The Shams, an Irish rock act based in San Francisco, is offering what might quite possibly be one of the most unusual donation incentives of all time.
One prospective Bay Area backer who pledges $1000 or more to the band's Kickstarter campaign will have the option of obtaining a live Rhode Island Red hen from the band's personal chicken coop. The breed is known for being prolific layers of substantial eggs.
Other rewards include keychain/beer openers, stickers and t-shirts and, on the premium end, a limo-equipped night on the town with The Shams. The band hopes to raise at least $7000 to put towards a new album and music video by October 26.
