Chickens Stories from Our Nest

TV Show Pays Tilly and the Girls a Visit

A few months ago, I was contacted by our town’s local television station.  They were doing a three part series on Backyard Chickens and they asked me if I would like to be part of it.  Of course, I agreed immediately!  I thought that this would be a great way to share how easy keeping backyard chickens really could be, especially for those interested in exploring keeping chickens but not yet ready to take the leap.

On one of the hottest and most humid days in June, the filming crew and T.V. host arrived at Tilly’s Nest for a morning of filming.  Despite the heat, we had great fun.  I was able to introduce the girls, give a tour of the coop and run, answer questions and even talk about my newest adventure beekeeping.

You can see the entire show here.


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

  • Looks like they got her best side lol.

  • What a great interview – it covered the chickens (and the bees) really well; unlike a local TV station of ours that spent half a day with an established gardener, beekeeper, and chickenkeeper, and then showed about five minutes on the air! Great job by Barnstable; I really enjoyed 'seeing' you in person and listening to OysterCracker's conversations 🙂

  • Oh I am so glad I got to see this. Your garden and chickens are lovely and you are even more so. Thanks for letting us know about it. Always love to see other chicken set ups for city living.
