Pampered Chickens Live Here is a sign anyone would like to hang in their coop. Face it, we love to pamper and spoil our pets and a treasured hen or rooster falls into this category. It is ok to love and pamper your chickens. They provide you eggs and endless entertainment and love.
If you chickens are unable to free range, yet would like to go out for a walk now and then, you might think about getting them a harness and leash. Once around the block, just so the neighbors can get a good look. Pet strollers work well for those days when your pampered chicken would rather be pushed around the neighborhood. They get a change of scenery and you get a little exercise.
Pampered chickens will love a swing to help relieve boredom in the chicken run. Veggie Treat Balls and Lexit Chicken toys also help to beat the winter blues.Herbs to place in the nesting boxes will really let your hen feel pampered. The scent will let your hen relax and think about spring breezes. You might want to add a little powder to their dust bath to freshen it up for those pampered birds.
If you are interested in having a spa day for your bird, there is toe nail polish for pets. It is non-toxic and can be peeled off. Give your chicken a bath and then blow dry her with a dog blower. This works faster than a blow dryer which is nice if you have a lot of chickens to bath. Give her some chicken charm bling and she will be the belle of the coop.
