Is a chicken coop on your holiday wish list? Come join the flock — Tour de Cluck coop applications are online now. This benefit for the Davis Farm to School Connection, returning on May 26, promises more fowl fun for all.

There is no better way to experience the most eggcellent Tour de Cluck: A Bicycle Chicken Coop Crawl, than by sharing your poultry palace as a coop host, says organizer Jacqueline Clemens.

This only-in-Davis event provides an opportunity to wheel around town, stroll through the back yards of friends and neighbors and see what all the chicken fuss is about.

To show off your coop on the crawl, complete the official Tour de Cluck coop application online at www.tourdecluck.org. All varieties of coops are welcome, from the most unique rustic creation made of recycled materials to your lavish poultry palace.

Tour de Cluck planners also hope to highlight a cluster of family-friendly coops where kids are the primary chicken-keepers.

The mission of Davis Farm to School is to create an educational and cultural environment in the schools that connects food choices with personal health, community, farms and land.

School lunches based on values that support a sustainable food system are envisioned as part of the educational culture. For more information visit www.davisfarmtoschool.org.

    If you are going to build a backyard coop I highly suggest using some chicken nipples to build your own hanging chicken waterer ;) The nipples screw into the bottom of a bucket and then you hang the bucket from a post or the side of the coop and it waters your chicks while keeping the water clean and fresh :) I purchased my chicken nipples from here: http://bafxpro.com/5-Pack-Chicken-Poultry-water-nipples-5.htm
