Buy Chicken on eBay
Yes, Buy Chicken on eBay
At the risk of being labeled substandard, chicken may be ordered online through our favorite auction site. Dedicated programmers and auctioneers toil mercilessly to maintain constant barrages of foul products. Join the fun. Here are just a few of the interesting items we found.
Glass Chicken Hen Baskets
These adorable collectible glass hens accent any country kitchen. Look for a veritable plethora of glass patterns and colors. The Boyd Corporation and the Cambridge Glass Corporation manufactured huge varieties that are still in high demand.
Prices will vary from about $12 to as much as $100 for discontinued colors. Some styles are more collectable than others, but you can always find something to perk up your decor. Fill up a corner hutch or line the kitchen windowsill with a flock of glass hens.
Frozen Chicken Coupons
If you prefer your chicken in edible form, shop eBay for coupons redeemable at your local supermarket. All the name brands such as Tyson and Weaver and Perdue print coupons constantly to tempt you into filling up your shopping cart with their bird parts. Coupon retailing is big business these days: we all want to save a buck or two. Everyone with a newspaper and scissors gets involved. Creating auctions on eBay is very inexpensive: sellers have nothing to lose but their time and any remaining self-respect.
Expect to spend about $5 to obtain 20 coupons for $1 off frozen chicken parts. The return on your money is staggering, if you have a requirement for mega amounts of frozen avian meals.
Smoking may be unhealthy for humans, but the process turns out tasty chickens. You can smoke your birds to bring that authentic smokey flavor loved by everyone attending your backyard bar-b-ques. Look for digital models that take most of the guesswork out of the hard work. Your guests will think you slaved all day over a hot smoker when all you actually did was plug it in and press a few buttons. Go inside and take a nap while miracles of modern technology produce succulent chicken breasts.
Commemorate your adoration for all things chicken with hand-painted paintings available on our favorite online auction site. Look for adorable chickens, poker-playing chickens, stylized chickens and even anthropomorphized chickens painted by skilled artists who also love chickens.
Famous Ukrainian artist and designer Georges Briard painted many chickens. He died in 2005, so don't expect any new output from him. Savvy eBay sellers and buyers continue to pay tribute to his prodigious skills.
Chicken and other poultry often find themselves where they obviously should not be. Depend on great rolls of chicken netting to restrain recalcitrant birds for their own safety. Deploy this stuff in the barnyard or the backyard, wherever chickens wander aimlessly. You are responsible for your foul: they have really small brains and they lose focus easily.
This netting might also be useful for light sports such as badminton or tennis. It's not intended to be hung out as soccer goal netting. Use it wisely.
You can't eat a Webkinz, but kids will climb over each other to get them. They are on sale at department store chains and greeting card stores: you can find even larger selections on our favorite online auction site, eBay.
Look for "Farm White Chicken" and bid on several of them so no child in your life will feel left out. This webKinz comes in two sizes: Lil' Kinz and Regular Size. You will need both.
WebKinz toys include a coupon enabling the owner to register the pet on a web site and play games there. Some auctions will include the coupon, some not.
Evidently you don't know what this is.
Fear not: it you needed it, you'd probably know it. Some things in this world are rather specialized. We can't be expert in everything. These items without question provide crucial functionality along a narrow chicken-related niche. As far as we can tell.
Your chickens will thank you for the consideration. They can't speak, obviously, but their body language will make their point. Every little clucker benefits from deployment of whatever these things are. It doesn't take much to make a chicken happy, but this is it.
Chicken Bobble Head
Bobbling technology can be adapted to wide varieties of social applications. Dedicated teams of mechanical engineers and graphic designers work in concert to produce lifelike likenesses. Every major league sports team memorializes popular players, coaches, mascots, broadcasters, and popcorn vendors via oversize spring-mounted heads.
Chickens are not immune to the bobble head craze. Look to our favorite online auction site, eBay, for innumerable examples of bobbling birds. You must choose, but choose wisely.
