SA Chicken Walk Coop Tours

Our 2nd Annual San Antonio Chicken Walk coop tour was held Saturday, April 13th, 2019, with great coops in north central San Antonio. We provided a map and passport to pre-registered visitors by email, and many people registered in person on the day of the tour.

These tours, generally held the Saturday before Fiesta, celebrate the October 2017 change to the San Antonio animal ordinance, raising the limit of backyard chickens allowed without a permit from 3 to 8. The San Antonio Express-News covered the inaugural event online and in the print edition, view the online Coop Tour Article.

The tour starts at the Olmos Basin Farmers Market (or anywhere, if you preregister online and get your map), and wraps up afterward at Pittman Sullivan Community Garden for food, music, and raffle prizes. Use the hashtag #SAChickenWalk to share your photos on social media.
