Brigham City Tour de Coops??

Ok people, it's time for some pre-preparation...I doubt that is even a word but here's what has been rolling around in my head (and the head of my wife). 

We have attended Salt Lake's Tour de Coops the past couple years (Salt Lake will do their 2012 tour on June 23rd and June 30th.  Go to http://wasatchgardens.org/calendar for more information). We think it would be great if the chicken enthusiasts of Brigham City, join together next year and do our own Tour de Coops.  I think we should have 6-10 of us willing to share our yards on one particular day during mid to late June.  This will give us all time to get the yards in shape and coops cleaned out.  This will be an opportunity to share our interest, educate our friends and neighbors and promote the benefits to raising chickens in Brigham City.

In order to do this, we need more people to read this blog or contact me so I will know if there is interest in this event.  Spread the word, evangelize, proselytize, advertize and hopefully by 2013 we'll have a fun successful event!

Below are some pictures I took from last years Tour de Coops in Salt Lake City to get you excited:

I stumbled across something interesting today. Check out this Billings blog advocating backyard chickens. They have quite an interesting entry showing the percentage of US cities allowing backyard hens: Billings Blog
