Published 4:50 pm, Tuesday, May 1, 2012
Wakeman Town Farm is sponsoring a tour of what it says are 15 unique, "designer" chicken coops in Westport and Weston on Saturday, May 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Maps for the self-guided tour of what the farm said were "tricked out" coops will be available at 10 a.m. at the farm, 134 Cross Highway.
Tour maps are $10 and include a snack bag and optional scavenger hunt.
The farm said it planned the tour because interest in raising chickens in backyards is growing in the region and nationally.
Each map also is good for an ice cream sundae at the farm at noon. Additional sundaes will be $5.
Proceeds from map and sundae sales will help fund farm educational activities.
