Gifts for chicken lovers: finding the perfect one!
Need a gift for the chicken lover in your life? You've just found it!
There are lots of chicken and rooster (cockerel) gifts out there. So what makes this set so different?
This list was created by a chicken keeper and chicken lover – me! I have all these gifts. Every last one.
So you're not buying products you're unsure about. You can rest easy, knowing that everything I recommend, here and everywhere on my website, is of excellent quality and either incredibly useful for direct use with chickens, or answers a real need in the chicken lover – a "oh please, I must have that!" appeal!
How to find the ideal gift for chicken lovers.
There are two sections on this page: general gifts, which will be suitable whether the occasion is a birthday, anniversary, or a "just because"; and the second section which is seasonally-related gifts – items specific to Christmas.
In both sections, you'll find the less expensive items listed first, followed by the more extravagant.
There are gifts both for the chicken keeper, and for the chickens themselves.
Each link takes you to another page of my blog where I review the product.
In that way, you'll know exactly what you're buying, what its quality is like and how it's useful.
You'll also know it's been tried and tested by an experienced chicken keeper (me!). I only suggest products I've used and loved myself.
Inexpensive gifts, good for any occasion.
If you have chickens, you'll have eggs. And eggs need to be collected.
This apron is specifically made to gather all those delicious, nutritious eggs. But is it well made? How many eggs does it hold? And will the eggs fall out of the pockets?
Based on my personal experience, this is a review of a gift which any chicken keeper will be pleased to receive.

If you have chickens, you also have eggs. It's just the way it is!
The Egg Skelter is a novel and very efficient way of storing all those delicious eggs, and making sure they're eaten in the right order.
They also make a great talking point on your kitchen work surface!
Here's why I love the egg skelter.
From basics about choosing the right breed to the more advanced such as how to plan your garden and planting to sustain your flock, I've reviewed a series of books related to keeping backyard chickens.

Browse to your heart's content until you find the perfect gift!

It saves time, it makes sure the flock always has enough food available, and best of all, it's rodent-proof.
