If you’re convinced and hoping to live out your own fantasy with chickens and cocktails, Kate has a few pieces of advice. Firstly, do your research and make sure it’s cool with your city and neighbors. “Chickens are loud even if you don’t have a rooster,” she says. Secondly, kick off your first drinking with chickens session with an egg-based cocktail, like a Flip. “It’s just very fitting,” she says. And, thirdly, watch your garnish. “If you’re holding something, they think, ‘Oh, that’s for us.’ You have to be on your toes about it and not abandon your drink at all. They’ll get into it, knock it over and take the garnish,” she says.
When asked what other animals she would be interested in drinking with in the future, Kate is quick to answer. “Goats,” she says. “There have been many conversations between my husband and I about pygmy goats. But it’s probably not a good idea for where we are. But if we ever move to a bigger property, I would probably already have gotten them before we even moved in.” You heard it here, folks.
