There’s a new trend in town; raising chickens, even in residential areas. The 2nd Annual Bend Chicken Coop Tour is set for this Saturday. And this Saturday hundred's are expected to go to a Bend Chicken Coop Tour to visit some chickens and pick up some ideas for building their own coops. Organizer Liz Lotochinski says many people are wanting to have fresh eggs at home: “A chicken is a great pet to have because its the only one that gives you food everyday. Your dog can't do that certainly, and then I think the other reason and partly why I'm doing it is because I've got young kids and so its a great learning opportunity for them. It’s a cycle of life;  chickens are born and sometimes chickens die and there's the whole regiment of sometimes feeding them and keeping them healthy.” The Chicken Coop Tour is also a fundraiser. Money and food raised will go to "Together for Children" Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center and NeighborImpact.
