The Grange Supply has announced its 2012 Chick Days, a program advertised as focusing on healthy starts for the many baby animals that often help herald the start of spring.
The 2012 Chick Days will provide poultry raising resources to the Greater Seattle and Issaquah communities March 16-18. The Grange believes that with many people looking for ways to save on food costs and control their food choices, raising chickens provides a healthy and educational alternative.

“Raising backyard poultry is once again popular as more and more people commit to a sustainable lifestyle, especially in our area,” said Michelle Boman, operations manager for The Grange Supply. “Chicken owners know their eggs are fresh and can be confident in the treatment of their flock. Raising poultry is a fun and rewarding activity for the whole family.”
To kick off Chick Days, The Grange Supply will have a chick seminar all about raising chickens at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. March 17. Reservations are needed. Go to www.grangesupply.com or call 392-6469.
Throughout the duration of Chick Days, The Grange Supply will offer advice and guidance about how to raise baby chickens from freshly hatched chicks through laying, including details about proper nutrition to provide the best eggs. During the Great Starts promotion, Purina dealers will provide special cost-savings on Purina-brand feeds. Live chicks will be available at the store through May.
“Although keeping chickens does not have to be an expensive or difficult hobby, it does require a certain knowledge,” Boman said, adding Chick Days coupled with the Great Starts promotion are designed to demonstrate how easy it is to raise chickens for eggs, meat or pets.
