Just Fowling Around has been making our list and checking it twice for our own wish lists and for our chicken friends. We thought it would be fun to share some of the unique things we located online that you also may enjoy or want on your own wish lists as we approach the countdown to Christmas. These items also make great year round gifts for the chicken lovers in your life. Please find the links throughout the text and at the bottom for those items of interest.
One thing we think is very important to all chicken keepers is protection from predators, and an affordable way of alerting us that predators are in the area. Nite Guard® is one alerting system that is solar powered and does the job with great reviews. We use the Nite Guard here at JFA and can definitely say they do work to deter predators. Nite Guard Solar NG-001 Predator Control Light, Single Pack
We love the egg gathering baskets and they can be used as a frame for your own living display. So be sure to order plenty for gift projects as well. Refer to my tutorial for making your own Hen n' Chicks living display with an egg basket. http://justfowlingaround.weebly.com/earth-friendly-projects/category/hens-n-chicks-chicken-basket
What about our very own Just Fowling Around Egg Gathering Apron? These are great not just for gathering eggs, but perfect for the Gourmet Chef in your household. Bro loves the deep pockets in this apron to hold not only eggs, but his notebook and writing tools and camera while he's out tending the birds.
Chicken signs are a fun display indoors or out, on the Chicken coop or wherever you please. Check the links below for some of our favorites.
If you're just thinking about raising a few chickens or other fowl, or have the need to add another coop, this is a Deluxe style coop that is affordable. Not all of us have the skills or materials to build our own coop, so we are always on the look out for quality inexpensive coops to share with you. http://www.efowl.com/Farm_House_Chicken_Hutch_p300-0006.htm&Click=35630/
For decorative yard enhancement, the Large Metal Rooster is ideal for the chicken enthusiasts. This is one we can enjoy to grace our chicken yard, entry door or garden. See the link below.
Every winter, no matter how prepared, we run into the problem of freezing waterers. We've looked long and hard at options to keep our chickens supplied with fresh, free flowing water and this hose definitely makes the winter water issue easier for us. If you have a lot of chickens, it's not cost effect to have heated waterers, but with heated hoses, it's likely more economical if you have other livestock as well. K&H Thermo-Hose PVC, 40-Foot
A couple of ideas for stocking stuffers are an egg candler and mouse pad for chicken lovers. The candler has a bright LED light to make it easier to see the development and movement of the chicks. Candling the eggs is not an exact science, but using one is a fun and educational tool as children await chicks to hatch. Remember colored eggs and dark brown eggs are very difficult to candle.

Who doesn't need a chicken family mouse pad? We know many are now using their cell phones as their internet connection, but we here at JFA still use our computers as our primary connection and no doubt many others do as well. Chicken Family Mouse Pad, Mousepad (Birds Mouse Pad)
I have a set of the rooster measuring spoons. Quality through and through. You'll see these in many of my recipe posts on our website. 4 piece Ganz Rooster Measuring Spoon Set
I love using placemats, I not only use them on the dining and breakfast table, but I also use them on end tables to set a coffee mug on or a lamp that may scratch the surface of furniture. Many of my photos are seen with the use of placemats. You'll find a link below for a nice set that will fit into many types of decor.
A gift card is always useful when you have no idea what to purchase for an individual on your list. There are so many items to select from on Amazon, that without doubt your gift card will be used for something your recipient has been wanting. Books, Tools, Household Goods, Farm and Pet supplies, Clothing and Boots as well as all kinds of Electronics. Amazon.com Snowflake Gift Card Tin - $50
There's even a free application available for chicken coop plans for those of you with Android devices. Whether you are a beginner at raising chickens or need to add on to your current structure, you may find ideas and plans to complete your projects. Build Your Own Chicken Coop

We have compiled a list of books and magazine publications that we recommend and have been suggested by many of our followers. Books and magazines always make great gift items year round. One book we highly recommend is Merck Veterinary Manual. The Merck Veterinary Manual. It covers fowl and other livestock as well as domestic dogs and cats. This publication is tried and true and a comprehensive guide to troubleshooting health issues in the poultry flocks. Please Refer to those links here: http://justfowlingaround.weebly.com/book-and-magazine-recommendations.html
