Announcing new, Purina® Flock Talks™!

We have strived to be your educational partner for all things flock for many years through our chick focused events. In 2018, we’re taking our local chicken events to new heights with a new name, new information and a strong feeding program.

Here’s what you need to know about Purina® Flock Talks™: Our local chicken-keeping workshops will now be known as Purina® Flock Talks™.
