Henny+Roo June 2020 Chicken Box Review

Just a heads up: Dizzy passed away this last week. I hatched her myself from a little blue egg I bought on eBay, and my face was the first thing she ever saw. And I am more than a little heartbroken. This month’s review will still feature my girl, Satchel along with a few other friends, but I wanted to let you all know before we get farther along.

Our box comes complete with an info card explaining all of the items arriving this month.

 

Chicken Wisdom by Melissa Caughey – Retail Value $12.99

This is so cute, and made me weirdly emotional! I really think chickens have so much to teach us, and this book of quotes attached to chicken images is really well done and thoughtful. It also came with a folding frame so you can display your favorites.

 

Chicken Banquet Mineral Block, 2 lbs – Retail Value $7.99

I am thrilled such a large bag of treats came so I can spoil Satchel. She certainly deserves some extra love. This mix has all of her faves, such as dried worms, corn, and herb pellets.

 

Here she is foraging through the clovers.

 

Flock Fixer, 5.5 oz – Retail Value $9.99

This is a summertime lifesaver for chickens, especially on the super hot days. I like to think of it as chicken Gatorade! Adding this powder to their water gives them an electrolyte boost, as well as providing prebiotics and probiotics to help digestion.

 

Canvas Coop Cleaning Mask – Retail $9.95

I had to smile when I saw this! Though you could technically wear this out for virus coverage, it is a little porous for that. But that’s ok, because it makes it perfect for wearing on coop cleaning day, when dust and bedding particles get kicked up and super messy.

 

Lavender Epsom Salts, 1 lb

I like to use Epsom salts in the bath, but they are also great for your hen if she becomes egg-bound or is in some other sort of distress. These have a relaxing lavender scent.

 

Chicken Whisperer Magazine – Subscribe here!

I love this magazine! I tend to like the other sort of “homestead” sort of ones too, but this one is totally focused on chickens and ducks. There is loads of fun and helpful info in here for anyone with a flock.

 

Saline Solution and Syringe

This duo is very handy to have in your first aid kit for flushing out injuries or administering meds to your birds. It came with a saline solution you can use to flush out any sort of debris that might end up in a cut or eye.

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. Satch is past the egg-laying age, but she appreciates a fresh “mattress” every month.

Emily sent me this check cloud she snapped a photo of recently. I thought it was perfect for this review.

Chickens are funny little creatures who define enthusiasm. Every morning is a rush to get outside and marvel at how tall the grass had magically grown overnight, find new yummy flowers, and bugs, the BUGS! Literally a scrap of old vegetable found in the compost pile was an epic event and cause to celebrate the most ordinary day as the best day ever. Dizzy had many best days ever and I can be happy because if that.

To some people, it might seem really odd to mourn a chicken like this. But I know you all understand. I am so utterly and forever touched that so many of you also loved her so much and looked forward to seeing her adventures each month. For now, Henny+Roo reviews are going to be paused, but Satchel will get loads of extra attention, love, and treats, so don’t worry. I’ll pass your love and hugs onto her.

Thank you all so, SO much for letting me share them both with you and for being one of the brightest spots of MSA for me, on a very personal level. Thank you.

The Verdict: Henny+Roo was very bittersweet for me this time. I have enjoyed this box so much, and I know Dizzy and Satchel did too. As someone who really thinks everyone should have chickens, this is a must-have subscription box for treating them and yourself as well.

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 August 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.

  5. Dear Megan,

    I cried reading your news about Dizzy and am tearing up even now! I’m so sad. I’m so sorry. We have a girl just like Dizzy (our ‘Princess Peep’). I have to give her extra cuddles tomorrow. I totally get the chicken love.

    You are one of the best mothers a chick or pup could have, and I am sure she had an idyllic life. Sending love to you, Will, Tucker, Piper, Charlie and especially Satchel. Xxxxxx

  6. PLEASE continue to share farm life with us. I grew up on a 40 acre gorgeous farm until I was 12, and I miss it still, so much.

    Please get your hen some young chicks and grow your farm, not cut it back.

    I am so sorry Dizzy died, but love multiplies with small farm animals too. It doesn’t divide, it keeps on growing. 🙂

    Hugs and hopes that you get over this with a renewed love for eggs, chicks, and laying plus more elderly hens. 🙂

  7. Deepest condolences on your loss. The pain is real ;(

  8. I’m so sorry to hear about Dizzy. I have enjoyed these reviews, especially getting to know Dizzy and Satchel! My sister has a little flock and she loves each and every one – each of her girls has a different personality and are no less important than any of her other animal family members. Sending big hugs.

  9. I’m so sorry for your loss ❤❤❤❤❤❤ Always love seeing review with your furry and feathery children.

  10. Megan, I am so sad to hear this. I will keep a good thought for Satchel not being too lonely, although I’m sure she’ll miss her friend. And I will really miss these reviews. Even though I’m not likely to ever get chickens, this was always a review I opened and enjoyed. I hope both you and Satchel are doing alright. Thanks for sharing the girls with all of us.

  11. Megan, in the first picture with your chickens was that fawn real or statue? It looked like Bambi to me! LOL

  12. Umm now I am mourning a chicken too. My condolences. Our animals are our children.

  13. All the love and hugs to you, Megan.

  14. Oh I’m so sad. I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope satchel will be ok since I’m sure she misses her terribly. Dizzy had a great life with lots of love. I’m sure she is looking down on you!

  15. I loved these reviews! Loved seeing your babies. I’m sorry for your loss. It really does feel like losing a child.

    I don’t know much about chickens, but seems you gave her one of the best lives any chicken could ask for.

    I have 3 cats myself, not looking forward to the day we will forever part either in life or death. It’ll hurt for some time.

    Sending over the biggest hugs!! Hang in there and remember it’s Ok not to be Ok all the time. 🌷🌿

  16. I’m so sorry for your loss. I love to read your reviews as I see cute pics of Dizzy and Satchel. Dizzy will be missed. Please take your time and give Satchel my love.

  17. I am so sorry for the loss of Dizzy. I do not own chickens, but this review quickly became my favorite because of the sweet photos of Dizzy and Satchel. Sending you virtual hugs during this difficult time.

  18. I’m so very sorry for your loss of sweet Dizzy! I always love the chicken reviews and pictures.

  19. Megan, I am so, so very sorry about your loss of Dizzy. I only relatively recently discovered this particular review, but it quickly became my favorite and I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one I read. I mourn Dizzy’s loss alongside you. Thank you so much for sharing her and Satchel with us. Big virtual hugs to you.

  20. I’m so sorry for the loss of your friend. I always looked forward to your reviews – especially your photos and descriptions of Dizzy’s and Satchel’s antics. She will be missed. 💕🐔

  21. So sorry to read about Dizzy. She brought a lot of joy to your readers on screen so I can only imagine how much joy she brought to you personally.

  22. Dear Megan, Thank you for having shared your wonderful girls with us. My heart goes out to you at this time of Dizzy’s passing. You clearly loved her as part of your family, and you gave her a wonderful home and environment to live her life to its fullest. Hopefully that and the happy memories you have of her are some comfort to you. Please don’t feel awkward about morning her fully because she was a chicken. . .Love is love! We’d have a much better world if more people were like you. Take care.

  23. So sorry to hear about Dizzy. I loved reading your reviews and looked forward to seeing monthly pictures of Dizzy and Satchel. Sending lot of love!

  24. I’m sorry for your loss. Why are you pausing the subscription if you still have another chicken?

  25. I’ve loved getting a glimpse of you giving the girls their best lives, so very sorry for your loss. Even have only “met” her digitally a handful of times Dizzy was clearly a special bird and your love for her has always been evident!

  26. I am so sorry to hear about Dizzy. She will be missed. I loved reading all about Dizzy and Satchel. That cloud picture is really cool. Thanks for sharing.

  27. So sorry to hear about your sweet Dizzy. I love your Henny & Roo reviews simply for the fun knowledge of what it’s like to own chickens. Hope to see the reviews back someday!

  28. So sorry to hear about Dizzy’s passing. She sounds like a really special friend, and I hope that your fond memories carry you through this difficult time.

  29. I’m sorry to hear about your Dizzy – I currently have a flock of 7 and lost my favorite chicken, Reba, last year, to illness. They all have such unique personalities, it’s easy to get attached. I hope that Satchel does okay without her feathered companion.

  30. Oh, I’m so sorry to hear of Dizzy’s passing! I love reading these reviews and all the cute chicken pictures. Raccoons got into our coop a couple years ago and we lost all ours. People who’ve never had chickens don’t understand how amazing they are and how each one has their own little personality and will talk to you non stop. I’m so sorry for your loss, give Satchel lots of hugs!
