To do in Austin, TX: "Third Annual Funky Chicken Coop Tour"

BB reader J. Woods says,

If you're in Austin this Saturday, check out the third annual Funky Chicken Coop Tour--there's no food more sustainable and local than eggs from your own backyard! We also have an Info Center with a drawing for a free chicken coop, along with other cool chicken-related prizes. It's a free, self-guided tour using maps downloaded from our website. You can also see some of the coops on videos.

  1. As someone who has a dozen chicks in their living room right now and is building a coop this weekend, this is relevant to my interests.

    Also, got chickens.

    They are the coolest creatures and insanely adept hunters. They seem more intelligent than people lead on, as well.

  2. I live in Austin and recently got two chickens. I have to say the community of backyard chicken keepers is just amazing in terms of knowledge and support.

    My neighbor has a dozen hens and is allowed to sell eggs by city code, but is not allowed to sell them under the terms of his home insurance. I think it is really sad… there are so many people who would benefit from the eggs he gathers and right now he gets more than he can use.

    But I love my new chickens! They have a lot of personality, and they are enthusiastic little composters. Oh, and, as hens, they are way more quiet than the dogs in my neighborhood.
