The Austin and Central Texas Backyard Poultry Meetup Group is for people who have or are interested in raising small backyard flocks of chickens, ducks, guineas, turkeys, geese, quail, or other poultry for pets, eggs, meat, or exhibition. Our in-person meetups are headquartered in the Austin, Texas, area, with some Meetups in the surrounding Central Texas area. We welcome anyone interested in raising poultry to participate in our online forums, even if you can't always come to an in-person Meetup.
You just might be surprised at how many people living in your neighborhood are raising chickens and other poultry, in addition to gardening, composting, raising bees, and incorporating solar energy, rainwater harvesting and other clean and alternative energy solutions into their backyard food production.
If you are new to raising poultry, our members are always happy to share tips on getting started raising chickens and other poultry. We know chickens and poultry are only one part of living a more sustainable lifestyle. Nature is interconnected, so we also address integrating poultry into more general food production and environmentally conscious practices.
We vary our in-person meet up styles. We have occasional field trips to local farms and feed mills, educational lectures and workshops, and some social and educational gatherings. We are always adding new ideas and meetups to our calendar, and flock is always happy to share their experience and their ideas.
