What a difference a year makes...
For when it's super cold. Pack chickens in a cheap tent, set them up in the garage. Keeps poop and chickens contained.
This is Phyllis. She’s the Guardian of the Coop.
My retired ex-military Dad got some new chicks this spring and just integrated them into the bigger flock. Here's the update he sent me.
Not my girl. Just love this picture.
Skills developed after years of chicken chasing

I am one of them now

Just picked up a box of fluff butts to add to the flock
Unfortunately, Maurice did not make it through his surgery today. I thought I’d share one of my favorite pictures of him. He was such a mellow and sweet boy. Yeehaw, buddy - I’ll miss you.
They’re hatching! ft. “stuff” for scale because no banana handy.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU FORGOT TO BUY MEALWORMS?!?
They said the age of heroes would never come again.
I posted a pic last night of Hei Hei on his way to to work. This is what he does! In the 10 years of doing animal programs & 30+ of keeping chickens, never had one with such an amazing personality. The kids don’t reach for him, he hops in laps! A special bird that brings lots of smiles & teaches.
Stolen from memes. Its wonderful.

My neighbor has been in the hospital and I didn’t realize no one had been taking care of his chickens. I restocked water, cleaned the coop, kicked out a broody hen, and found 71 eggs.
Egg inside an egg!
We need to talk about boundaries

Painted some lil chickens last night. My life and house is slowly being consumed by these backyard dinosaurs...
Leopard, my 6 year old Easter Egger is slowing down. I think her time might be near. I wanted to make sure everyone knew what a pretty bird she is before she goes.

Every morning I go to let the girls out, every morning ginger follows me back into the house, hops in the dog bed and lays a huge egg then runs over to the dog and clucks in her face
I feel so bad for whichever of my poor chickens laid this monstrosity

You all got anymore of those mealworms?
Made a run for my chickens! They prefer to free range still.
My mom told me about silkies at TSC. I dropped everything and rushed there and brought the last two. Welcome to the family!

We've kept chickens for years and this is the first time a hen has sneaked off and successfully hatched a brood. They are about a week old now. Still never found the nest. Mom is RIR and dad is barred rock.
Chicks are almost 5 weeks, and I'm almost done with the coop... just gotta do some siding and painting

Someone told me you guys would like to see these tiny versions of my chickens.
I was doing a nightly chicken check and panicked for a bit when I saw all 4 hens roosting. I thought she abandoned her chick on the ground, but instead I find out it’s a master percher.
7 months ago you were a wild chicken living in the woods behind the local vet. They gave you to me, you never left, decimated the nicest grass in the chicken yard and now make terrible noises at me because you're brooding hardcore. You's a good chicken Ronnie.
I’m floofy and I knows it
