Hey folks! Not so keen on a picture with Santa?  How about a picture with a Holiday Hen?
This Tuesday (December 3) is the December backyard chicken meetup at Relish in Somerville, and they’re having a holiday party!  Come snap some  holiday pictures with a few of your favorite adorable YBC Chicken Ambassadors, drink eggnog (and whatever other beverages folks would like to contribute), eat some T-day leftovers and other potluck grub, and mix and mingle with other backyard chicken enthusiasts.
The party will be happening from 7-10pm at Relish: Center for Urban Agriculture in Union Square (down the alley behind The Independent restaurant).  BYOB/food/friends/kids… just please don’t bring your own chickens without checking in with Krysti, the “Chickeness.” The event is FREE and the Relish registration page is here. (Please note that the chickens will not likely be wearing Santa suits ;-))

On Thursday, May 31st, City Hall hosted Somerville resident Khrysti Smyth, also known as the Chickeness.  Khrysti talked to interested staff about urban chicken keeping and let people meet her “ambassador” chickens, Fleur and Lucifer. Her talk is part of a larger educational series aimed at sharing local knowledge about urban agriculture in the city.  Khrysti teaches her Urban Poultry 101 class throughout the metro Boston region.  For more hen info, check out her blog (linked above).
