Welcome to the 5th annual Tour de Cluck
Tour de Cluck 2014 is a fantastic, chicken-centric community affair in Davis, CA. Our signature event is a bike tour of local chicken coops, sometimes called the “Coop Crawl.” This year’s bike tour is on Saturday, May 24, 2014. Remember to plan ahead to get tickets for this year’s crawl as this event usually sells out.
Kickoff day activities
On the morning of the Coop Crawl, bring the whole family down to Central Park in Davis where there will be a morning of fun and funny events. Check out the Fowl Food Fair at the Davis Farmers Market, the Kickoff celebration at the U.S. Bicycle Hall of Fame, and the exhibits of our community members at the Community Crowers on the Green. Find out if you will have the Courage to Cluck!
During the month of Tour de Cluck
Throughout the month of May, restaurants around town will be participating in the Fowl Food Frolic, where they will feature a signature Tour de Cluck dish. If you order one of these dishes, the participating restaurant will donate a portion of the proceeds to Tour de Cluck.
Chicken Skool events will also be featured during the Tour de Cluck month. There will be a variety of educational talks and activities with something for kid and adult fans of chickens.

I was inspired by Tour de Cluck and seeing how people incorporated chickens into their garden system.
I was surprised at how easy it was to raise chickens!
