Our San Antonio Chicken Walk coop tour will be held April 16, 2022 from 10 am to 2 pm. This year’s coops are mostly on the Northside.

The self-guided tour starts at the Olmos Basin Farmers Market, 100 Jackson-Keller Rd. (or anywhere, if you register online before tour day). It wraps up at the Garcia Street Urban Farm from 2 to 4 p.m. for food, music, and door prizes. Use the hashtag #SAChickenWalk to share your photos on social media.

We provide a map and passport to pre-registered visitors by email, or you can get yours in person on tour day at the farmers market. Bring your cooler and check out the market!

This tour celebrates 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. We’ve had coops of all styles, and no style. It’s always fun to see the different ways people manage their coops. Whether you’re thinking about getting chickens or you’ve been keeping chickens for years, you’ll learn some new hacks and tricks.
