PictureEver wonder what it’s like to keep a few backyard chickens…in Alameda? The Island City’s urban chicken coops range from humble to huge, and every year the Alameda Backyard Chicken group invites the public to come take a closer look, learn a little about raising backyard chickens (and maybe bees and vegetable plots), and just bask in the glory of our avian friends. People are strongly encouraged to bicycle or walk to as few or as many coops as they would like.

This event is Free and open to the public. Alameda See Spot Run is the official restroom and recharge stop for the Tour.
