Funky chicken On Saturday, April 3, 2010, from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Austin area residents with chicken coops will open their backyards to the public to show them off. Allandale will be well-represented in this year's tour. It's the second year of the event. Allandale has a cluster of 5 coops, one of the biggest concentrations in Austin. The next largest concentration is east around 7th and Springdale (3) and East on  969 (3). If you are thinking about keeping chickens in your own backyard, you'll
get some great ideas.  Click here for more information about this year's event.
