Mostly (but not All) About the Chicken

Lots of important chicken updates!

Chicken Yard Art

If you signed up for wooden chicken yard art, it’s ready to deliver.

We will be emailing (check your spam folders) texting and calling to find out your address so we can get your chicken to you. Make her as beautiful or wild as you want.

A donation returned in the addressed, stamped envelope helps defray the cost of the wood.

Check out the art so far!
