Have You Considered Keeping Backyard Chickens?
Backyard chickens not only deliver daily farm-fresh eggs to you and your family, they also provide an endless source of entertainment and even companionship!
Why Rent? Renting is a great way to "test the waters" to see if keeping backyard chickens is a good fit for your household. Renting also provides a great short term experience without the long term commitment of raising chicks to adulthood, and beyond. Whatever your preference may be, we have some great options for you!
Rent Backyard Hens offers one month (4-week), two month (8-week) and three month (12-week) rental packages that include everything you need to immediately begin enjoying the benefits of backyard hens... and of course those fresh organic "yard to table" eggs!

Each rental includes one portable chicken coop on wheels (a.k.a., a chicken tractor), two adult female egg-laying hens, a poultry feeder and waterer, organic layer feed, and enough coop bedding to last the rental period, all delivered right to your home.
We'll set everything up for you and cover what you'll need to know while caring for your feathered guests. At the end of the rental period, we'll come and pick up the hens, coop, feeder and waterer at no extra charge.

We've had "Ruth" and "Mable" for about a month. The process was very simple. Eric arranged a delivery date and he delivered the chicken coop and run into our backyard. The hens are very social. We love them! They greet us when we go out in our backyard, they actually come running up to us! They follow us around knowing that we enjoy giving them all our veggie scraps. They provide us with two eggs per day, very yummy! It has been such a wonderful experience for my family. An added bonus is that they eat my weeds! Thanks to Eric for the fun farm experience!

Eric gave a master class in chickens - and shared everything I needed to know. He provided everything so it was a stress free experience. When I had questions, Eric responded immediately! There's a wonderful sense of purpose and connection whether it is when I wake up in the morning or come home after work and the chickens come running to greet me. There's something quite idyllic about collecting your eggs and tending to your hens. It’s a very calming influence and meditative watching them clucking and pecking. It’s been an absolute delight renting from Eric and having the opportunity to share and experience the passion he has for the hens.
