Host Your Own Tour de Coop
An underappreciated aspect of our backyard chicken hobby is the people we befriend. The community aspect of homesteading and raising chickens is vital to keeping up with best practices and growing our body of knowledge. Having chicken comrades that we can learn from and bounce ideas off is immeasurable. Whether it is through blogs, magazines, or our Facebook group Backyard Poultry Chat, fanciers helping fanciers is awesome. One way of meeting local chicken coop connoisseurs is by starting or partaking in a Tour de Coop.   Tour de Coops and Tour de Clucks have been happening around the U.S. for about 15 years. They attract people researching practical and gorgeous coop designs that will result in happy backyard hens and fresh frittatas. Unfortunately, many of the early coop tours have gone kaput. I interviewed two long withstanding coop tours to find out their success.   M’Liss Koopman, Tour D’Coop Chair and Jordan Hewitt, Communications and Marketing Coordinator, of Urban Ministries of Wake
