Thinking of getting chickens or just curious about backyard Chickens in the City of Chicago? This leisurely bike ride will take you to a number of Chicago Chicken keepers. The tour is open to all ages, and you will see a large variety of chickens breeds, coop designs, as well as the gardens and yards they occupy. Home to Roost will make an appearance at one of the sites (TBD). Each host will be able to answer questions you may have concerning regulations, feeding, coop designs, space required, egg production, and issues common to chickens in an urban environment.
So save the date of Sept 25th. This is both a group bike tour and/or a self-guided bike tour.
The group bike tour meets at 4134 N. Monticello at 10:30 am. The bike tour starts at 11 am. The biking group tour should last a couple hours and actual length will be determined by the group itself.
The self-guided tour starts at any of the 20+ host sites and just follow the map provided at each site.
The “Windy City Coop Tour” is open as a non-biking event, too.
The Official Windy City Coop Tour hours are 11am – 2 pm Additional information including web site, press release, maps, etc. are forthcoming and will be provided on the Windy City Coop Tour page. Not required, but an RSVP to the bike tour will be helpful in planning. We hope you can join us!
