When Will A Product Be Back in Stock?
Because we are a small, handmade business run by two women, that means most of our stock is unique and exclusive. There are only so many products we can make at a time; this often leaves items out of stock rather quickly. If you are looking for a product that is out of stock, please wait patiently, and feel free to ask us when we might have more for you to purchase.
Can you make me a special shirt/weaving/embroidery?
We do not currently take on custom orders at this time. Sorry!
When Will My order Arrive?
If you are expecting an order, please allow up to 2 weeks make time before we ship. Most of our handmade items, such as our sewn clothing, is made to order... that means we make it when you order it! Our knit, woven, and embroidered items can take between 3-4 weeks make time. Once items are shipped, they go by USPS Priority Mail, which is 3-5 business days. 20 days if you are overseas. You can read more about shipping on our Terms + Conditions page.

My plants keep dying! help me!
This question pops up frequently in our inbox. All plants are different, and the best way to view them is in a similar way to children. Sometimes they need water, sometimes they don't. It's life on a day to day basis. If you need a more in depth look at how to care for house plants, please check out this blog post.

How did you build your greenhouse?!
Our greenhouse was designed and constructed entirely by Kurt and built in about two months. We are not currently selling the plans to design since it was constructed entirely around the unique, reclaimed windows we found, but you can read all about how it was built in this blog post to get some inspiration! Some building plans are currently in the works for future release.

How Did you pick the types of Chickens that You have?
We looked into which types of chickens were the best for family-friendly and child-friendly pets! There are actually several breeds out there that serve this purpose, but we decided to go with the most docile of breeds that also produce a large amount of eggs throughout the year. You can read our other chicken breed recommendations HERE.
Why Did You use Chicken Wire For Your Coop?
It's not too often, but we have received the comment that using chicken wire for your coop is a bad thing! This is entirely based upon your own preference, but some of the reasons that chicken wire can be a negative aspect to chicken keeping is due to its mild protection against predators. The holes are large enougj for predatory animals to bend and reach through. We decided that we don't have a large predator risk, and we also wanted to save some money. Our chickens' run is very large, and a predator would have to have limbs that are 8+ feet long to reach our chickens from any angle!
How do you Keep Your Chickens from getting in the garden/Pooping on the lawn?
Our garden fence has chicken wire incorporated around the lower half to keep the flock out. As of right now, they have not attempted flying over the fence, though I know many people do experience this. I am sure as soon as one chicken figures it out, the rest will follow suit! I do let them in the garden anyway, from time to time, supervised. They pick at bugs and eat our kale plants, which I don't mind.
As for pooping on the lawn... chickens just do that! It doesn't ruin your lawn. The poo really kind of breaks down quickly. Having chickens walk and peck your lawn is great for aeration, and the poos are considered fertilizer. If you don't like the thought of that, then just don't allow your chickens to free range! You can't really control their bowel movements at all - ha!
How Many Chickens do you have?
We currently have 6 chickens.
Which Breeds of Chicken do you have?
We have two of each breed: Barred Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, and Australorps.
What Do you Feed Your chickens?
I am glad you asked! We are currently raising our chickens organically, and we always will. We get our chickens' feed from a local mill, Professional Proteins, and have found that it works wonders. Hardly any waste! We also feed them snacks like mealworms, whole scratch grains, and our own herbal mixes. You can try making our chicken mixes yourself (Nesting Box Mix / Snack Mix).
How Do Keep Your Chickens from Running Away?
This question always cracks us up, but we totally get it! If you're new to keeping backyard chickens and, like us, live in a residential area how are you supposed to keep them in your yard? We don't let our chickens free range in the yard all day. If we did, then they would be in the neighbors' yards all of the time. We let them out into their caged run for the day and whenever we work outside, let them into the yard. They do a pretty good job of sticking together and in our boundaries all on their own!
