About the Tour D’Coop
This unique “Parade of Combs” features hens and coops tucked into the gardens of your friends and neighbors.

The Tour D’Coop is a one-day garden tour in Raleigh, North Carolina, that seeks to educate visitors about keeping hens and delight them with garden ideas and inspiration. Open to adults and children, the tour showcases various hen houses and breeds. 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 yard gardens make the tour interesting for the whole family.

Please leave pets and companion animals at home; many hens are not accustomed to dogs.

We encourage tour participants to use a map app on their phone to get directions the coops on Tour day. The tour tickets only provide the coops’ addresses and general location.
