Save the date, chicken fans.
Everett is getting its very own chicken coop tour.
Following in the footsteps of similar tours in Seattle and Portland, Everett residents will get to explore 10 residential properties with chicken coops to learn about coop construction, hen-care requirements and local chicken laws.
The Riverside Neighborhood Association is hosting the inaugural tour — the Chicken Coop of Dreams — from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 24 at gardens, all in Everett.
Though maps and tickets will be available for free starting July 17 at Zippy’s Java Lounge, Sno-Isle Food Co-op and Cenex Co-op Supply, all in Everett, starting July 17, organizers are urging visitors to make a $10 suggest donation to the Riverside Neighborhood Association at any of the tour sites.
