Webinar: Urban Hen Management and Medicine
Abstract: Urban hen keeping is increasing in popularity as more municipalities allow hens. Keeping a small number of hens well in a Alberta’s climate can be challenging and hen keepers are encouraged to form relationships with a veterinarian to assist with management, parasite control and health problems.
If you are a small animal veterinarian or RVT with limited exposure to hens, this introduction to urban hen management, breed selection & their most common health conditions will give you the confidence to expand your practice to include them!

Biography: Dr. Margaret Fisher is an Edmonton-based veterinarian with a varied background in poultry. Mixed animal practice, 10 + years with CFIA in both the district office and as a disease control specialist and 14 years working with Edmonton administration to create a hen program has given her a broad perspective on urban hens. She is very excited to share this new aspect of practice with her colleagues and hopes more veterinarians will become interested in providing this service to their clients.
