In celebration of my appearance on MARTHA, I have a giveaway contest! This

came in the goody bag at the MARTHA show. I already have one (or course, I mean, how can you resist something so adorable?) So, this one is up for grabs. All you have to do is send an email to me, with “chicken purse” written on the subject line. (You must follow these directions or your entry won’t end up in the drawing!) You don’t have to write a message, but I’d love to hear from you!

One entry per person, please. This contest closes Friday, April 9 at 10 pm EST.

If you don’t win, you can always purchase it from

It’s a gorgeous, sunny, warm day. I’m going outside to plant peas – talk with you later!


  1. What a treat for you and the animals to get out into the sunshine- enjoy!!

  2. I’m looking forward to buying some chicken in the near future… I take care of my handicap mom and brother right now and think maybe a couple of chickens to watch would be great therapy.. I’m really enjoying the web cam… Thank You and going to enter your contest..:-)

  3. Every time I look at this purse I start giggling! It’s delightful!
    So good to see that the Martha crew enjoys a sense of humor, too! Sounds like you & Coco had a marvelous time.

  4. Saw the show today- you did great, and so did Coco/Tillie! Must have been great fun to see all of those pretty breeds.

    • Actually, I had to wait in someone’s office. The guests didn’t get to mingle, and the only time on the set was during our individual rehearsals and then for the taping. You saw more of the birds than I did!

      I was very proud of my little hen. She looked gorgeous and she behaved beautifully. What you didn’t see on the show was that while Martha was talking about the HenCam, Coco was perched on a toy truck – posing perfectly.

  5. I looked at the website of Martha and the first page has the words: HEN CAM.

  6. Can’t wait to watch the tape. I don’t think any of my ladies would be that well behaved. Love the picture of Coco in the motel bathroom. My email should be in your inbox. Thanks for having a give-a-way. Cute hen keepsakes are not as easy to find as rooster ones. Have a great weekend!

  7. I enjoyed your segment on Martha. The purse is great. Love the hen cam.

  8. Saw the show Terry. You and CoCo looked great. Wish you had more time. The show was very informative. Love the purse

  9. I was able to catch the Martha Show and 1AM, yes 1AM. I didn’t care I wanted to see Terry and CoCo. I think you did a great job Terry and Coco was fabulous. I think the chicken purse is awesome—very cute.

  10. I forgot—it’s a rainy cloudy day here. I have yard work to do but it will have to wait til next week. I can’t wait—I’m ready to get started. I love the outdoors.

  11. I loved, loved, LOVED seeing you on the Martha Stewart Show! I wouldn’t have missed it for anything! I already have a chicken purse! When I first got it, I danced it around with my buff orpingtons, and they clucked and scolded. It looks quite realistic!!

  12. just found your blog, missed you on Martha, but will check her site. Love chickens, hope to have a few of my own soon!

  13. Chicken Purse is so cute. I hope to win it! I’m going to try to watch your segment on line.

  14. Hi Terry and other readers of Terry’s Blog,
    Because I live in Australia I dont see Martha’s show in real time but going back to her website this morning I searched to see if there was any videos from the Chicken show, I wanted to post the URL so everyone who didnt see it could, click on the hencam video at the right hand side of the page, there are other stories from the show too, was lovely to get to see your moment of stardom Terry!!

    Kindest Regards
