Gifts for Your Actual Chickens:
What could be a better gift for a chicken lover than, well.....actual chickens?! Of course, before you buy anyone (even a crazy chicken lady) a live animal you should make sure they have the time, space, money to care for them. No matter how much kids love them, you should always double (maybe triple) check with their parents before giving them live chicks, as well.
But, if you have the go ahead, getting actual chickens make some great gifts for your chicken loving friend. You have a few different options you could purchase:
1) New babies
You could buy day old chicks for your chicken lover. You can have chicks shipped or you can find a local chicken breed to purchase from.
Make sure that you know about all the different chicken breeds and choose the breeds that the person you are buying them for will like the most. For example, if they love pet chickens get them a breed like silkie chickens and not a dual purpose breed.
2) Hatching eggs
Another option you can go for is to buy hatching eggs as a gift for a chicken lover. Make sure the person knows how to incubate eggs properly.
3) The Organized Chicken Keeper: A Flock Management System
The Organized Chicken Keeper gift is kinda for both chickens and their keeper. This is the exact system we use to manage our flock of over 100 chickens and stay ahead of any health concerns that may come up. It also includes a free copy of our chicken feed guide soft you can provide your chickens with all the right nutrients and save money without compromising quality.
4) Chicken Swing For Their Chicken Coop
Believe it or not, chickens can get board too. You can help cut their boredom a little bit by giving them some things to do. Hang a chicken swing somewhere in the chicken coop and they will have a blast trying to keep their balance while other chickens try to swing too. They have fun and, honestly, it's also pretty funny to watch!
Gifts for Chicken Farmers
If you know a person who is not just a chicken lover or chicken backyard farmer, but is actually a chicken owner, you may want to go with a more practical or useful chicken gift. Chicken owners are chicken lovers who make a profit with chickens.
An Eco Glow is one of the best gifts for chicken farmers. Young chickens need a heat source and heat lamps can be dangerous and have a short life span. Eco glow's are a radiant heat source to keep your babies safe without using a heat lamp.
A new brooder, rather it be a small premade one or a big wooden chick brooder that you make is a perfect gift for chicken lovers. True chicken lovers and chicken farmers will always have tons of baby chicks running around and having plenty of space for them is really important.
You can splurge if you are buying a gift for a HUGE chicken lover and get them a cabinet incubator so that they can hatch ALL THE CHICKS!
Or, you can be a little more reasonable and get a smaller little incubator so they can hatch some of the chicks 🙂
4) Egg Trays or Egg Apron
You'll need to have items to collect all the eggs your chickens are laying.
5) Egg Cartons
When you raise chickens for fresh eggs you will no doubt break a few. Over time, egg cartons can get pretty nasty and have to be thrown out. Giving a gift like this will please even the most skeptical of chicken keepers.
6) Hand Warmers
If you know a chicken farmer who is selling baby chicks, they will go through a LOT of hand warmers. Hand warmers can be used to transport chicks to their new homes locally OR they can be used when shipping live chicks.
These worksheets could be the best of the gifts for chicken farmers. They can help an aspiring chicken farmer figure out their actual revenue and expenses. They can also help them track goals and grow their business.
Chicken themed gifts:
You can't go wrong with a fun t-shirt for most any occassion. In the realm of chicken theme gifts, chicken theme shirts are probably the top choice. Here are some cool chicken shirts.
2) Coffee mug
Is your chicken lover also a coffee lover? Getting a chicken themed coffee mug is one of the most awesome (and practical) chicken gifts that you can choose.
Ok, so in terms of chicken themed gifts, these socks may be a little less practical and just a little more fun. But, who doesn't like fun?
