2011 Tour de Coop Plans Underway!

Tour de Coop mavens met this week to begin planning for the 2011 Tour de Coop. This year we have strong interest from chickenistas in Eagle interested in participating and co-hosting an expanded coop tour. We are exploring options and what such a tour might look like. More details to follow. We ask that anyone with information on potential event conflicts to let us know ASAP. You can post messages here or on the Boise Tour de Coop FaceBook page.



  1. When can we sign up to be a coop on the tour?

  2. We'll be taking names for potential tour hosts in the next few weeks, so stay tuned here and on our FB page @ Boise Tour de Coop. Thanks!

  3. Last year I was asked to host and couldn't but this year I have a new updated coop and would consider sharing, and also offering up my starter coop as a prize if someone with better carpentry skills than I would want to "gussie it up". It was my starter A frame and I learned a lot about what not to do the next time around. But for someone else starting out, or if someone with some carpentry skill, could retrofit it, it's a worthy little coup de ville. I housed three girls in there and they never complained. But they aren't exactly carpenty critics.


Please submit your own civilized comments or questions about backyard chickens or the Boise Tour de Coop.
