I'm accustomed to coop tours and chicken talks happening in the spring and summer months, so it's a bit of a surprise to discover that there's a coop tour appearing on the calendar just before Halloween this year in McClellanville, SC.
The McClellanville Arts Council ("Where everyone is an Artist") is holding the on Saturday, October 30, 2010.
The day-long schedule includes the following activities:
a morning panel discussion on raising poultry and a craft workshop: Chicken Art with Chicken PartsAn afternoon Tour da Coops, a self-guided tour of local chicken coops and poultry sites.And things wind up with a photograph exhibit featuring local poultry and coops and a raffle of a hand-crafted coop/tractor in the shape of a chicken. People will be able to vote on their favorite poultry and coops and there will be door prizes throughout the day from local businesses.
If only I lived on the East Coast, I know where I'd be spending the day before Halloween. I look forward to hearing the recap from the event and you can rest assured I'll be posting it here.
Anyone know of any other Fall/Winter coop tours or chicken talks? Let me know and I'll add them to the list.
