What You’ll Do
A backyard chicken coop gives a whole new meaning to “locally-sourced eggs.” This approximately two-hour workshop will set you on your way to that eco-conscious omelet. Mill Valley Chickens’ owner Leslie Citroen discusses chicken care, coop design, and other important concepts for maintaining a happy chicken family.
Meet the Flock
After showing some coop designs, Leslie explains how to select a chicken breed and raise chicks and pullets.
Learn Coop-Keeping Secrets
The workshop covers additional topics, including information about chicken breeds, how to maintain coop hygiene and health, zoning laws, what to feed chickens, and how to place a decoy egg so chickens lay their own properly.
Prepare for Future Poultry
You’ll leave with a decoy egg and ideas on starting your own backyard chicken coop.

Though she now proudly calls herself a chicken pusher, Leslie Citroen didn’t plan on becoming an expert on eggs and feathers. She probably also didn’t imagine being featured on CBS’ Eye On The Bay, or appearing on the British television show Super Tiny Animals. No, Leslie originally bought some chickens as pets for her children—but a few birds led to a lot, and the Citroens were soon selling hand-raised heritage chicks and pullets. Mill Valley Chickens was born, or more appropriately, hatched.
