do the funky chicken


not the dance but the funky chicken coop tour
its in austin about this time every year
my wife she and i have gone the last several years
and enjoy it every time we go

one of the memorable coops had an old television set as
a roosting box for the hens
you could look through the tv screen at the chicken laying
or sitting on the egg
so austin

this year we plan to experience the whole thing
from the talk on how to raise backyard chickens to the
author signing his book  raising chickens for dummies

theres even a bicycle tour of all the coop sites
no thats so austin

my wife she has this chicken purse that she carries around
with her that day
its always a big hit
people like to have their pictures taken with it
me i just hide when she flashes this purse around
i always pick my battles and this isnt one of them

my wife she and i love the tour even though weve done
it several times and have raised chickens for over ten
we still learn things every year
we get to talk to the fellow chickeners

i especially like to look at the different coop designs and
the landscaping that people have done in town on their
many have rainwater collection systems

weve borrowed a lot of ideas for landscaping projects
and gardening projects over the years

many of these chickeners are young professionals who
enjoy the fresh eggs every day and the experience of
raising chickens

granted some of the coops humans could live in
the chickens are spoiled some of them more than
poodles are sometimes

so if you are even thinking you might want to raise backyard
you should go on this tour

if you have young kids they definitely will love it

im a kid at heart i guess and i love it every time i go

try it out this year
