The Franklin Tractor Supply Company store will host a backyard poultry event on Aug. 10, providing customers the opportunity to learn how to care for and manage an at-home flock.
“The popularity of raising backyard poultry continues to grow year after year,” said Mark King, manager of the Franklin Tractor Supply store. “Poultry owners love the convenience of getting fresh eggs right from their own backyard, but many people don't know where to start. Our goal is to continue educating suburban and rural poultry enthusiasts while ensuring anyone who's interested in raising a backyard flock has the resources and information needed to do so.”
The poultry event, which runs from 9 a.m. until noon, will feature a number of expert event partners to provide customers with guidance.
In addition to the main event, customers will also have the opportunity to enjoy Backyard Poultry 101.
When it comes to raising backyard poultry, Tractor Supply is a one-stop shop, with starter kits, feeders, bedding, heat bulbs and lamps, coops, feed and more. For the poultry enthusiast, an expanded selection of poultry products is also available on TractorSupply.com.
This event is open to the public and will take place at 1101 Hillview Lane. For more information, contact the Franklin Tractor Supply at 615-791-0791.
