It is time to start sprucing up your coops and getting in your applications for the 2013 Funky Chicken Coop Tour on March 30, 2013. If your coop is in the Austin, Texas City Limits and meets all code requirements for the City of Austin and your home owners or HOA association guidelines, you might be strutting your stuff (chicken stuff that is) for all to see on March 30, 2013. Your coop doesn’t have to be funky or fancy, but it does need to be predator proof and protect your birds from the elements. Show Austin what you have! Deadline for applications is January 13, 2013. Check out www.austincooptour.org for complete guidelines and an application.
