How to Make Edible Christmas Garland for Your Chickens

We are a week out from Christmas! Do you have all your shopping done? I am actually up to my eyeballs in all things Christmas. But because I don’t have enough to do (insert eyeroll here!) I decided to take a break and make my girls something fun. I didn’t go overboard on decorating the girls’ coop this year, but I did want to spruce it up with some homemade decorations. Edible Christmas garland is a perfect addition to your coop. And the best part? You don’t have to take it down…the girls do all the work!

What you will need:

  • Twine or string

  • Fruits and veggies (I picked my chickens’ favorite!)

  • A needle or a bent paper clip to “thread” the garland

  • Something like a drill or nail to poke a hole through the bigger items like Brussel sprouts (I used a meat syringe because it’s what I found quick!)

Wash all produce. Some people have even used hard boiled eggs which adds beautiful white coloring to your garland as well as added protein for your chickens! I didn’t do that today, but that’s a great option.

Simply thread all of your produce up and go hang it somewhere that your girls can get to. This garland is beautiful, yummy and a boredom buster as well!

Season’s greetings, everyone!
