Chicken Gifts

I'm not talking about pint-sized presents for your flock, but I don't mean a 20-piece nugget, either.

This gift guide lies somewhere between, although I wouldn't turn down either of the above. Today's post is for those with a chicken enthusiast on your list, or those who need to pass along shopping ideas for your own poultry obsession. When searching the Internet to add ideas to my own wish list, I clicked into a world of amazing gifts for people who have a few too many feathered friends. Now, I'm sharing! If you're fretting over a last-minute gift for the backyard farmer in your life, here are a few fun ideas:

  1. I have these boots. I love these boots. Anyone who has to walk through mud and/or poop daily will love them, too. They are made by Sloggers and super comfortable. They're also surprisingly easy to slip off when the contents on the bottom don't need to track through the kitchen. There is a cute cow print, too, if you're into that.

  2. This is the first item I added to my Secret Santa wish list, and I 100% endorse it for yours. These are literally chicken fitness socks. You can run like a chicken. You can lift like a chicken. You can lie on the couch like a chicken, munching on popcorn and watching reruns. The possibilities are endless when it comes to chicken legs.

  3. My heart skipped a beat the first time I saw this Barbie on Facebook. And again when three different friends sent it to me {they know me well}. She's not especially blonde, wears plaid, and has a chicken under her arm. She is the Barbie Farmer Career Fashion Doll. I'd imagine the goal of this doll line is to encourage young girls to shoot for their dreams, and this particular one is all my aspirations in a little plastic box. I'm getting close, right?

  4. I have never watched Game of Thrones, but I'd wear this shirt. And also any other funny chicken-themed shirt. I'm not picky, honest.

  5. For your friends who already have their backyard flock under control, I assume they have ample reading time. One of my favorite chicken mamas {I know how this makes me sound} writes the blog Fresh Eggs Daily. She recently released Gardening with Chickens. I'm already in it for the gorgeous photography, but if this book can teach me how my garden and my chickens can live together in harmony and not mass destruction, I'm sold.

We have 10 shopping days left until Christmas and if you're desperate for the perfect gift for your best friend, your mother-in-law, or your middle child who still has an empty present stash {oops}, I can't help you. However, you now have a game plan for anyone who lives for that first fresh egg. You're welcome.

This concludes one bizarre Thursday post. Have a great one, friends!
