Chick cuteness overload! Their feed is special organic formula blend with fermentation and soy free! We don't medicate or vaccinate and have high survival rate. We also don't not do Cornish cross cuz they grow too fast for their body. We do freedom rangers which take 10-12 weeks and we don't need to do feed restrictions. We ran out of chicken so I bought Cornish cross from local farmer and what a difference! When I cut them up, their legs were shorter and popped out of joint easily. After raising our other birds for years, we kinda look at those others as freak of nature..lol. They look weird...short legs and bodies for the amount meat on them. But over the years they have been bred that way and bones just can't keep up. Anyways, we have been happy with our birds that take a little longer. Personally I think they taste better too! #babychicks #organic #raisingchickens #homestead #chickenfarmers #chicken #raisingourmeat

Meet Scarface. She earned her nickname by surviving a raccoon attack in which 2 of her friends did not. Now she has a nasty cut down to the skull on the back of her head and has only 1 good eye. She was a happy young hen but now she is weak and terrified of everything. Her fellow hens now literally try to eat her alive when they see her wounds. It will be a long hard road to emotional recovery for scarface... And she still has yet to lay her first egg. This is why i wage war on raccoons. #prayforscarface #scarface #sayhellotomylittlefriend #chickenfarmers #chicken #chickens #hens #thisiswar #raccoon #racoons #egg #eggs #cooptotable

Birthday, holiday, any day, every day, fun greeting cards for "chicken people".... ! * Did you know that there are over 150 different breeds of chickens, or that there are more chickens then humans on the earth? * Also, that the Chicken is the closest living relative to the T. Rex, though thankfully much less frightening~~~~~~~~ #furshouldfly #greetingcards #greetingcardsforsale #cardsfangram #newbrands #chickenlovers #sillychickens #chickenlove #chickengirls #cluckcluckcluck #cluckcluck #chickenfarmers #freerange #freerangeeggs #goodmorninggirls #freshfromthefarm #sendmoremail #sendasmile #justacard #justacardweek #sillycards #smilesformiles #chickenchicken #chickenchickenchicken

Saturday we spent the day breaking down a 27 foot pool and the deck which was one of the hottest days so far. Sunday we spent the morning and evening with a break in the afternoon because it was hotter on Sunday then it was Saturday. Today my husband got an excavator to start leveling off the area for the pool. Our chickens loved the fresh dirt!! #chickenfarmers #backyardchickens #diyer

So today was the day! We processed our very first chickens. We only made it through 12 of the 23 today, because it was about 845 degrees outside! We definitely learned a lot and got better as we went. We are super grateful to these birds. Also, youโ€™ll see Jaxon in a couple of the pictures. We think it is super important for him to be a part of the process. To see where his food comes from, and to show him the proper way things should be done. Lastly, I feel super cool now because I have a bag of chicken feet in my freezer that will soon help me make delicious nutritious chicken stock! #chickens #chickenfarmers #homegrown #organic #cornishcross #meyerhatchery #polyfacefarm

Always a treat to see our dear friend, Susan, of Davidโ€™s Herbs. She saw us coming and lit up- the feelings are mutual. ๐Ÿ’— They raise awesome chickens ๐Ÿ“ (know where your poultry comes from) and I canโ€™t beat her herbs!! ๐Ÿ˜ We could smell them all the way down the walk- I grabbed one of all of them (itโ€™s been a long winter) and Iโ€™m cooking up a storm. Sheโ€™s just the best. Check her out at either market (though sat, they bring the big cooler truck so people can pick up chicken pre-orders or buy on site, if they have any left!) love love love. Thank you Susan! You are carrying us through our no-garden-cuz-we-are-neck-deep-in-projects season. We are so grateful! โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #attitudeofgratitide #liftothersup #farmfriends #chickenfarmers #freerangechickens #farmfresh #realfood #herbsforlife #healingfoods #shoplocal #shopsmall #smallfarm #loveourfarmers #topekaproud

What do you do when the water container malfunctions and all the chicks are covered in nastiness? Assembly line chick bath...in the bathroom. ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜ณ #chickenfarmers #4H

Youโ€™re going to see some old photos showing up in my feed this month as I play along with the #gettoknowahomesteader photo challenge. . This is the cutest chicken coop my hubby ever built imo. He had a business building these for a while. Once we have our own land, there are so many ways to generate income. We canโ€™t wait to be #chickenfarmers again, grow our own #gardenveggies , and preserve our own food. . One of the hardest things for me about living in the camper is no room for me to stock an entire years supply of canned goods and other preserves. My #selfsufficient tendencies will just have to wait until we get our own land.

Well, we did it. We purchased 5 day old laying hens as our first official farm animals here at White Ivy Farmhouse. These 5 lovely ladies are Red Sex Link Hybrids, meaning the males will be white and the females will be a classic red/brown colour. . Iโ€™ll be honest with you, chickens really arenโ€™t my favourite. In fact, having grown up with them they would be my absolute LAST choice in purchase for our little farmhouse. Hereโ€™s the thing though... Jesse REALLY wanted to try out raising chickens, and loves his eggs. So who am I to say no? To be honest, they are pretty cute right now, and seeing him interact with them is adorable! So off we go on this adventure together. Wish us luck! And be sure to share any tips or tricks you may have. . . . #farmhouse #chickenfarmers #chickenowner #layinghens #redsexlink #chickensofinstagram #farmers #hobbyfarm #homestead #homesteading
