Enter Jenn and Phil Tompkins, two fowl fanciers from Freeport, Pa., who understand the sometimes fickle nature of urban chicken owners. In order to put a damper in the number of orphaned this link cluckers flooding sanctuaries, theyve launched a chicken rental service that allows aspiring urban/suburban homesteaders to give it a shot without any sort of long-term commitment. If hen-curious customers discover after the fact that theyre absolutely terrified of birds or if they decide a coop just wouldn’t match the rest of their backyard decor I suppose you could call it chickening out its not a problem at all as the birds are loaners to be returned, no questions asked and with no penalties. If customers fall head over heels and decide that theyre indeed ready for the commitment, they can opt to buy the chickens at the conclusion of the rental period.
