Have you been wanting your own chickens and coop but didn’t know where to start or what the rules might be for where you live ?
Ready for new morning traditions of enjoying your coffee while you collect freshly laid eggs?
Austin Resource Recovery hes begun offering free chicken keeping classes and a $75 rebate on a coop.
Keeping chickens is a great way to help reduce the amount of waste going to the landfill. In keeping with the quirky and independent spirit of many of our Austin neighborhoods, backyard coops are becoming more and more common. Chickens recycle food scraps while provdiing you fresh eggs and creating healthy soil. ( Not to mention they can be pretty cute and fluffy! )
The classes are part of Austin Resource Recovery’s Home Composting Rebate Program, which provides Austinites with more ways to help reach Austin’s Zero Waste goal. To get started simply attend a class, purchase a chicken coop, submit the rebate application online and receive a $75 check.
