Chicken coop workshop this Saturday (Oct. 5)

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

I’ll be leading a Chicken Coop Building Basics workshop this Saturday, October 5th from 10-noon at Growing Gardens in NE Portland.

If you or anyone you know (in or near Portland, of course) is thinking of keeping chickens and wants to get past the intimidating part of building a coop — or if you already have some ideas for an amazing DIY coop and just want a place to bounce them around — this is it.

We’ll talk about what chickens need in a coop, different coop styles, options for building materials, and tips on how to incorporate your coop and flock into your home garden. I’ll do some small demonstrations, but you don’t have to worry about getting your hands dirty. Just come learn!

A separate workshop, Intro to Urban Chicken Keeping, will follow at 12:30p.

Register for one or both of the workshops here.

We had a great day in the sun and put together an awesome coop. Read on for more details and pictures.
