            Possible Transportation Fees
            Our Rental Packages include FREE DELIVERY to most of Connecticut and within 50 miles of Wallingford, CT to include the Greater Hartford and Shoreline Areas. If you live further than 50 miles of Wallingford, CT 06492, you may incur a predetermined yearly transportation fee. For customers outside of our FREE DELIVERY area, please call us at 724-305-0782 for a delivery quote.

            Additional Notes
            Pine Shavings:
            We provide enough nesting materials to start the rental. Nesting materials can be straw, pine shavings, grass clippings, and more. It's a personal choice as many of our renters compost so they want to decide what is going into their compost. If you'd like to use pine shavings as nesting materials and want to avoid trying to finding them throughout the rental period, a bag of pine shavings can be purchased with the rental for $10.

            Give a hand and save: Our coops are about 42" wide and easily roll from on our trailer to most backyards. If your property requires the coop to be lifted over a wall or fence due to your gate being less than 42" wide, we'll need for you to commit a member of your household to help Homestead Ida lift the coop. If for one reason or another a member of your household is not available, a predetermined fee of $40 will be included for both delivery and pick-up and we will make arrangements for Homestead Ida to bring a helper! We also have a limited number of coops that are 30" wide and can be partially assembled on site or fully assembled on site. Partially assembled on site is $40 and fully assembled on site is $60.

            Want The Discount?
            We will credit $50 off of your Rent The Chicken or adoption for every friend referred who Rents The Chicken.  Refer five friends and your Standard Rental Package or Standard Adoption is free!  (That is a $450 discount!) We only credit up to 5 referrals per year per customer.  Credits can never be refunded as cash and can never be used for more than one Rental Season at a time.
