The Funky Chicken Coop Tour®, founded in 2009, is an annual self guided tour held each spring on the Saturday of Easter weekend in Austin, Texas, by the 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization the Urban Poultry Association of Texas, Inc. The purpose of this tour is to encourage city residents to raise chickens at home by demonstrating the many ways that chicken (and other poultry) housing can be incorporated into urban residence without violating city ordinances or creating a nuisance.
My neighbor, who is very sweet, as well as developmentally challenged, has a habit of coming into my backyard and leaving the gate open. At least I think it is she who leaves it open... The gate is often mysteriously open after I meticulously close it, and I doubt the chickens know how to open the latch. I know she visits when I'm not home because I've found her there before.
