Event Navigation

On Saturday, April 27, from 1 to 3 p.m., Hunter’s Home will host a workshop to teach historical techniques about raising chicken breeds, some dating back centuries, that lived in Indian Territory in the 1840s and 1850s. This workshop will cover the background history of several chicken breeds that are readily available, where to find them, and how to raise them using historical techniques.

Did you know today you can raise chickens whose ancestors lived during the reign of Julius Caesar?  That specific silver-grey Dorking chicken breed is being raised at Hunter’s Home. This workshop is free with the regular cost of admission.
