Tour De Cluck…..Who’s In For Great Fun?

By Dawnie May 12, 2011

Back by popular demand, the second annual Tour De Cluck: A Bicycle Chicken Coop Crawl offers the chicken lovers and chicken curious among us another opportunity to visit a variety of our fantastic Davis, CA community’s chicken coops. Saturday, May 14th!  This bicycle paean to poultry will benefit Davis Farm to School’s work to support local food in a healthy school environment.

The coops featured will be presented as a self-guided tour in neighborhood clusters (coop loops!) all with nearby access to Davis’s extensive network of bike paths and bike lanes. Timed to coincide with “May is Bike Month”, our cycling coop visitors will find roving bicycle support and some limited emergency repairs provided by “Davis Bicycles!”, so dust off that bike and ride!

In addition to the egg-cellent Chicken Coop Crawl, The Tour de Cluck will feature presentations by backyard poultry experts to inform your chicken decisions, from breed selection and feeding options to coop design and construction! Also returning, the hugely popular Tour de Cluck Art Exhibit and Silent Auction! Here you will find the chicken and farm-related art and other tantalizing items of your poultry and local agriculture dreams. In addition, it’s never too early to begin practicing your cluck, bawk and cockle-doodle-do for the Kick-off Clucking Exhibition. We suggest you begin forming your flock now.
