Bull City Chickens
By: Mariana Byrd
Bull City Chickens is a website solely dedicated to...you guessed it...chickens in Durham! I thought this topic very appropriate to blog about since the chicken is the unofficial mascot of Urban Durham Realty (just take a look at the “chicken chase” we have in our houses for sale).
This month alone, Bull City Chickens is involved in three different, yet related, events:
1. Eggalicious “local chickens, local eggs, local restaurants”. Through October 22, 2011 participating local restaurants will feature a dish using local eggs. Yum!
2. Bull City Coop Tour - First annual self guided tour through some wonderful residential chicken coops takes place on Saturday, October 22, 2011 from 9:30-3:30pm. Maps available at the Durham Farmer’s Market and Bull City Burgers & Brewery.
3. Chickenstock - Free festival that brings the community together to learn about urban chicken raising and sustainable living. Festival takes place right after the Bull City Coop Tour this Saturday, October 22nd from 4-7pm at Bull City Burgers & Brew. Live music!
What a great way to support the local economy, eat some delicious food, and get some great ideas from your neighbors. This is what Durham is all about!
While you’re at it, you can take Jessica’s advice from last week’s blog and have some fresh local eggs for potential buyers next time you sell your home!
