Michelle's EggsChickens in the Backyard

Gale Woods Farm, 7210 County Road 110 W.,  Minnetrista, MN 55364
Saturday, March 1, 2014; 9:30 a.m. to noon
Cost $8/per person; Ages 3+
Reservations Required Call 763-559-6700

 I’m pretty sure my neighbors hate me, and it is probably because something like this appeals to me.  If you are like minded, there is still time to sign up for Chickens in the Backyard at Galewoods Farm and learn how to keep chickens in your backyard.  Get some practical advice and I bet your kids will get to see some chickens.  The picture to the right is of the first egg laid by one of my sister’s backyard chickens next to a store-bought egg.

Joy Peters

Joy Peters - co-creator and writer for FamilyFunTwinCities.com.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.

  • Last year was the first time my family and I attended Our Kid’s World Fun Fest in West Palm Beach and we had a really great time. I recently found out the event is happening on Saturday April 26 & Sunday 27 and that I can even get FREE tickets for the kids online. Not only are my kids excited about this event but they are eagerly looking forward to meeting their favorite Nickelodeon characters. Here is the link where I accessed free kids tickets http://www.adayforkids.com/free-kids-ticket.cfm or you can visit their website http://www.adayforkids.com for more event details.
