Welcome to Charlotte’s very first Queen’s Coop, Yardbird Fair and Coop Tour. The Queen’s Coop is a one-day Free Range tour in Charlotte, North Carolina, that seeks to educate visitors about chicken nutrition, the benefits of organics and non GMO products as well as providing a forum for tips on all things chicken. Open to adults and children, the tour showcases  coop construction and design by members of the community.  Coop owners are on hand at each location to discuss the how-tos of chicken keeping and there are opportunities for photographing and getting to know the chickens. The wide variety of coop styles as well as the surrounding back yards make the tour interesting for the whole family.

    Prior to the tour, enjoy a range of activities at Four Dogs Pet Supplies.  The activities include Heist Brewery’s Very Chicken Breakfast at Four Dogs, Chicken Nutrition class by Jeff Mattocks, and a show and tell by Microfarm Organic Gardens.  Maps will be distributed at noon and run until 4pm.

    Prizes will be awarded for the most eco-friendly coop, funkiest/best decorated coop, and also to the “Chicken ala Queen” for the people’s favorite. Purchase your tickets early and join us for a fun-filled day of all things chicken.

    NOTE: This is a rain or shine event.  All proceeds go Second Harvest Pet Food Bank.
