Curious about raising urban chickens? Check out local poultry palaces on the self-guided Tilth City Chicken Coop Tour this Saturday. Two Ballard homes are part of the tour with 11 others in north Seattle and 14 more throughout Seattle.
The two stops in Ballard have some pretty unique features and they’re not just about chickens, Elaine Boyd with Tilth tells us. One includes a coop on wheels making it a mobile coop, which is also elevated for easy access. The hen house at the other stop collects filtered rain water for the chickens and the coop has a solar night light. There are also two baby goats born in May.
