Bertha trying to pick an apple
The coop apparently isn’t fancy enough for this hen. Every morning, she escapes through the top of the run to go to the doll house on the front porch.
I was told that your group might like to see my quilt (crosspost from r/quilting). ❤️🐔🐓
Why forage on a half acre when you can go the one place your human doesn't want you to?
After losing almost 20 birds to coyotes and a couple of hawks over the past year, I finally made the plunge and got my girls a bodyguard. Meet Cosmos the Great Pyrenees, future protector of chickens and slayer of coyotes.
One of my silkies just had her first chick.
My favorite Easter Egger chick has the cutest chubbiest face
Backyard chickens? More like backyard chonkins
Our album drops next month. We are Silkie and Smooth.
Barney the chicken likes to escape her living quarters and roam about the garden, but she can't escape my love
Yesterday there was only one. Today...
Might be the most inappropriate box to take her to the vet in.
It's your duty.
Pippa's pretty bum
She thinks she’s a Buff Orpington haha
That B*tch Carole Beakins
Awww! She didn’t recognize her favorite human right away because he got a hair cut!! ❤️
The guy at the feed store gave my uncle “this funny looking hen”, for FREE, that turned out to be a very handsome Aymen Cemani rooster.
Just a girl and her chicken.
We had been planning this for a while, the quarantine certainly gave us the time to make it a reality!
Frog usually doesn’t enjoy being handled unless bribed with lots of sunflower seeds so this was an exciting moment for me 😊
I posted a month ago about someone dropping a two year old hen off with me because they didn’t want a chicken that had never laid an egg. After a month of treating infections and mites, cleaning her up, giving lots of vitamins and protein, she laid the first egg of her life yesterday!
I still love this picture
When you have chickens, eggs will get you through the quarantine
All five of my hens laid an egg in one day for the first time this weekend. Took this photo to commemorate the occasion!
I reminded my chickens that they aren’t “front porch chickens” but “back yard chickens,” and they just clucked at me. How rude.
My chicks are 5 weeks old and looking more beautiful every day...here's one of my Blue Laced Red Wyandottes 😍
My tiny girl Cumin
As promised. All 8 parrots. They are quite heavy. Bonus pics in comments
Are we still doing this? I would like to submit my application for chicken master now.
My husband, the chick magnet
She's beauty, she's grace, she'll peck you in the face
Look at that smile :))
Anyone else get their chicken a xylophone?
Thought y’all might enjoy this painting I finished
Let my four-year-old name our new blue laced red chick. Everyone meet Tomato Pasta
First time chicken owner here, I know it isn’t much but I’m pretty proud of my urban coop.
This is Jolene. She will take your man.
Two weeks ago, I had zero attachment to him and he was getting aggressive to the point of ending up in a pot of dumplings. Now he’s my best bud. It’s amazing what a near death experience does for a critter.
Bought my girls in yesterday as a treat, I think Lola approves
Since the last one went over so well here is 2 more of my parrots.
MY FIRST EGG EVER (I hope the 5 people that see this are as excited as I am)
Behold.. my dream coop!!
Our chickens response to COVID19
Winter egg strike is over (here in Louisiana)
Did one of you lose something?
Just a couple of chickens out on the town.
Puddles apparently taste better
Made the girls a snack table this weekend
Gwen Stefani started producing today and it’s the coolest color I’ve ever seen!
Meet Sedona. She is lovey.
We're gonna build a henhouse...
Keep some chickens they said, free eggs they said!
They're not chicks, but I wanted to share the first two ducklings we've hatched! Indian Runners.
My chicken coop
My 5 week old chicks love to perch on my shoulders to hitch a ride outside to the coop! Anyone else have little shoulder chickens? ❤️
My wife's chickens.
Our backyard chickens apparently want to be house chickens
Little guy came out to say hi
I don’t know why this made me laugh so hard, but it did... My chickens’ first time in snow. The roo took a lap around the space between the garage and the house and noped on back to the coop 😂
Poor Walter not getting any watermelon from the mean raptors
RIP Lucy. I wish I could find a way not to get so attached to my girls. It always breaks my heart to lose one. Lucy was hilarious. She would run up to greet me and would scream if you touched her when she didn't want you to.
Robot puts up with my daughter in exchange for snacks.
What a difference a year makes...
Our mother hen. The oldest and loudest girl in our flock.
my big loaf of a chicken loves to cuddle & fall asleep in my arms ❤️

Most beautiful feathers
I don't have any chickens of my own, this is for all you out there

Stuck at home so I decided to make some chicken art!
Fresh from the coop!
My easter eggers are finally here! This one has the CHUBBIEST cheeks I've ever seen in a chick and I am simultaneously so in love with her and also cannot stop laughing when she looks at me.
4:20 and kicking back
Throwback to when this Mama just had her chicks!
We've had don't kill the chicken practice every day since day 1 with the goal that the girls can safely free range this summer. Today the pups did a great job on the first time outside, unrestrained.
A perfect pairing
Rachel photobombing my great grandma
Pups learning to love birds
For when it's super cold. Pack chickens in a cheap tent, set them up in the garage. Keeps poop and chickens contained.
My girlfriend painted my late rooster Black Phillip for my birthday. We miss you, buddy.
I just can’t stop laughing!
On my last post, another Redditor pointed out that my boy is not likely a true Cemani, but rather a fauxmani. Correction made. I still think he’s gorgeous, as did a lot of you.. so here’s a pic of him mid crow.
When you're trying to herd your flock in the coop at dark and suddenly realize why they're all outside...
Helping with the gardening
Less than 1 week till chicks! Tiny Cumin is a good girl.
Gerty has been working hard on pig mounted technology. The revolution is inevitable.

Tiny’s indignant face after getting busted laying a secret clutch of eggs in my husband’s old project truck.
Shot this photo of one of our Wyandottes yesterday. If chickens grew to 50lbs, no one would leave the house unarmed.
Hey Reddit, How do you like my yards Big Jeffe?
My three silkies felt adventurous yesterday
Look who’s been laying eggs in moms strawberries 🍓
I will never get bored of rainbow eggs! 🌈
RIP Clementine ❤️ I lost Clem suddenly and unexpectedly today. She was fine this morning, then gone a few hours later with no warning. 😭 Clemmy was a curious, friendly bird. She liked to sit on my shoulders and eat snacks out of my hands! She was loved and she will be missed. Fly high sweet bird.
Hello Reddit, my family and I spent a lot of time on our Christmas card and we wanted to share with you. Happy holidays!
I’m officially a chicken mom!
Sitting with my gal by the fire, I’m sure she would love to get used to this 🖤
These smart ladies know that the rain brings up tasty Earth noodles
We call it “The Bird House”. Got a new flock of chicks this year. Can’t wait to put it in use again.
Not my girl. Just love this picture.
I’m so proud of my girl, Cruella! Look at that recovery!

It’s hatch day!!! 3 adorable chicks so far
If you’re gonna have a chicken coop you might as well make it cute! (My Nana’s coop)
New chicken mom and artist. Took a cool picture of my new chicks the other day and decided to recreate it. Thought you guys might like to see it.
Letting the ducks have their fun
One of my Wyandottes was being aggressive so she got a little face mask that only lets her see to the sides. Last night we stuck googly eyes on it.
This is Phyllis. She’s the Guardian of the Coop.
I threw a bunch of leaves in the run to give the girls something to forage through and they love it!
Chicken selfies are the best selfies!
Absolute unit of a silkie, our rooster Wompa. Banana for scale.

Bored at home wood burning
While all The Other Girls are in Molt, Lizzy is Perfect! 🤗
Upgraded my prefab chicken coop to a chicken mansion. So pleased with how it turned out.
I am one of them now
Vulture, our ugliest yet kindest and adorable chicken ❤️
This one chicken waits each night for me to show up and physically put her to bed. 😆❤️🐥
The girls seemed to be laying less eggs in the coup lately, we just figured out why...
That ugly teenage phase hits so much harder in silkies...
Six week portraits. Farmer is coming back for the two roosters this weekend. Guess which ones!
Guess what? Chicken butt!

First day that all four ladies laid!
Golden hour chickens 😍
Not a chicken but he is named Waffles!
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.
Our chickens laid their first egg so I did what any normal chicken lady would do and took a maternity photo.
Found this photo of my weird little flock 7 months ago. They’re literally the best thing in my life
