‘Chicken Skool’ kicks off with ‘how-to’ coops

From page A4 | April 29, 2014 |

The fifth annual Tour de Cluck returns Saturday, May 24, with its signature bicycle tour coop crawl of local chicken coops.
During May, Davis Farm to School provides opportunities to learn how to keep chickens in Davis through a series of informal talks and workshops, or “Chicken Skool,” which is free and open to everyone.
The first session — “The Reinvention of the Chicken Coop” — runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, May 1, at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.
Authors Matthew Wolpe and Kevin McElroy will provide 14 building plans for chicken coops that range from the purely functional to the outrageously fabulous. Complete step-by-step building plans are accompanied by full-color photographs and detailed construction illustrations.

Some of the designs include the simple chick-in-a-box, a modern log cabin, the multi-use Kippen house garden roof chicken coop and the intriguing coopsicle. Books will be available for purchase and can be signed by the authors.
