Henny+Roo May 2020 Chicken Box Review
Ready for some chickens?
Time to head outside and open our new Henny+Roo box!
Our box comes complete with an info card explaining all of the items arriving this month.
First up is a big bag of treats! This blend is a mix of flaxseed, barley, buckwheat, sunflower seeds, and loads more. It is filled with essential fatty oils that are great for egg-laying. Since my girls are finally past that prime, they still benefit from these ingredients which promote overall health and give them extra protein! I fed them a handful for some photos then scattered a ton around the yard because smaller bits like this really get them foraging!
Chicken Banquet Mineral Block, 6.17 oz – Retail Value $4.95
A block like this is something I would usually leave in the coop for a midnight snack, but since the day was so pretty we decided to try it out in the grass. This hard block is filled with corn, grain, and worms, all suspended in a calcium-rich base.
Ropavet Poultry Complete, 100 mL – Buy 500 mL for $22.97
This is another mineral-rich supplement meant to be added to your chicken’s water. It also contains probiotics, vitamins, and antioxidants.
Henny+Roo Chicken Keeper’s Remedy Goat Milk Lotion, 2 fl oz – Buy 9 oz for $12.95
This little bottle of lotion smells so nice! Scented with rosemary and lavender, it feels delightful on my dry hands and absorbs easily. It is perfect for my rough hands right now.
Vanilla Air Freshener and Pest Repellent – Buy 5 for $7.95
This is so cute! It is an air freshener for your coop with a strong vanilla scent. Apparently flies hate the scent of vanilla and avoid it, so it is ideal for hanging in your coop or run to cut down on bug traffic. It is also just so cute!
Will is super excited that his fave magazine arrived this month. As I have mentioned before, these tend to be really expensive to buy in the book store or the feed store, so getting one in here is a treat. It is filled with useful info on growing food, taking care of your livestock, and general farmy lifestyle inspiration.
Chubby Mealworm Frass, 2.5 oz – Retail Value $17.99
We have over 50 houseplants in our home, and we like to take good care of them. This is an all-natural fertilizer made from worm frass, which is another term for worm manure! Thankfully, it doesn’t stink and it is super easy to sprinkle into the pots all over the house before watering.
Henny & Roo Mini Hand Sanitizer, 0.5 fl oz
Also included was a tiny little bottle of hand sanitizer with the adorable Henny+Roo logo! This is going straight into my purse.
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. We haven’t seen an egg since last month, so I am thinking my old girls are probably done laying for good. They have faked me out before though, and both love sleeping on these either way, so it is always nice to get a new one!
See you next time!
The Verdict: Henny+Roo was a really nice assortment this month, and full of useful items! The girls loved the treats the most, no surprise there. I appreciated the water additive and the fly tag, as well as the lovely scented lotion and the plant fertilizer. And, of course, Will has a new magazine, so we are all pretty pleased this month!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your first box will be the welcome box followed by the July box. Per Henny+Roo:
Orders placed the 1st – 10th of the month start with a Welcome Box, renew on the 15th, then continue the following month, shipping on or about the 5th of the month. Orders placed the 11th – 31st start with next month’s box.
Value Breakdown: This box costs $39.95, meaning each of the 8 items inside has an average cost of $4.99.
