Got Chickens??

The finished backside of the coop~shingles and all!

Last September, Traverse City joined a number of forward thinking communities that allow city residents to raise chickens.  To celebrate, I’m joining a few other city chicken farmers and chicken enthusiasts to plan Traverse City’s first Tour de Coop.  Imagine, a parade of homes for chickens!  It’s sure to be a great time and is tentatively scheduled for June.   

Molly, the soon-to-arrive chicks and I are participating, but we’re on the lookout for other Traverse City Urban Chicken Farmers. 
Live in town?  Have chickens?  Want chickens?  Just like chickens and want to help?  Join us at Higher Grounds on Sat. March 20th at 10am for the first planning meeting.  This guy will be there.  So will this guyShe’ll be there too.  Will you?

  1. This sounds really cool. In my past, I worked for Purina Mills and we recognized the growing trend of “family flocks” way back 15 or so years ago. At that time, it was a growing suburban trend. Now I see its continued to urban climes. Fab. Can’t wait to hear how many folks in Traverse City are on the coop tour!

    I would love to be a part of the tour – but I don’t think my Lake Ann girls qualify as being urban chickens (even though we are in a subdivision). Maybe I’ll stop by the meeting though to chat chickens with others ;)
