Backyard Chickens

Backyard chickens provide you with fresh eggs that you gather right in your own backyard. Many local municipalities now allow hens to be kept in city limits upon successful completion of the Backyard Chicken Workshop class at Indian Creek Nature Center.

Learn the basics required to safely and successfully raise chickens in urban and suburban areas. Participants will receive a certificate of completion, enabling them to receive a permit to legally keep chickens in Cedar Rapids, Marion, and other neighboring communities.
