8th Annual Austin Funky Chicken Coop Tour
The purpose of the 8th Annual Austin Funky Chicken Coop Tour is to encourage city residents to raise chickens at home by demonstrating the many ways that chicken (and other poultry) housing can be incorporated into urban residence without violating city ordinances or creating a nuisance. The theme this year is Chickens as Zero Waste Heroes. Participants will tour chicken coops located at homes around Austin to catch a rare firsthand look at the many innovative ways Austin’s chickenkeepers are tapping into backyard poultry’s potential to transform household waste into valuable compost for lawn and garden. Learn how these delightful animals can help minimize the amount of waste our city sends to the landfill.
