In 2009 a small poultry enthusiasts got together to plan a coop tour for the Austin community. The purpose of the tour was to share and gather coop building ideas for present and future poultry owners, and to inspire another way for sustainability within the community.Each committee member brought individual expertise to the table.• Project Management• Publicity and Public Relations• Coop Owner Relations• Blog Support and MaintenanceTheir poultry experience ranged from new chicken owners of less than a year to over six years. The committee members raised a variety of breeds ranging from rare, endangered and heritage breeds, better known breeds raised primarily for eggs and food, and even some guineas.Due to the success of the tour, other coop owners from the 2009 tour volunteered to help out for 2010. We look forward to the experience and expertise they bring to the 2010 tour.
