Chickens Stories from Our Nest

2nd Annual Hug A Chicken Day™

Did you remember to hug one of your chickens today?  Last year, after a great deal of thought, I felt it was important to honor our backyard chickens.  After all, how different would our lives be without them?  I am grateful for their eggs, their companionship, entertainment, lessons in life, the responsibilities they have taught my children, their little noises and their lust for life!

Tilly was up first.  I just love how they nuzzle into that little space of my neck.  Their warm little wattles and combs touch my skin. I can hear them breathing into my ear and cooing happy content little chicken words.  I just love when they decide to close their eye with pure contentment.

Please be sure to share a photo of you hugging your chickens today on our Facebook page or the Hug A Chicken Day™ event page.   For exclusive Tilly’s Nest merchandise that ships worldwide commemorating the event, click here.

  • Happy Hug A Chicken Day! So glad that you started this. Of course I hug my chickens nearly every day, it is good to set aside time to get them extra hugs 🙂
