“6th Street Chicken Chase”

Organized by C.L.U.C.K

Sponsored by Floyd’s Farm & Home

Floyd’s Farm & Home is your source for sustainable living supplies and services – tools you need to raise, grow, harvest, and preserve.

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.

Consulting
