image sourceAre you an apartment dweller suffering from severe chicken envy? A former hen keeper with a case of fowl withdrawal? Then you definitely don’t want to go to this Saturday’s chicken coop and urban farm tour sponsored by Tilth.On the other hand, if you are both free of any livestock-related jealousy issues and interested in learning about how people and chickens can coexist in peace and urban harmony, this is probably the event for you. There will be other stuff to see on the self-guided tour of more than 45 sites, like bees and goats and ducks, but the stars of the show will be the feathered egg layers. And why not? They’re awesome! Stephen Green-ArmytageIn the interest of full disclosure, we confess to a certain bias on the chicken question. We used to own chickens, and no longer do, and suffer from chicken separation anxiety, which is a term we totally didn’t just invent. Needless to say, this event would open up too many wounds for us to attend. But we strongly encourage others to do so.Stephen Green-Armytage. Alternately, if you prefer your livestock on the page rather than in the flesh, you might consider ordering Stephen Green-Armytage’s Extraordinary Chickens, the best coffee table item that we are currently aware of.
