Although raising chickens might seem like a lot of work, this tour might change your mind by showing the many ways they’re helpful for a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. The self-guided tour — with a map to each of the locations available online — takes you to 10 different private owners with backyard chicken coops.

These coops will range widely, from inexpensive shanties to elaborate palaces, but of course they’re all funky in their own way.

Details: 10 a.m. Saturday. $12. Various locations. austincooptour.org.
