About

Family Values and Nothing Wasted

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 soap 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, 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.

Apple Cider and Lemon Rinse

Using a apple cider vinegar rinse will help get rid of extra build-up and oils on the hair and scalp. We recommend doing the hair rinse before you start using our hair products then once every 2 week if needed.
You will want to shampoo as normal and then apply the apple cider vinegar.

Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse Recipe
1/4 cup to 1 cup apple cider vinegar
2 cups water

If your hair is dry, use less apple cider vinegar.
If your hair is more on the oily side, use more apple cider vinegar.

High Porosity hair and Normal Porosity hair benefits from the ACV rinse.

Lemon Rinse
Low porosity hair- Shampoo once. Use 0ne cup of a Lemon rinse ( 1 cup Lemon Juice) put on a shower cap for 5 to 10 min. Then used the conditioner bar.
