I grew up out in the country and my grandfather raised chickens. My parents had a few chickens, but nothing like my grandfather.
My grandpa had a chicken pen where the chickens could run around in it and have a grand old time. This was back in the 80s and I have found memories of chasing after those chickens.
He also had crates for the chickens and I always found it amazing when they laid the eggs and my grandfather would gather up a basket full.
Oh I miss those days of childlike wonder!
He had around 20 chickens. The rooster was awesome and when he crowed it was magnificent. Raising chickens like my grandfather was obviously fun for him and it was a pleasure for me to play around with them and feed them.
He would let them out of the cage and they would roam free. I would try and catch one that was running around and it was tough. It's funny, I don't remember them ever going near the road, which was about 60 feet away from them.
If you live out in the country and you've never tried raising chickens, I would strongly suggest giving it a shot. They are entertaining and they provide food. It's a pretty good deal if you ask me.
Have you ever heard of a chicken swing?
If you love chickens get them the chicken swing. If you know someone who has chickens, get them the chicken swing as a gift. This will give the chicken something out of the ordinary to do and you can film it or take pictures of your chicken, and post them on Facebook. I bet dollars to donuts, people will get a laugh out of it.
The name of the company who makes this product is called Fowl Play Products. What a name and how funny.
Note: your chicken might need some training to get use to the chicken swing.
If my grandfather was alive today and still had chickens, he would get a real kick out of the chicken swing. I would have bought it as a gift for him. I gave gifts back then, but nothing like the gifts, I discover on the Internet now.
Back in the 80s there was pranks, gag gifts, and weird products, but today, we have such a crazy and wild collection, it's almost never ending, and that's a good thing!
