Backyard Activity – Chicken Coop Tours!

May 18, 2010 at 9:02 am 8 comments

Great short video on some really amazing people in Portland, Oregon

who love chickens so much they organize tours of the neighbourhood

chicken coops!  Jeffry Crinklaw is so into his own coop project that he

inspires other people to try their own.  He also says it’s important to

get a partner involved, as it’s a fun thing to do together.  There

are some great tips and visuals here to ponder on, and proves

chickens are back in the neighbourhood.  Many thanks for this

inspiring story to Cooking Up A Story, where Executive Producer,

Rebecca Gerendasy, brings all the best food news to the world.

      I agree it’s wonderful, Jill. And I know a lot of places can’t do this kind of thing, but fun to know it is going on.

    I don’t think our Homeowners Association would allow us to keep chickens, but the video was fun to look at anyway.

      Agree, Vi, as I mentioned to Jill, some places just can’t do it. What impressed me most is the love people have for these birds, it must be such an ancient tie.

    Excellent, love it! My kids had chicken cam when we looked after some for friends, but sadly the chickens got attacked by predatory birds, but had a great life whilst they were alive.

      Glad you liked the idea, June. It is such a shame about the chickens you were looking after. I hope everyone coped with it okay.

    Wonderful. This brings back memories of the chookies at Wartook. I would love to get some.
