Come join us as we welcome 30 chickens into our lives! Tour the coop, meet the chickens, enjoy some lemonade and community spirit. Retro Metro Chickens was started in an attempt to support and benefit family members, friends, and neighbors who are on limited retirement or disability incomes or otherwise struggling economically with access to a sustainable, safe, and nutritious food resource. This has been community driven and supported with donations of labor and materials, it just kind of came together and it's awesome! 148 sq. foot combined coop and run area, deep litter on earthen floor, attached shed with plans to include incubator and brooder box, a separate smaller area for sick, injured, or broody hens, and raising mealworms . I welcome all flocksters out there to teach and learn from each other!
