For those thinking about bringing a couple chicks into the fold at home, you can spend the weekend learning about the best ways to build up your own coop with the Food Conspiracy Co-op’s chicken coop tour. If you're looking to get tips on the best way to bring up your brood or just interested in chatting with some fellow fowl enthusiasts, the tour is a good way to kill two birds with one stone... Wait.

Although past iterations of the event specifically highlighted household chicken keeping, this year’s event has grown to include the “farm scale” operation at ReZoNation Farms in Avra Valley—the very farm that supplies the co-op with some of the eggs that they sell. Stops for the eighth year's event also include Las Milpitas Farm at the Community Food Bank, an herbal hen mix maker called Holistic Hen and more. The co-op itself is on the tour this year, providing information on their farmer loan program, local egg samples and some helpful chicken raising ideas. The tour is self-guided.

The chicken coop tour kicks off at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5 and runs until about 3 p.m. that day. Tickets for the tour are $5 and available now at Food Conspiracy Co-op (412 N. Fourth Ave.). Tickets, along with more information, are also available on the co-op's website. Discounts on chicks and laying pellets at three local stores are included in the ticket price.
