Over the years it’s been so great getting to connect with amazing companies that support backyard chicken owners. Chubby Mealworms has been a dear friend to Tilly’s Nest and have been sharing their awesome products with my flock for over 3 years. We look forward to getting their packages in the mail and think you can see why. I cannot tell you how BIG this tub of mealworms is. Today I am excited to announce that one of you will win a 3 pound tub of mealworms in our Chubby Mealworms Giveaway.
I’ve have had the pleasure of partnering with Omlet for the past two years. They have been such a supportive sponsor to me and also very generous with their products. One of my favorite things that I like to do for you all is to review and share their products. You can imagine my delight to find a Qute on the doorstep a few weeks ago. It is the “cutest” hamster cage that I had ever seen! I knew that it would be perfect for my daughter’s friend’s pet hamster, Hammy and I could not wait to share it with her.
Good morning! I have a special treat for you. As you know, I was honored to be one of two essayists for Beth Moon’s new book, Literary Chickens. I was so thrilled to be a part of this project as it celebrates all things chicken. This coffee table size book is for any chicken lover and I am giving away 5 signed copies of Literary Chickens to celebrate the book’s publication this week.
Hello friends and Happy Chick Days! This spring, I wanted to celebrate you! Thank you so much for all of your support, fun and friendship over the years and thank you too for your supporting my newest book, How to Speak Chicken. Earlier this year, I thought to myself, why can’t I reach out to some of my favorite chicken keeping companies and see if we can do a chicken coop giveaway and tons of goodies to one of my followers to celebrate the new book?! Well, they said yes! I am so thrilled that I have been able to partner with some of the very best chicken product companies that I have gotten to know over the years. I cannot contain my excitement to announce one of the biggest chicken coop giveaway prize packages that I have ever seen. One lucky winner will be awarded everything below valued at over $1400.00!
This past spring, one of my newest sponsors, Omlet, sent me one of their chicken fencing kits. Having moved to a new place with more predators and more areas for the girls to get into trouble, they quickly realized that they had a solution to one of my very essential problems. Despite supervising their free-ranging, I was yearning for a way to keep my girls contained in a single area while I could continue to work in the yard nearby. My problem was solved when their fencing arrived on my doorstep.
I am so thrilled to share with you these awesome chicken garden clogs from Backdoorshoes in the U.K. Finally, they are available in the U.S. and I could not be happier! I’ve been wearing them in the garden for a couple of weeks and I absolutely love them. They are different than the garden clogs available in the US.
Join me for the 2017 Country Living Fair next weekend. This year, I’m taking my gardening expertise to the stage and behind the scenes too. We’ve got plenty planned including a workshop where you get to work with me and create a beautiful Country Living themed terrarium of your own, complete with miniature plantings. I’m also presenting on the main stage where I show you all the ins and outs of creating a gorgeous living wreath plus so much more! You are not going to want join me for antiquing, crafting, shopping, eating plenty of delicious food and more.
My family looks a lot like I had always imagined growing up. I have a husband, two kids, and a family dog. But, our family today is a little different than I had imagined twenty years ago. The difference? Our family includes a flock of feather babies! If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that we added chickens to our family after we moved from California to the east coast. The flock has made such a difference to us every day – from our hobbies to our diets and our lifestyle.
If you are like me, you have questions that arise when you keep chickens. When I started meeting the faces behind Purina Poultry, I quickly learned that there are wonderful people behind the brand, like Dr. Patrick Biggs. He’s down to earth and friendly, and I had a moment to sit down and ask Dr. Biggs some of your biggest chicken nutrition questions. Take a peek at what Dr. Biggs, a chicken nutritionist, had to say and learn something new. I did, especially when it comes to feeding roosters.
