Announcing the premier urban poultry event of 2016! The purpose of this tour is to encourage city residents to raise poultry 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. Our 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 chicken and other poultry keepers are tapping into backyard birds’ 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. Get inspired to create or enhance your own coop!
How do you show your chicken love? (Thanks to our 11-year-old artist for her demonstration.)
