Embrace the Suck: A Covid-19 Update at TFC
Embracing the suck is how I will get through this shutdown. And, by "embracing the suck" I mean forcing myself every.day to have a shit-ton of gratitude. You are, by the way, most welcome to use my new favorite unit of measurement when describing your gratitude as well.
Say it a few times out loud. It has a nice ring to it. "Gratitude, I have a shit-ton of it."
AN UPDATE ON BUSINESS OPERATIONS
We will get through this. We have to.
See that photo below? That's me. And, my mom and my husband: and this is why I have a shit ton of gratitude. These are my shelter in place people and the current Treats for Chickens workforce. Because our operational space is limited, it's impossible to have my regular team on-site and be in compliance with social distancing and the 6-foot rule.
And so, the three of us wholeheartedly look forward to welcoming back Team Treats because they are the backbone of how product is made. The regular team, in hindsight, does this job with such grace and ease. As for me, mom and the hubby: we are small, scrappy, totally awkward and dropping the occasional F-bomb [or 12] but we are gratefully getting it done and oh-so thankful for your continued orders. More on that below:
SHIPPING YOUR ORDERS
It's going to happen. I profoundly thank you for it too. But we are headed into being behind on orders and out of stocks are going to happen, albeit for a short time, but it's going to happen. Little by little and bag by bag the shelves will be restocked. Thank you in advance for your continued orders and zen like patience with us.
HOW I HOPE TO HELP
There is a new affiliate program at Treats for Chickens. It went live just the other day. If you have chickens + you love TFC products + you enjoy spreading the word then this is for you. [PS: you don't have to have chickens]. You can earn money when your referrals place an order on the treatsforchickens.com website. For more details Click Here or on the link below.

LAUGH OUT LOUD!!
If you have an Instagram account please give yourself a good laugh and watch NickHeathSport. He's a sports commentator who is out of a job. But, he's taken his talent to the streets videoing and commenting on regular day things. It's pure enjoyment that is worth the watch during these suck-y times. This guy has turned lemons into spiked lemonade!
TIME WELL SPENT, INDEED
Before all hell broke loose in early March I added new products to the website.These are mainly for your pleasure and enjoyment. A few are for your chickens but when you get right down to it: it’s a togetherness kind of thing. Consider these items as mutually beneficial and time well spent with your chickens. Especially the Wishbone Bottle Opener. But this Treat Feeder is pretty special too.

A LITTLE SOMETHING
I couldn't resist these little dishes. Cute, functional and sturdy. It'll be hard to choose just one, right? Take your pick or grab one of each.
