Chicken Moms & Dads You Want to Follow on Instagram This Month
There are some super rad chicken moms and dads out there on Instagram, who also happen to be customers!
So here's to highlighting a few of these cool chicken parents for you to follow on the squares this month!
Let's get started!
Hot Off the Nest (@hotoffthenest) is a true chicken momma in every sense of the word. She’s raising a special needs cross beak girl named Crossley who requires syringe feeding 3-4 times a day - now that is dedication, and we love that don't we? Chicken tattoo and all!!
She also has her own breed that she’s created called Moonbeams. Gorgeous black combs & wattles.
And, and ahnnnnd she takes drinking with chickens to a whole new level, yes ma’am!
Tarah Harlin. Another dedicated chicken mom and overall very cool human being is @tarahharlin. She’s also quite the gardener and has a wicked sense of humor.
Garden? With chickens? YES! It's an oasis of heavenly everything and her chickens get almost full-access all.the.time.
Give her a follow. I promise she will not disappoint.
Goose Pond Homestead. @goose.pond.homestead - this chicken momma has over 20 in her flock and you can tell she loves each and every one! You’ll see one of her girls below rocking a very stylish sunflower chicken saddle (a helpful chicken poncho of sorts that protects hens who are a little too popular with the roosters if ya know what I mean, wink wink).
The Hens of Liberty. @thehensofliberty is another IG momma lovingly devoted to her flock, including giving an egg bound girl a little “spa treatment”. She says her girls “bring me sunshine even on rainy days”. Amen sister!
Marie and I are currently working on a few projects behind-the-scenes that will be included in online orders in the coming months.
Salt Goods. @saltgoods. Here’s a chicken momma who’s all about her chickens and homemade pies! I'm a big pie lover so it's a toss up on the reason I'm really following her: pies or chickens? Either or but certainly not for chicken-pie! [I did say that lol].
She says “love me, love my chickens” - we couldn't agree more! And anyone out there rocking a Birkenstock’s tan and loving that summer sunshine is alright with me.
The Dallas Cooper. Not to leave out the chicken Dads we have @thedallascooper a firefighter (thanks for your front-of-the-line devoted service) who clearly loves his flock and his houseplants! He says “his life has gone to the birds” and his motto is “be happy, it drives people crazy”. I love that!
Besides, he has a sweet little pullet that he has affectionately named Dell - and that my friends won this girls heart.
Portland Chickens. And last but certainly not least, we have another dedicated chicken Dad @portlandchickens. He clearly loves his girls and as an accomplished photographer he loves trying to get that perfect chicken photo. Which we all know is no easy feat! And, his chicken coop + run - stylin!
There you have it - take a gander at these awesome chicken accounts on Instagram and who knows... maybe you'll be featured in a future post!
