Tour de Coops!

It's Portland's 7th annual 'Tour de Coops'
Portland's chickens, are lucky chickens!
There are some pretty nifty chicken houses out there.

Coops with green roofs, planted with sedums.
Rain chains too!
Chickens with their own mailboxes, screen doors and flower boxes!
Modern coops.
Coops with skylights and lots of recycled building materials.
Lush and beautiful backyards, with so many things to see!
Maybe all the chicken poop makes these plants look so good!
Thanks to Growing Gardens for hosting the Tour!
Thanks to all the chickens for showing us your homes!

Happy egg laying!
Wyatt

  1. I have never seen anything like that! Some pf those chicken houses were really nice. I have heard that some people in Chicago have started raising chickens, although I can't imagine how they get through the Chicago winters. Do they make chicken houses with heaters?

  2. That is really cool,Wyatt. Hey buddy, my mom picked Corn today. She has 7 quarts all cut and ready to start canning tomorrow. How are your tomatoes coming? Mine are starting to ripen very quickly... Mom makes juice that she puts other veggies in and makes it like V-87 or something. AND she makes stewed tomatoes with green peppers and onions and celery in it. I LOVE that stuffs.

  11. I went on the Tour de Coops when I was living in Portland for a year. We have one in Seattle, too, but have I gone? Nope. I feel I'm abusing my chickens when I see some of those coops!
