I’m looking for a very small coop to house 2 silkies. Does anyone have something they’re looking to offload?

Annika:  I have an old egglu that might serve.  It’s plenty big for 2 birds.  You’d need to build a run for it.  Yours to take away.  I’m in Rogers Park.

Simone,

I am interested in exposing the residents of the Admiral at the Lake to a day of touring chicken coops on the north side.  This group are real environmentalist and would love the tour. Do you know to whom I contact for literature?  I have done the self tour so can get around the city well.

Hi Caroline, 

Are you meaning printing literature you have written? Or are you looking for someone to write it? 
Thanks!

Simone, 

I live at The Admiral at the Lake on Foster and Marine Drive.  The Admiral is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC). The independent residents are friendly, active, interested in life and continuing to learn. I've been attending the Chicken Coop tour for over 10 years and thought this would be a good event for our curious, environmentally aware community. I would like to post the upcoming event and have fliers available for our residents.  How can I accomplish this goal?

Caroline Ash

Hello Caroline,

I have not seen any indication the Windy City Coop Tour is happening this fall. If you have any information… please share! 

I have visitors from my neighborhood come to see my chickens nearly every day. I often invite them into the yard for a closer interaction with the flock. If you are looking for an outing, perhaps we could work something out.

Tim, I could be one of your visitors who has seen your operation.  The coop tour is one of my favorite events in the city. Let's talk.  Caroline Ash

 I can be reached at 773-802-8872.

No backyard coop this year?  So sorry

Caroline

I’m in Old Irving Park on Kenneth just north of Milwaukee. Large lot full of plants… including too many Althea (Rose if Sharon). I have 26 chickens now, 6 are under 7 weeks old and one, Goldilocks, lives indoors until she is ready to rejoin the flock. Been having a lot of fun bringing her outside after dark to hunt for cicadas and earwigs!

Tim,

Sounds wonderful.  I should see if I can have 2 more folks open their backyards and make it an outing.  I tossed all my literature when I moved. There were a few more coops that were very interesting, too. It is special when the owners explain their set ups.  Are you familiar with other interesting places?

Caroline

I am not familiar enough with other chicken keepers who might want to do this. Perhaps others reading this thread are interested. 

I have never been to Glen Arts Farm (here in the city) but I believe they have goats. I imagine I could reach out to Jen Murtoff (Home To Roost) to come by for an educational hour… she may know of other coops that would be appropriate. Her availability is limited until sometime in September. Jen has joined me here for the coop tour a few times and came by for National Drinking With Chickens Day (May 23). We also did a live interview segment on WBEZ last year… about backyard chickens of course!

If you want to stop by and see the premises sometime, text me at 
I will put your number in my phone book.

Hi Caroline, 

My setup is much smaller than Tim’s— only 3 hens, but you and your friends are welcome to come visit any weekend. I’m in West Rogers Park, around Western Ave and Peterson.

I added your # to my cell.  I would like to keep the gentleman who is in charge of these outings informed and maybe have him, the enthusiastic driver and a few others take the tour.

BTW, all activities at The Admiral are committee driven so our lectures, plays, games, movies etc have the residents involved.  We've got a bee hive on the roof which we will remove and jar the honey this week.

Thanks.  I am sorry the backyard coop event isn't happening.  Has it occurred since Covid?

The coop tour happened last year and I’m 2020. Masks and sanitizer were supplied. They seemed exactly like previous years!
