Hi there! First off, if you’ve come looking for chocolate covered chicken nuggets, I’m afraid you’re gonna be a little disappointed. We’ve named our shop after one of our beloved Buff Orpington chickens. That’s right! She’s the prettiest little brown chicken, sweet as pie, and a fine egg layer. Don’t you worry, though, you’re still in the right place. I’m sure you’ll find something around here that you’ll like even more than a chocolate chicken nugget. (You know chickens don’t have actual nuggets, right?)
I grew up in a small mountain rancher’s community in Colorado where I learned how to use the resources around me, not waste anything, and work hard. It taught me so much more than just how to preserve and prepare everything under the sun, but also how to appreciate the little things, and not take a single moment for granted.
Now that I’m a grown woman with a family of my own, I’m passing down all those principles to the next generation. Work hard. Be kind. Say please and thank you. Everything you’d expect from a good, God-fearing family. So Etsy is a fine way for me to use a resource for the better good of my home. I started making soaps as a hobby and soon enough the house was full of it. I was giving it away to everyone and their cousin. And then my husband and I realized that if I could sell eggs from my chickens, I could sell soap from my cupboard. No need to give it all away, though I still do to the folks I love.
Nowadays, I’m working on on my new line of Hemp Salves, my husband and my son are involved in the business, too. My husband, known as “Dan the Man” makes all my soap molds, and my son helps me package and ship. In fact, it was my boy that recommended we call ourselves The Chocolate Chicken. We’ve even got the name trademarked. We’re definitely a family business, built on cooperation, love, and yes, chickens. So, have a look around, and help yourself to a handful of good old country homemade, waste-not-want-not, special made soap and shampoo products, made with commitment to quality over quantity and an abundance of love.
