Rent the Chicken


Rent the Chicken

Vegetable gardens, compost pile, chickens, oh my! Now those are some serious backyard goals, right!? But, what better way for children to learn about the lifecycle of plants and appreciation for their food than by growing and raising it themselves!? And with the weather finally warming up, ground is thawed, and days are getting longer, tis the season to begin to get these projects underway! While the vegetable garden and compost pile are fairly painless, I have to be honest; I don’t know the first thing about how to make a chicken coop or how to raise chickens, lol! But, check this out, you can rent EVERYTHING!!!

Rent the Chicken is a way families are helping families to bring one simple food source closer to their table one rental at a time!

Why “Rent The Chicken”? They provide all of the supplies you need with the rental:  portable chicken coop, two or four egg laying hens, 100-200 pounds of feed (optional non-GMO or Organic feed available), food & water dishes as well as instructions on how to keep your chickens happy! Within two days of the arrival, your chickens will lay eggs ready to use!  These eggs have 1/3 less cholesterol, 1/4 less saturated fats, and 2 times more omega 3 fatty acids than store bought eggs.  Your Rent The Chickens should lay 8-14 or 16-28 eggs per week depending on your Rental Package.  You will know exactly what your chickens eat!

How does it work? They schedule a date to bring to your home a portable coop, two or four chickens that are already laying eggs, and the supplies needed for your rental period.  Chickens produce the most eggs when daylight is at peak. Towards the end of the Rental Period, if you realize that you were born to raise backyard chickens, adopting the chickens and all of their supplies is an option! Otherwise, we will schedule a date towards the end of your Rental to stop by and pick up the rented chickens, coop and supplies.  As soon as the start of the Rental Period comes back around, we schedule a time to bring your chickens back to you and provide you with another season of rental.

Is the Chicken Feed provided organic and non-GMO? We have organic or non-GMO feed available upon request.  Because the cost for the premium food is higher, there is a an up-charge if the organic or non-GMO feed is your preference. A few of our locations only offer non-GMO or organic included with their rentals.

Do I need to have a rooster in order for my chicken to lay eggs? No.  A rooster is only required if you want fertilized eggs which become chicks.

We understand that animals sometimes get ill or predators find crafty ways to have chicken for lunch.  We will replace chickens free of charge within our Free Delivery areas as long as the death of the Rent The Chicken was not due to neglect.  Chickens have been known to live for longer than 10 years.
