Chicken Lover Gift Ideas – 2011 edition

Last year I put together this list of gift ideas for the chicken lover in your life, so naturally, this year I’m doing it again!

On the top of my list is of course: this fantastic book!

Of course I am shamelessly biased…  It can be ordered here: Free-Range Chicken Gardens: How to Create a Beautiful, Chicken-Friendly Yard

Next up is anything HANDMADE – support crafty artists on my favorite go-to site : ETSY search for handmade “chicken” items You can find anything from chicken coops, tshirts, costumes to art prints and everything in between.

Why not surprise your chicken hugger with this special seed mix just for their flock?  This Omega-3 Chicken Forage Blend seed mix from Peaceful Valley belongs in every chicken garden!

And seriously, who wouldn’t want a chicken hat? Because I love wearing beanies in the winter to keep my noggin warm, I have been on the look out for a charming, but slightly tacky new addition to my wardrobe which involves chickens.  I am known to occasionally sport this fashionable Hen Bag, so I think this Chicken Face White Wool Hat  makes sense, right? It would be great for when I want to embarrass my fashionista friends or my children in public.  Check out ETSY for a great variety of handmade chicken hat styles!

  1. OMG, that hat is freaking adorable. Want!! I had no idea that seed mix was available. How neat! Thanks for the tip! Can’t wait to read your book – I certainly need all the help I can get in the chickens/ gardening dept. They seem to scratch or sit on every new plant I get! Except, like, catmint, artichokes, and raspberries. That’s my garden now.

  2. Thanks so much for the great plug for Etsy, and us chicken enthusiasts in particular! My husband and I make the “chicken crossing” sign that is on the “chickens” search page on Etsy and we were wondering why it has suddenly become so popular 🙂 We so appreciate the publicity and support!!
