Exhibit entitled Nobody Here But Us Chickens, will get cracking on Sept. 21

The Historic Stewart Farm will open an exhibit this month on chicken history.

The South Surrey farm, located at 13723 Crescent Rd., will feature the exhibit entitled Nobody Here But Us Chickens, which will get cracking on Sept. 21 running to Nov. 9 and will explore the history of domesticated chickens and poultry farming, chicken care and chicken-coop design.

According to the release, visitors can also learn how to raise their own backyard chickens and discover how chickens can help control pests in the garden.

The exhibit will open at noon on Sept. 21, with the opportunity for visitors to meet heritage chickens, do crafts and games and take a guided tour with curator Lynn Saffery.

On Oct. 5, the farm will also host two programs extending the exhibition theme. Backyard Chicken Basics and Eggsploration for kids. To pre-register, call 604-592-6956.

Entrance is by donation.
