Kent Tractor Supply hosts backyard poultry event Sunday

The birds are back in town.

The Tractor Supply Co. store, 8420 S. 228th St., Kent, hosts a backyard poultry event on Sunday, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

It is open to the public.

Customers will have the opportunity to engage in a number of activities all centered around learning how to care for and manage an at-home flock.

Participating event partners include Animal swap, North West Poultry, and local 4-H.

“The popularity of raising backyard poultry has continued to grow year after year and it has a lot to do with the convenience of getting fresh eggs right from your own backyard,” said Sam Samuels, manager of the Kent Tractor Supply store. “Our goal is to ensure that anyone who’s interested in raising a backyard flock has the resources and information needed to do so.”
