Tour date is 4/23/11. Austinites, It is still time to get your entry in for your coop to be on the tour. Deadline is 1/22/11. This year there will be prizes for different coop categories: Urbanist - The most sleek city design... no country cluckers here, just city chickers! Purtyist - Aesthetics of the coop itself, and how it blends with the rest of the property. Greenest - Most Sustainable Design - Energy efficiency and integrated permaculture. Funkiest Chicken Coop - Speaks "Austin" in its appearance, use of materials, overall design. People's Choice - Allows coop outside of above categories to be recognized. There are also volunteer opportunities if you want to participate, but not have your coop on the tour. See the FCCT Blogspot for entry and volunteer forms, plus additional information. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
