I am always excited when I read through the coop section and see all the creative (and practical) ideas for coops. Share your ideas with others by participating in the Austin Funky Chicken Coop Tour as a host , or helping out as a volunteer . Remember the deadline for entries is Jan 22, 2012 ! If you can't participate as a host or volunteer, drop by and see in person what others are doing with their coops. Most people who are interested in chickens are also gardeners, and you will see lots of wonderful gardens on he tour too.
