The Fourth Annual Tour of Raleigh’s Urban Chickens and Their Coops
Sponsored by Whole Foods Market
Proceeds benefit Urban Ministries
Raleigh’s city chicken owners invite you into their backyards for a first-hand look at keeping chickens in an urban environment. Discover the variety of breeds that might be nesting in your neighborhood, learn about raising chickens, and see how families integrate chickens into their gardening practices. In addition, you’ll be impressed by the ingenious coops that can be devised to shelter these feathered pets.
Admission: Please bring a non-perishable food or cash donation for Urban Ministries of Wake County.
100% of the food and money collected goes to Urban Ministries.
The 2008 Tour collected more than 1600 pounds of food and raised over $3000 for Urban Ministries.
