Billings Farm & Museum, gateway to Vermont’s rural heritage, is featuring Heritage Chicken Days on Saturday & Sunday, August 19 & 20, from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. A variety of heritage chicken breeds will be featured, including threatened and rare breeds like the Blue Andalusian and Buff Laced Polish. All are protected breeds of the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, a nonprofit membership organization working to conserve over 180 historic breeds of livestock and poultry and maintain genetic diversity.
Heritage Chicken Days will feature programs and information about each breed’s unique traits, plus interesting facts about chicken and eggs. Chicken-themed activities and programs for children will include make-it-and-take crafts and games.
Admission includes all activities and programs, plus the operating dairy farm, farm life exhibits, the restored and furnished 1890 Farm House, plus the 31st Annual Quilt Exhibition.
(Guests of the Woodstock Inn & Resort receive free admission.)
