Backyard Chicken Supplies

chickensDo you know anyone with chickens? Be sure to share this post with them! If you follow me on Instagram, you might know that we picked up a couple chicks over the weekend.  The egg laying kind, that is.  They’re already laying eggs, and my little boy is in love with checking on the chickens and looking for eggs.  He spends quite a bit of time outside watering them and trying to hold them.  It cracks me up watching him tell the chickens, “Come here, I wanna pet you!”  Anyway, we are in the midst of building our own coop and getting things together.  I live in the middle of nowhere, so I have been ordering a lot of things online, mostly from Amazon.

I just bought this Miller Manufacturing 9814 12-Inch Slide Top Poultry Feeder (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
-it seems like a good deal, and since it’s been discountinued I got a great price on it. It ended up being about $6 after shipping!

If you are starting with chicks, you can score this Miller Manufacturing 9810 Round Jar Galvanized Feeder Base for Birds, 1-Quart
(which attaches to a mason jar) for just $6.38, and it ships free with Amazon Prime.

You can also get it  a little cheaper in red. This Miller Manufacturing 806RED 1-Quart Baby Chick Feeder, Red is $5.91 and ships free as well. Personally, I like the metal one. And people have commented in the reviews that it paints well, too.

If your chickens are a little larger, you can try out this Miller 9112 12lb. Galvanized Hanging Poultry Feeder.    It’s $21.56, but will also ship free with Amazon Prime.  Both of these feeders have great reviews.

And of course, grab a Harris Farms 4220 Plastic Poultry Water Fountain, 5-Quart for just $9.99. Free shipping as well with Amazon Prime.

Amazon has lots of chicken gear! Check out this Happy Hen Treats Ball. It’s just $4.99, and will ship free as an add-on item (if you have $25 of other items that need to be shipped, too).

Depending on how much you love your chicken, you can buy them this Chicken Swing for just $52! HAHA .. you gotta check out the pictures with the chickens on it. It’s hilarious.

Pampers $8 at Dollar General

Pampers DG (Large)

Pampers Swaddlers Diapers are currently being advertised at Dollar General for- $9.50!  There was a mistake in the wording on their part, it says it includes all varieties.  By all varieties, they meant all size 1-size 6 diapers packs.  Not the boxes.   However, $9.50 is still a $1 less than their regular price, or $2.5o less than regular price… and you can do this sale with a $5 off $25.  YOu’re going to need some coupons :) Be sure to print these!

4th of July decor From Dollar Tree – SO CUTE!

4th July decor from dollar tree 1
I stumbled across the most adorable blog, who’s author used Dollar Tree items to make the most adorable 4th of July display.  The blue mason jars were actually a Target score, but the banners and wreath can be made from items from Dollar Tree!  The cute little paper lanterns are also at Dollar Tree!  I am just dying over this display and how cute it is.

Those adorable pinwheels?  Cupcake wrappers from Dollar Tree.  She has a tutorial on how to make them on her blog post HERE.  She added them as a little extra flare to this wreath.  The wreath is a year round decoration that she adds little things to for each holiday.

This banner is also made from cupcake wrappers and leftover doilies.  I have also seen small spools of this twine at Dollar Tree.  I didn’t see any doilies at Dollar Tree right now, but you can score a big pack of them at Wal Mart.
