Birds of a feather flock together! And bird-brained people will be flocking to the third annual Galveston Island Chicken Shack Strut next Saturday, October 10, 10AM - 4PM, to tour local chicken coops and make feathered friends!

Galveston Island Chicken Shack Strut

10AM - 4PM, Saturday, October 10

Tickets: Adults $8/each; Youth (6-12 years) $4; Kids 5 years & under free!

The Galveston Island Chicken Shack Strut is a one-day self-guided tour of coastal chicken coops, hen houses, mobile tractors and crazy shacks. Open to adults and children, the tour will showcase island chickens and their keepers, and demonstrate how more and more city dwellers are incorporating chickens into their yards and lifestyles. Visitors will be able to talk to hosts about coops, feed, breeds, costs and their experiences raising healthy chickens in an urban environment. This is a rain or shine event; fowl weather won't stop the tour!

Tickets are available from The Kitchen Chick, located at 528 23rd Street, starting tomorrow through the day of the strut. Tour maps to help attendees navigate to each coop will be available at each tour stop. Proceeds from the tour benefit the Seawall Interpretive Trail (SIT) beautification program lead by Artist Boat, a Galveston non-profit organization dedicated to integrating the arts and sciences for exploration and appreciation of coastal habitats.

Keeping chickens is permissible within Galveston's city limits. In recent years, more and more islanders are raising chickens at home, often integrated with backyard gardens, compost systems, beehives and other elements of urban food production.
