Holiday Gifts for the Hen Lover in Your Life



Welcome to the
chicken-geek gift list.

Though we have only scratched the surface, have gathered some gift ideas for the chicken lovers in your life.

Some suggestions are very useful for keeping backyard hens--and, more importantly, their caretakers -- happy. And others are just plain fun.

Clicking the images will take you to the relevant websites.

Enjoy, and Happy Holidays from The Smart Chicken Coop.
We haven't seen this pillow cover in person, but it sure is pretty!

Beautiful closeup photos of chickens in all their glory. 

There are many other calendars to browse here.


The Smart Coop Addition is a creative and tasteful extension to your Smart Chicken Coop. It provides room for 4 more hens!

Truly a way to bring your pet hens into the family fold... chicken diapers!
Keep 12 pounds of feed in this poultry gravity feeder. It holds enough grain to feed 4 laying hens up to two weeks.
Grow your own worms with The Worm Factory! It's small and can be kept on your back porch, in the garage or even under your sink! Just throw most of your food scraps in and the worms do the rest. The website we've linked for this product also supplies your starter worms. This is what we use! It's a great way to create a sustainable environment in your yard and the hens will come running when they see you walk to the worm bin!!!!
There is a fabulous organization called Heifer International. In their words...

"You have the power to give a hungry family the training it takes to feed themselves and their children; to give a young girl a chance at an education; to empower a woman to have a voice in her community. Together, we can change the world, one family, one community, at a time. And it all starts with a gift."


Avoid cleaning and refilling your chickens’ water every day. This chicken coop waterer stays clean and hold up to two gallons of water without spoilage for one week or more.

What about a few ultra fancy hens that lay very unusual colors of eggs? My Pet Chicken has a great variety and you can order just a few chicks at a time.
This calendar is printed on linen paper and has beautiful, colorful drawings of roosters. I like this calendar because it also includes a link to backgrounds for your computer.

A very fun idea for differentiating your brown eggs from the plebeian store-bought eggs!


Not only do our Solar Lanterns make it easier to wander out to your coop at night, but they also make an attractive yard ornament. The dusk-to-dawn sensor lets the unit charge all day and light all night.


Perhaps the most impactfull idea on this list is to get your hen lover an automatic hen door opener and closer. No need to get up with the hens or rush home after a nice evening out. There are many on the market, but we like this one from the UK. 


About The Smart Chicken Coop

Their coop was an instant hit, so to meet demand, Shelley launched an online store for backyard chicken keepers. Here you will find free guides, articles, and newsletters to learn everything you need to know about your new chicken coop, how to raise chicks, care for happy hens, and even how to sell your fresh eggs.
