Chicks in the City Symposium

Chicks in the City Symposium at Oakhurst Church in Decatur

Local. Farm-to-table. Organic. Backyard chicken coop. Yes.

The local food movement continues to snowball, and as the farm-to-table idea spreads from restaurants to the home, urban poultry-keeping has emerged as a supplement to that backyard garden. So if your building's pet fees have forestalled your dream to own that pug, perhaps you should think about getting friendly with a chick.

On Feb. 2, the Wylde Center is presenting the Chicks in the City Symposium at the Oakhurst Church in Decatur. With classes and demonstrations led by local chicken gurus, you can learn how to start up and maintain your very own backyard flock in Atlanta.

The event will run from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and will cover the following topics:

- Breeds of Chickens
- Chicken Chores
- Chicken Health and Wellness
- The Best Coop for Your Space
- Baby Chicks Basics of Incubation and Care

The Wylde Center is an organization committed to preserving greenspace in the area and to educating community members about sustainability. Cost for the event is $50 for Wylde Center members, and $60 for nonmembers. Registration is limited to the first 150 registrants. To register, visit the Chicks in the City page at
