Henny+Roo February 2020 Chicken Box Review
Well, look who decided to be social! Green grass is emerging and the hens are excited! I know it has been a little while. I seriously blame these two primadonnas.
We will check in with Satchel and Dizzy a little later on in the review. You know, when the treats make an appearance!
Our box comes complete with an info card explaining all of the items arriving this month.
Farmers’ Helper UltraKibble, 28 oz – Retail Value $8.99
This is like cereal for chickens! The girls were way into these little puffed kibbles. They are a great extra source of protein for the hens while they wait for all the spring and summer bugs to come back out for snacking. They were a lot more enjoyable to handle than the dried worms that normally arrive in this box.
Dizzy always likes to let Satchel take the first taste. Out of politeness or paranoia, I am not sure.
They made quick work of this handful!
I thought Satchel’s comb was looking a wee bit pale on the tips, but this is likely due to age rather than cold. She is an older gal! Treat time is ideal for these sorts of closer examinations that the girls generally have no time or patience for.
Witch Hazel Wipes
These are great wipes to keep around for minor scrapes. Witch Hazel is a natural anti-inflammatory you can use anywhere on a hen other than her eyes!
Brooder Bottle Caps – Retail Value $7.39
These caps are more geared to chicks or injured birds in isolation but are really great to have on hand. They attach to most soda bottles and allow chicks to get to water in a clean fashion. This is also a great way to introduce baby chicks to a dripper system!
Thor’s Forge Chicken Love Sign – Retail Value $4.00
How farmhouse chic is this rustic sign? I think I might save it to place inside the spring wreath I usually hang on the front of the coop!
Just the sugar fix I needed! This lollipop arrived a little broken, but I don’t even care. It was deliciously sweet and shaped like a rooster!
Oh, this is CUTE! This stamp is meant to be used on the fresh eggs that you share with friends and family. It is non-toxic so it just adds an extra element of cuteness to a basket of fresh eggs.
The New Pioneer Magazine
Ahh, Will’s favorite periodical! He absolutely adores when these show up in this box, and I do too, because they are so expensive to buy! This one has loads of spring prep tips which I am sure he will put into action very quickly.
Laying Box Liner
Our last item comes in every box and is a super handy laying box liner. This helps keep your eggs clean after the hens leave them in the elevated boxes they use to lay. Since Satchel has decided she isn’t done quite yet, these are really nice for her to lay eggs on.
Bye for now from Tucker and his girls! See you soon!
The Verdict: Henny+Roo is even more awesome now that I am going to be at home a lot more often. Wandering outside to visit the girls has become a source of enjoyment and stress relief, and our visits are enhanced by this box. The warmer it gets the more time I plan on spending with them.
