Richard Brzozowski, a University of Maine Cooperative Extension poultry specialist, commented in a Morning Sentinel story about day-old mail order baby chicks that died en route from Pennsylvania to Mercer, Maine, when their delivery was delayed. Brzozowski said Maine farmers often rely on mail order chicks because there are no commercial hatcheries in Maine.

The University of Maine Cooperative Extension has named Dr. Richard Brzozowski as Maine small ruminant and poultry specialist. Brzozowski has worked as an Extension educator in Maine since 1987. He will continue to be based in Cumberland County, providing targeted, enhanced programming efforts to assist producers of sheep, goats, camelids, and all species of poultry throughout the state.

As a part of his new responsibilities, Brzozowski will offer two blogs on a regular basis — one blog for small ruminant producers and the other blog for poultry producers. These electronic communications will feature timely topics directed at production, management, and marketing.

If there are particular topics you would like to see Brzozowski address in his blogs, please contact him directly at
