Opportunity to Rent The Chicken expands to Connecticut


Do you see your friends post about their chickens and have FOMO (fear of missing out)? Or do you have more chickens then you know what to do with, but could never imagine getting rid of one? We found an egg-cellent opportunity for you! You can now partake in Rent The Chicken. 

Starting in April, customers in Hartford, the Shoreline Area, and beyond can have “farm fresh” eggs in their backyard with Rent The Chicken. Each rental includes everything needed: a portable coop, at least two egg-laying hens, feed for the rental season, and phone and web chat support. Reservations are currently being accepted.

Farmer Joe’s Gardens, LLC has expanded its offering to include Rent The Chicken which offers free delivery to most of Connecticut and anywhere within 50 miles of Wallingford, CT. A delivery fee will be charged for those customers who are located outside of the free delivery areas. Potential customers can call 724-305-0782 or visit our website at for more information.

Rent The Chicken was established near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, by Phillip and Jenn Tompkins in 2013. Rent The Chicken has partnered with more than 40 farmers and homesteaders in the United States and locations in Canada that offer Rent The Chicken as an extension of their farm or homestead. Other available services include Hatch the Chicken, with many location options. 

Farmer Joe’s Gardens, LLC is family owned and operated. Farmer Joe is a fourth generation farmer on the same land, growing the same crops. Joe and Ida were named the National Outstanding Young Farmers of the Year in 2016. They have been hosting chicken workshops since 2012 to introduce folks to the joy of farm fresh eggs and chicken 101. They are egg-cited to join Rent The Chicken to share with others, the joy of keeping chickens not only for the eggs but as fun pets too!
