Coops #16-#20, near the Whole Foods Market ticket site:
18. Come and see our frontyard chicken coop! After all, chickens are nothing to be ashamed of! We have two Greek goddesses - Hestia, a black Sex-link, and Athena, a Barred Rock, two French Araucanas, Ginger and Felicity, and Boss, our American Delaware. They have provided all our eggs for the last three years and they are free to roam the back yard when we are home. Having them has been fun for the kids who are now vegetarians - never underestimate chickens’ influences! You can also see our photosensitive door that allows us to get up later than chickens.
20. New on the Tour in 2010! Our six hens are happy in a brand new coop! We are back on the tour after a year of rebuilding our home and theirs. We keep two of each: Barred Rock, Black Star and Araucana, who have plenty of sun and shade and table scraps. They keep us happy and healthy with their eggs - a rainbow of colors each day! Come see how fun and easy it is to keep chickens.
