If you are a city homesteader like me, you don’t have access to a big farm supply store to get equipment for your chickens. Some of my friends who to live in a places like Portland and Seattle can just go to their local independent nurseries to find chicken keeping and homesteading supplies! But here in Los Angeles? Not so much.
The best feed store near me is a 40 minute trip (one way). So, I sometimes order online.
Where to Order the Best Chicken Keeping Supplies
But if you want one of those newfangled waterers, like the nifty Brite Tap and tank combo…
You need to visit ChickenWaterer.com. I bought one just before the holidays and love it! The lid keeps the water clean and it is easy to refill and hang inside the chicken run area.
Update: The good folks at ChickenWaterer.com saw this write up and are offering any Living Homegrown reader a 15% discount on their entire order through 2/17/13! This is for all products, no limit on order size. Just use the coupon code “LivingHomegrown” when checking out to receive the discount. Yeah!
Another waterer getting a lot of attention is the Chicken Fountain.
And then there are the egg cartons!
Yes, you can ask friends to give you their old cartons (and I do). But I also like to give eggs as gifts and a blank carton with my handwritten words on the top is a nice touch.
I really like the square-style carton from MyPetChicken because I can place a sticker on top if I want to. They are recycled and a decent price ($0.30 ea) Also, you can order just a few at a time. There is no minimum order.
What about you? Do you know of any good online sources you’d like to share?
