CLUCK promotes responsible urban chicken keeping in Lexington by:
- Connecting chicken keepers to the pleasure of keeping their own flocks
- Educating chicken keepers to maintain healthy flocks
- Promoting good relationships with neighbors without flocks
We do this so that chicken-keeping can be a healthy and neighborly part of Lexington’s food system. These are accomplished through 4 different efforts:
- CLUCK – Feed – Potluck where chicken-keepers gather to share the knowledge and pleasure of raising small flocks
- CLUCK – Ed – Educational classes and workshops about how to establish and maintain a healthy flock
- Annual Tour de Coops – A self guided tour to show examples of responsible and neighborly chicken-keeping in Lexington
- Initial Consults – A half-hour consult offered to folks looking to get started with backyard chickens.
