Ever wondered what exactly was bock-bock-bocking behind your neighbor’s fence? Keeping chickens is an environmentally friendly and healthy lifestyle, and a surprising number of your neighbors engage in it. Some Davis-ites keep their hens in unpretentious little pens, while others invest in the fancy or whimsical or creative coop.
The Tour de Cluck is your ticket to the backstage life of Davis poultry. Join your friends or family on a relaxing bike ride through Davis and gain entry behind the gates of some of the funnest clucky coops in Davis.
