Come along April 25th 2015 from 2PM-4PM! The tours have the freedom and a terrific way to collect tips on coop design, find out about chicken breeds and satisfy the people that are raising chickens within the city. Tours are self-led and therefore are held in a number of neighborhoods around Columbus. Ours are in 1363 N. fourth Street…just a couple of doorways south from the gardens at fourth Street Farms in Weinland Park, an area from the Short North, College & New Indianola Historic Districts. Each one is welcome – it’s an excellent chance for children of every age group to see urban farming.
Maps for that tour can be found at City Folk Farms Shop in Clintonville. City Folk Farms also provides classes on keeping chickens, soap making, backyard gardening, & mushroom inoculation, as along with a number of urban farming events like seed & fermentation swaps. City Folk Farms is a superb source of urban residing in Columbus.
We expect to seeing you at fourth Street Farms. You can begin in the gardens on the self-led tour from the herbs, fruits & veggies before heading south 4 doorways to 1363 N. fourth Street, in which the chickens have a backyard existence. Entry from street or alley can be obtained. There"s also friendly cats as well as an older dog to invite you in, while you take a look at baby chicks and older hens!

Molly: This will be my first year having chickens in the winter… this was very helpful! Thanks
Mouse Toes: Nice set up and beautiful hens!
Amon7209: What size is the car structure itself? I plan on doing this.
Nouman Shabbir: Bared rock is quite famous
Anar Chy: so you heat the coop .. but with no isulating materials ?
Mi'kmaq Mama: +Anar Chy It is only heated with a heat lamp. I have now moved them into a shed-type structure. No insulation but it has a heat lamp. They are fine. If they were cold, I would see them huddling together, which they never do. They are cold-tolerant breeds.
Isaac owusu Kusi: what do you feed your chickens
Aaron Perrott: Wish we could have chickens here in Sackville. Time to head up to Beaver Bank! Nice setup, btw. Gives me a few ideas. Take care.
