Earth News and Friends, we discuss the considerations you need to take when keeping chickens during the colder months including diet, shelter, and choosing cold weather breeds.
Joining Charlotte for this conversation is Jeannette Beranger and Patricia Foreman (Pat).
Jeannette is the Senior Program Manager for The Livestock Conservancy. She uses her knowledge to plan and implement conservation programs, conduct field research, and advise farmers in their endeavors with rare breeds. She is the co-author of the best-selling book “An Introduction to Heritage Breeds.”
Pat is a sustainable agriculture author, local foods activist, and popular speaker. She (and her co-presenter, chicken celebrity Oprah Hen-Free) has presented workshops and book signings at major national festivals and conferences across the United States. She is the author of City Chicks. To help “Chick Start America,” she developed the Backyard Chicken Keeper Certification course. Foreman graduated from Purdue University with degrees in animal science and pharmacy. She has a master’s of public affairs from Indiana University’s Graduate School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
