Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

  • I would like a silkie because that's the kind of real chicken I want to have some day.

  • Thank you for setting aside a special day to hug our chickens, it's wonderful :) Will be posting pics in the morning. Had to see all the cool items from your sponsors as soon as you posted them. I love my babies, they are my therapy and are all snugglers except for one aloof girl that appreciates the occasional pet while standing close by.

  • I would love it if the Pet Chicken Ranch created a special girl like my fluffy little bearded salmon faverolles. I have 4 of these ladies in my flock of 43. Yikes, I just made myself count them up. Chicken math. I didn't understand it when I first started keeping chickens but that doesn't mean it didn't happen!

  • I have 20 hens in my flock, 5 old girls and 15 newbies from this springs chicks.

  • I would love a little speckled hen if I should win!

  • These are all great! I have strange hens (Silkie x Cochin and Barbou d'Avers) so any sweet hen will do for me!

  • lori

    Thanks for the great giveaways & a great fb page!

  • A frizzle pocket hen would be so cute <3

    I love my leghorns, I wouldn't mind a couple more. They are so inquisitive (annoying) and always make me laugh. Thanks for making this day a success. I'll post a pic with me and my fave Leghorn (Camilla) later today. The sun isn't up here yet!

    I would like a white Leghorn in memory of my Lucy I just lost last week – or – a Silkie Roo Salmon Faverolle would also be nice. It's so darn cute! Thank you.

    I had eight chickens, until last week. I recently lost one of my Battery Leghorn Hen's. Now I have a Brown Silkie Hen, White Silkie Hen, Leghorn Hen, Three White Silkie Roo's and One Silkie Salmon Faverolle Roo. I love them all and hug them daily. :)

  • I would love anything Jenny makes! They are all brimming with personality!

  • I have 10 hens and two roos! Love to spoil them all!

  • Pet Chicken Ranch has the cutest chickens!

  • Such a difficult choice that would be if I won! But I think maybe it would either be a yellow buff orphington to remember my Trixie who I lost in October 8th, or my light brahma Daisy Mae…would she be the first with feathers on her feet and I would just love a fluffy butt from Jenny and the Pet Chicken Ranch!! :-)

  • It would be such a hard choice to make… I would choose either a yellow buff orphington to remember my Trixie which I lost on Oct. 8th or a light brahma like my Daisy Mae ….would it be the first of Jenny's creations with feathers on her feet and I would absolutely love a fluffy butt! :-)

  • Oh wow, how do I decide? A silkie because it will be fluffy, an americauna because they're cute, or a RIR because it'll remind me of my girls!

  • I missed "Hug A Chicken" Day this year because we were taking care of legal work to officially become the owners of my family's log cabin & property. I love Pet Chicken Ranch! I think Jenny should make a fluffy-faced blue Ameraucana. It would be adorable!

  • I have several different groups of chickens totaling 50+ There's Bantam Russian Orloffs, Ameraucana, Black Copper Marans, Olive Eggers, & some assorted mixed breeds.
