Learning About Native Plants with Sylvia

This weekend Sylvia held a wonderful event for the LA Urban Chicken Enthusiasts.  She presented information about how to created a Certified Wildlife Habitat in her West Side home.  She first removed her grass, added a dry river bed and plants a wide a array of plants and developed a site that included all the elements to support wildlife, water, shelter, forage and a place to raise their young.

 She also told us how she designed her coop and even arranged for us to go to her daughter's house to see their coop.  It was Sylvia's granddaughter that had thought it would be a great idea for her to have chickens.  Sylvia is no stranger to chickens and she had a picture of her with chickens as a little girl.

We had a bleach foot bath to decontaminte shoes before attendees walked around Sylvia's yard and asked for anyone with chickens to have fresh clothes to help with biosecurity to prevent the inadvertent transmission of infections.

Thank you, Sylvia, again for such a well organized event.
