2nd Annual Chicks-in-the-hood Urban Chicken Coop Tour

Self Guided bike tour Sun, June 17, 9am – 3pm

The 2nd Annual Chicks-in-the-hood, Pittsburgh Urban Chicken Coop Tour, is a one-day, self guided urban chicken coop tour comprised of volunteers who are enthusiastic about showing how chickens and urban agriculture are thriving in the Northside and East End neighborhoods of the City.

The tour seeks to educate visitors about keeping hens and delight them with garden ideas and backyard sustainability projects. Open to adults and children, the tour showcases various styles of chicken coops and breeds. Urban chicken farmers will be on hand to discuss the how-to’s of chicken keeping. There are opportunities to photograph and get to know the chickens up close and personal. A wide variety of coop styles, as well as the surrounding backyard gardens, make the tour interesting and fun for the whole family.

Tickets for the tour are $10 – kids are FREE. A ticket purchase gets you a tour booklet, a map with directions to each participating coop on the tour, and an official Chicks-in-the-hood collectible pin. All proceeds will be donated to Grow Pittsburgh.
