Have you always wanted to enjoy the benefits that owning chickens comes with, but aren't sure you can make the long-term commitment?
Then you'll be happy to hear about the company called Rent The Chicken.
Rent The Chicken is a national company that offers residents of cities across America the opportunity to rent two to four egg-laying hens at a time. This may sound like an odd concept, but the fact is many families are interested in having fresh eggs but don't want the long-term commitment of owning chickens.
With Rent The Chicken, renters are given between two and four egg-laying hens as well as a coop, feed, related equipment, and information on how to care for the chickens. Once everything is set up, a date is scheduled for the company to come and pick up the chickens.
But don't tell the chickens, because they think they're on vacation...
Renters can expect between 8-14 or 16-28 eggs per week depending on their rental package. The best part is, since they're your chickens, you know exactly what they are being fed and the quality of life they are living!
However, what many families found is that once they have chickens, they can't image their life without them. Fortunately, this is something that Rent The Chicken predicted. Families that grow close to their chickens have the opportunity to adopt them after the scheduled time together is complete.
If you're interested in renting your very own roost of chickens, the prices range between $350 and $600, depending on your location and rental package. If you ask us, those are pretty reasonable prices for the joy that chickens can provide!
Enjoy the farm-fresh eggs and feather-y hellos, renters!
