Raise Your Own Family of Chickens with CountryMax

As Seen On

Spring begins today and now is a good time to start a new tradition. If gardening isn’t for you, try raising chickens. CountryMax has everything you need. 

The CountryMax store in Cortland is hosting a free seminar Wednesday night for those interested in raising their own chicks.

The seminar will teach you how to feed, care, house, and raise chicks in your own backyard. Choose from a variety of chickens available at any CountryMax store and if you’re favorite breed isn’t available, you can special order it.  

CountryMax is a local retailer that has more than food for your feathered friends.

They carry a wide selection of pet foods and supplies, as well as small animals and supplies for your home, lawn, garden, and stables.

The company has over 35 years of experience and has 16 convenient locations across New York including four CNY locations in Baldwinsville, Cicero, Cortland, DeWitt, and Oswego.  

The poultry seminar is Wednesday, March 20th at 6:00pm at their store in Cortland.
