Giveaway: Poultry in Motion T-Shirt

A few weeks ago, we highlighted a few of our favorite Spring items from Hobby Hill Farm in our Spring Sponsor’s Shopping Guide.  One of the featured items was their embroidered Poultry in Motion baseball cap.  We were delighted this week, when Hobby Hill Farm asked us if we would help launch their new Poultry in Motion t-shirts.  One lucky entrant will receive their very own Poultry in Motion t-shirt just in time for warmer weather.  This t-shirt is sure to be a conversation starter and a wonderful addition to any chicken lover’s wardrobe.

Giveaway: Celebrating Chick Days

One of my favorite times of the year has always been Spring. Somehow I love it even more now because it includes preparing for chicks! Chick Fever is very catchy for chicken keepers. The variety of breeds, the lure of colored eggs and the cuteness of fuzzy day old baby chicks is enough to make one feel absolutely giddy with excitement. Over the years, we have encouraged many beginners to start keeping chickens. If you are thinking about starting out this year, we have created a five part series Guide to Getting Started that covers all the essentials.

This year, Tilly’s Nest has joined up with our sponsor, Manna Pro, to celebrate Chick Days. We are proud to be part of their celebration and join the Chicken Whisperer and My Pet Chicken to have some fun with new and old chicken keepers and promote the joys of keeping chickens. Be sure to visit the Manna Pro Chick Days website for rebates, promotions, educational information and resources. Our flock has relied on Manna Pro’s products and information over the years and I think you will too.

This amazing giveaway includes:
1 large Manna Pro Chick Days yellow t-shirt “Ask me about chicks”
1 bag of medicated Manna Pro chick starter
5 exclusive Manna Pro Chick Days egg cartons
1 exclusive Manna Pro Breeds poster
1 Happy Homesteader decal

Giveaway: Bainbridge Farm Goods Sign

We are pleased to announce our newest sponsor, Bainbridge Farm Goods. We are so happy and excited to have them with us. Off the coast of Washington State lies Bainbridge Island. It is a magical place, close enough to the city yet far enough away live like a farmer. These fellow chicken keepers and gardeners decided to create lovely signs to accent their property. Suddenly, their handcrafted signs were a huge hit. It is easy to see why. They are incredible! Each sign is made with love on Bainbridge Island. The signs are mounted on heavy duty aluminum and are not only weather proof but their brilliant colors are also UV resistant.

I love the idea of putting the signs outside on the chicken coop.

They are so pretty they can even be hung inside to create a focal wall.

Sometimes it’s the unexpected decorations in the garden that make your visit memorable.


Bainbridge Farm Goods has generously donated this sign below for our giveaway. This sweet red sign measures 12″x18″ and would be wonderful hung near your coop, on a fence or in your home. We all know how wonderful fresh eggs taste, especially from happy chickens!

Giveaway: Rise and Shine Travel Mug

We are thrilled to introduce to you our newest sponsor here on Tilly’s Nest.  We would love for you to give a great big welcome to Hobby Hill Farm. We are so happy that they have joined us and that they too, share our passion about animals.  To kick things off, they are hosting a giveaway of this lovely ceramic travel mug featuring this regal roo!   This mug will definitely be your “go to” mug any day of the week.  It can hold both hot and cold beverages and fits into most car cup holders.  We also love that it is dishwasher safe.  It is not only beautiful but easy to use and care for!  Love that!  Here are our top five products that we LOVE from Hobby Hill Farm.

1.  Rooster Coasters.  We love these!  They are so darling and will be the talk of your friends and family when they go to set their drinks down on these spunky roosters.  They are sure to start a conversation and brighten someone’s day.

2.  Wool Chicken Rug.  This is a great rug to place in front of an entry door or in front of the kitchen sink.  I love collecting chicken items that are beautiful and functional.

3.  Rooster Wind chime.  Do you love to garden?  I sure do and I love to accent the garden with lovely found things.  I love the sound of wind chimes and this would look perfect hanging on a deck or in a favorite tree.  Wind chimes near chicken coops are also great at scaring off night time predators.

4.Chicken and Chick Cookie Cutters.  You don’t have to choose!  They have both!  How adorable would these cookies look frosted on the table just in time for Spring?

5. Chicken Themed Recipe Organizer.  If you are like me, you have recipes cut out and shoved here and there within cookbooks, folders and on the counter.  This beautiful album makes organizing these recipes easy and keeps them handy in one place.  This would make a great gift.

Giveaway: The Incredible Egg Scale

We thought that it would be fun to introduce you to our newest sponsor, www.eggcartons.com, with a giveaway.  Have you ever wondered what size eggs your double yolkers would qualify for?  Have you ever wondered about your bantam eggs?  Well, wonder no more, because this amazing scale will not only answer those questions but can also help you sort your eggs.  This scale can weigh in grams and ounces and it makes a great addition to any household that enjoys chickens.  If you have never been to www.eggcartons.com before, it is definitely a must visit site for chickens.  Based here in Massachusetts, everything that you need and then some is just one click away.  Here are my top 5 products from www.eggcartons.com.

1.  Plastic egg cartons.  This is a beautiful way to showcase the eggs that your girls lay.  With a ribbon tied around the box, this is the perfect gift filled with eggs when going over to a friend’s house for a holiday visit.  You can chose from many sizes of egg cartons and for less than a dollar. Plus the more cartons you purchase, the better your price.

2.  Dried meal worms.  These are fabulous tossed out for your girls as a treat.  They are also a great source of protein during molting.  My girls love it when I bring them freshly made oatmeal on cold mornings with meal worms sprinkled on top.  Delicious!

3.  Vitamins and Electrolytes.  Think of this as Gatorade for your chickens.  We always have two waterers in the girls living space and one of them always contains vitamins and electrolytes.  This is an easy way to boost your flock’s immune system and help booster their defenses with daily stressors.  Just a quick premeasured scoop, a quick stir and you are good to go.

4.  Egg Decoys.  Are your girls just starting to lay and not getting the eggs in the nesting boxes? Have you just  changed over to a new coop and want to encourage the girls to feel safe and lay their eggs in the nesting boxes?  Well, try placing a couple of wooden eggs in your nesting boxes.  This is an easy way to drop them a hint.

5.  The Natural History of the Chicken DVD!  I saw this last year on New Years Day.  This is one of the best movies I have ever seen about chickens.  A perfect stocking stuffer for a chicken lover who has and seen just about everything.  Two thumbs up!
