USDA Chicken Survey -- Count Your Chickens!

Saturday, July 17th
9:00 - 2:00
Denver Urban Homesteading Farmers' Market
200 South Sante Fe Drive in Denver

The chicken survey will be anonymous (no names or addresses will be collected). All participants will receive a $10 coupon to the DUH market!

This 2010 study of backyard chicken farmers will occur in four major US cities: Denver , Los Angeles , Miami and New York . Urban chicken owners in these cities will be asked to participate in the study by completing a brief survey about their chickens. Participating will: (a) help poultry experts at area universities and the USDA develop educational information for the benefit of chicken owners, (b) evaluate the potential impacts of diseases that affect chickens and humans, and (c) determine trends in urban chicken ownership. 

Participants must own chickens and live on less than one acre in the greater Denver metro area, bounded roughly by 120th Avenue on the north, 470 on the east and south, and Indiana/Youngfield/Union/Kipling on the west.
