May 23 is National Drinking with Chickens Day!


No, we are not making this up. Drinking with Chickens Day is a real thing, founded by Kate Richards in 2019. So spend some quality time with your birds, with your favorite [non-alcoholic] mocktail, cocktail, brew, or bubbly in hand!

This is a national holiday that we can really relate to here at HtR. Mix yourself a “Cooped-up Cocktail” and head to your backyard or patio for Happy Hour. Your chickens will provide the entertainment!

Drinking with Chickens is also a celebration of the farm-to-table / farm-to-glass movement. Points if your liquor is locally sourced or your beer hails from the local brewpub.

“This day should be celebrated by responsibly drinking cocktails/mocktails with your favorite friends (or, hey, alone, if you prefer) in a garden, backyard, farm, vineyard, outdoor bar setting, ideally with chickens milling about (as chickens typically do),” says the founder.
