America's Strangest City Tours

Funky Chicken Coop Tours, Austin

Austin: City Chicken Coops

Strange Factor: Peek inside the Live Music Capital of the World’s henhouses on the Funky Chicken Coop Tour. During the open house event, folks download a map and make their way around the Austin city limits to check out coops made out of everything from shingles to recycled materials—and their featured inhabitants.

Highlights: Although the Austin open house happens only once a year (in April), city chicken coop tours are a nationwide “sustainable living” trend across the country, from Albuquerque to Las Vegas.
