Rent the Chicken (Website) is a new service that rents everything you need to have backyard chickens, without any of the guess work.

The service provides a portable chicken coop, two to four egg-laying hens, 100-200 pounds of feed, food and water dishes, and instructions on how to keep the chickens happy. At the end of the rental, you can choose to adopt the chickens and purchase the supplies, or return them.

Rent the Chickens hens can lay between 8-28 eggs a week, depending on how many birds you sign up for.

The closest Rent the Chickens services to Orlando are in Sarasota and Jacksonville.

Rates change, depending on the vendor providing the hens, but fall between $400 to $700 for two-month windows and the number of chickens.
