6th Annual Hug a Chicken Day Celebration

Wow!  It is hard to believe that six years ago I started this event. It seems like yesterday that I was down in Manhattan with the folks from Country Living Magazine . They encouraged me to start a Facebook page for Tilly’s Nest and enter the realm of social media.  Soon after I started my account, I realized how many chicken lovers were out there. It wasn’t long until I decided to create an event celebrating how wonderful chickens can be on so many levels. There was already a world egg, day but what about those girls that laid them? Chicken hugs are the best. It seemed natural to encourage folks to take a day to honor and thank their flock by sharing a chicken hug with them.  Now in our 6th year, I hope to see over 1000 chicken hugs on the Hug a Chicken Day Facebook event page. You are all invited to join us from your very own backyard. Simply post a photo on the event page and enter all these amazing giveaways from the sponsors of this year’s event. With their generosity, you can enter to treat your flock and you too. It is through their generosity that we are able to make this event what it is!  So take a peek at all these amazing giveaways below and for goodness sakes, give your girls a hug from me!

Hug a Chicken Day™

Earlier this month, the world celebrated World Egg Day.  This got me to thinking. Why aren’t we celebrating the chicken?  So easily overlooked by many, it seems fitting to draw attention to these amazing animals.  Chickens not only deliver fresh delicious eggs to our door, but they also make fantastic pets.  They are capable of emotions and bring much joy to my family on so many levels.  I felt that there ought to be a day celebrating the backyard chicken.

During the entire day on November 5th, Hug a Chicken Day™,  people across the globe will be hugging and posting their pictures to this Facebook event.  On this day, please take the time to honor your chickens for all that they provide to your family and the world.  I hope to be joined by fellow chicken keepers in saying thank you.  All are welcome to attend and celebrate.  Last, but not least, mark your calendars.  I think this one might just set some sort of world record.
