Rentachook manufacturers have applied the ‘try it before you buy it’ concept to urban chicken farming. Never considered keeping chickens before? With Rentachook’s eco-coop package, you can try out chicken farming and see if it’s for you.
The package includes a chicken coop, two hens, a feeder, waterer, food and straw. The idea behind it is to allow people who may not have considered chicken farming or who are wary of such an undertaking to try it out and see if it fits in with their lifestyle.
The package costs 360 Australian dollars. Potential urban chicken farmers can try it out for up to six weeks before making a commitment to keep the hens. The trial period can be extended past six weeks if needed.
If you decide to keep the hens, you’ll be well on your way to becoming an urban chicken farming extraordinaire. If chicken farming’s not right for you, return the package and get back 260 Australian dollars of the money you originally put into it.
If you try it before you buy it and decide that chicken farming is something that fits with your lifestyle, you’ll gain the many benefits of having your own chicken coop: farm fresh eggs, and a pet that eats weeds and turns compost.
The big benefits of the ‘try it before you buy it’ concept as applied to chicken farming is that it encourages people to try keeping an environmentally sustainable pet and thereby produce their own food. Because you can try it before you buy it, the up-front commitment is reduced. This will hopefully spur more people to try out keeping a pet that will benefit them, their community, and the environment.
