Heard of the Tucson egg business Zen Hens? Its eggs and composted chicken manure fertilizer can be found at a couple of farmers' markets around town. Every time I hear of the company's name it brings to mind a chicken in deep meditation, which makes me happy.
In other chicken news, Food Conspiracy Co-op is getting ready to hold its extremely popular annual backyard chicken coop tour. The self-guided tour takes place Saturday, Dec. 3, and tickets are $5. Call the co-op for more information.
