2011 Funky Chicken Coop Tour

 
Inside Austin's Gardens Tour 

I’m rather excited about this, and hoping I get a chance to go. I’ve been wanting a few chickens for some time now… at least a couple years.

I could use the inspiration in coop design. Currently I’m stuck on how to build an effective coop as inexpensively as possible. I would like to use reclaimed materials For instance, my friend Grog has a bunch of leftover tin roof material he’d give me. In addition, I have raw Eastern Red Cedar posts to add into the finished product… to give it a little more rustic (read: funky) look. Maybe in a few years I could be part of the Funky Chicken Coop tour.

The picture is was taken during a Travis County Master Gardener Association garden tour from a couple years ago. I don’t remember the name of the garden’s owner, but it was in Crestview and the owner also ran a landscaping business. The yard was very impressive. I’ve been borrowing ideas from there ever since.

UPDATE:
The coop in the photo is from Cheryl Goveia’s garden. Her blog is at Conscious (Un)gardening.
