One hobby that continues to grow in interest is raising backyard chickens. This stems from families having the desire to grow their own food and from youth bringing home chicks from their classroom’s Egg to Chick project. Either way, we are excited that we are in the middle of a chicken frenzy around here!
The 7th Annual Wise Chicks Coop Tour kicks off May 6th. The Wise Chicks Coop Tour will start with a “Backyard Chickens 101” seminar at the Wise County Fair Grounds, Women’s Building at 9:00 am, followed by a self-guided tour of the coops. Both events are FREE and open to the public of all ages.
