Speaking Chicken + Giveaway




If you spend enough time with the flock you will inevitably learn their language. We've been speaking chicken for years with our own flock and I share how you can do it too in my book. Recently I sat down and wrote a blog post for my publisher about speaking chicken. You can read it here.

Chickens are also completely trainable. I cover how to do that in my book too. A great place to start is with treats. Enter to win these delicious treats (good for training) and a treat ball from Treats for Chickens.

A Kid's Guide to Keeping Chickens- Tour Stop #9 + Chicken Coop Giveaway




I am so thrilled to announce that My Pet Chicken will be reviewing and giving away a copy of A Kid's Guide to Keeping Chickens today on their blog! Of course, kids and chickens go hand in hand and I love that the owners and employees of My Pet Chicken have kids of their own.


The other exciting news is My Pet Chicken is graciously giving away " The Clubhouse" chicken coop  (learn more about this coop by clicking on the highlighted link) to one of our lucky readers!

When we first started out with chickens, My Pet Chicken is where we began our journey. I loved that they had a breed selection tool to help us choose the best breeds for us. I was thrilled that they had many breeds to chose from and you could mix and match them in your order. However, the best part for us was that they had a 3 chick minimum order. This is what made keeping chickens in my yard doable. I didn't have to order a minimum of 25 chicks.

We purchased a very similar coop from My Pet Chicken for our first little babies. Since then, we have had such wonderful experiences with this supportive and friendly company over the years. These smaller coops are great for small flocks and also make wonderful brooders or isolation coops for those already with larger flocks.




But that is not all! Did you also know that the experts at My Pet Chicken have written their own book about chickens? It's another great one to add to your chicken library as well! Click here for more details or to order a signed copy. So head on over and visit the My Pet Chicken blog to win a copy of both my book and theirs!

I hope you will join us for the rest of our book tour to meet some new chicken friends, discover new bloggers and join in celebrating the release of my first book.
