DRA Chapter Organizing 4th Annual Tour of Backyard Poultry in Sioux Falls

This spring bird flu cropped up at nine factory-poultry sites in South Dakota affecting 1.17 million chickens and turkeys.

If you’d like to see chickens that did not get or spread bird flu, come to the fourth annual Sioux Falls Tour de Coop, an event organized by the Homegrown Sioux Falls chapter of Dakota Rural Action to showcase the healthy, yummy chickens folks are raising to feed themselves and their neighbors right in their own backyards:
