Science Center Presentation: Urban Chickens
5050 Oakland Ave
St. Louis, MO 63110
Backyard chickens are becoming popular pets in urban areas and St. Louis is one of the cities leading the way. You’re invited to learn more from Dr. Patrick Biggs, flock nutritionist at Purina Animal Nutrition, who will give a special presentation on the basics of raising backyard chickens at the GROW gallery.
In addition to the special presentation on June 22, GROW hosts free daily discussions called Chicken Chats to introduce visitors to their flock. Topics covered include how to keep predators out of chicken coops, chicken anatomy, pecking order, nutrition and more.
