Tucson Backyard Chicken Coop Tour Announced!

The Food Conspiracy Co-op has announced a citywide Chicken Coop Tour of various local backyard chicken coops for Saturday, May 23, from 9am-1pm.  Tickets will cost $5 per person and all proceeds will go to the Community Food Bank’s Community Foods Consignment Program.  So mark your calendars for this up-close and personal look into the many different ways that Tucsonites keep backyard chickens, and start dreaming about how you too can have your very own backyard fresh eggs and chicken compost.  For more information or answers to your questions, follow this link.

    That is a really cool idea. I have heard of Christmas Tour of Homes and such but never a backyard chicken coop tour.

    Hey Matthew,
    Enjoyed your blog..going to catch the chicken coop tour and hope to meet you!

    Go Dukes! Both our sons played football at JMU (one is on his last year there). We lived in Williamsburg for 20 years, and now in Tucson since ’05.

    Did you know Joel Salatin at Polyface? Used to make the drive to the farm to buy from him.
    Look forward to meeting you, Cathi

    Matthew, are there breeds that are more heat-tolerant and more suited to Tucson? (I’ve Googled and can’t find much on this.) It seems that feed stores and people on Craigslist have pretty much anything you could want.
