Rent-A-Chicken provides eggs for wannabe farmers

 Leslie Suitor's Rent-A-Chicken business out of Leelanau County makes it possible.

Suitor and her husband, Mark, loan hens from spring until the warm weather fades, as late as Thanksgiving.

They drop off two hens, a coop and feeding materials for $250. First-time chicken owners are welcome: The Suitors set up the coop and answer questions on chicken raising 101.

"They're so easy to keep I don't understand why everybody wouldn't have chickens," Suitor told the Traverse City Record-Eagle. "You get the payoff every day they lay eggs. It's like a Christmas present every day."
