The joy of finding clean eggs in the nesting boxes ✨🙌🏻. . . Since we installed the French drains and added a bunch of new sand and dirt to the chicken coop this week, our eggs have been exponentially cleaner and the chickens no longer have mud constantly caked all over their feet. It has been dry since we installed the drains, but we are supposed to be getting a rainy wintry mix over the next few days, so that will be the true test of our new French drain system. Although we really aren’t looking forward to multiple days of cold rain, we are excited to see if our drainage intervention actually works! Hope everyone stays warm and dry this weekend! . . #freerangechickens #fresheggs #happinessishomegrown #colorfuleggs #speckledeggs #handgathered #layinghens #hobbyfarm #farmsweetfarm #lifeouthere #simplepleasures #raisingchickens #eggsofinstagram #eggstagram #sharemymucks

Weekend toilet! A lot better than I expected @centralmall_phnompenh in Phnom Penh. In fact, there was everything you could ask for. Should have tried those eggs, especially the pink ones. From the top levels you have a nice view on the surrounding streets and the central market (the yellow building) (September 2016) #toilet #wc #instawc #toilography #toiletsofinstagram #toiletsoftheworld #toiletsofcambodia #cambodiantoilet #cambodia #phnompenh #centralmall #centralmarketphnompenh #colorfuleggs #partneroutfit #centralmallpp #supermarkettoilet #dontsquat #travel #roadtrip #supermarket

I've officially been vegetarian for 3 months, with a 2 week hiatus (travel, hospital, etc.). I am getting the hang of it more every week as I learn how my body reacts to certain foods. . I originally went vegetarian because my husband was getting back-to-back kidney stones. We decided to try cutting meat, and he hasn't had one since. We are also really loving this way of eating, the way it helps us eat better, sleep deeper, bloat less, cut medications...and as an added bonus, our skin looks amazing!

The Frizzle Sisters🌿🐓🥚 Their chicks will be large fowl frizzle Easter eggers as they’re in with the splash ameraucana roo Stevie Ray. . . FYI • I was reading not to put a frizzle with a frizzle for breeding as the offspring will have brittle feathers that break easily, so we won’t do that. The chance of a frizzle chick is 25% while the other chicks carry the gene but will have smooth feathers. . . . #frizzle #opengatefarm #backyardflock #backyardchickens #backyardpoultrymag #happyhens #mypetchicken #farmfresheggs #fresheggsdaily #frizzlechicken #chickensofinstagram #chicks #crazychickenlady #onthefarm #raisingchickens #iamcountryside #countryside #colorfuleggs

I can’t wait to get chickens on the farm!!! #Repost @cupofjoelene with @get_repost ・・・ And just like that, the newest wave of Marans layers have begun. ✨ • All of my nest box stalking paid off beautifully. I was able to sneak a peak at one of my @hardymarans girls in the coop before this lovely new chocolate was laid. 🍫 #getherchocolates #girlslovechocolates • • #backyardpoultrymag #eggbasket #rainboweggs #colorfuleggs #fresheggs #thecopperfeathercoop #eggenvy #fbcm #oliveeggers #iamcountryside #ruralamerica #iamamodernfarmer #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteading #homesteaders #chickenkeeping #chickensofinstagram #backyardchickens #rurallife #countrylife #farmhouse #chickens

I've been focusing on bringing more natural light into the house, and it feels so nice. Eight inches of snow outside, but summer in here 🧡

Wherever you live, there are probably options to buy food from a local farm. This could be produce, meat, milk, eggs and more! • Knowing where your food comes from, how it was raised or grown, and the process of preparing it to come home to you is important. Not only does this support local families and businesses, but also speaks volumes as a consumer as to what your food values are. • We have found a great farm in the Colorado Springs area called Twisted Pines Farm. It’s been great to know we have met the family, seen the animals and are able to ask any question we are curious about. (Not to mentioned the high quality of the food!!) • Changing how you eat for your health can sometimes be as simple as choosing not just what you buy and eat, but where it comes from. Take the time to ask around in your area to find local farmers and quality farming practices. You won’t be disappointed. • #jennasfoodfridays #buylocal #iknowitssaturday #pastureraised #colorfuleggs

Day 4: Still currently stalking the nest boxes and up and coming pullets. No new eggs as of yet, but our older girls still got it goin’ on in there. ✨😍 The chickens have noticed my peeping and if I’m being honest, I’m kinda even creeping myself out. But there’s no stopping now, I’m full blown Peeping Tom until further notice. 😳 • • #thecopperfeathercoop #backyardpoultrymag #iamcountryside #homesteadersofinstagram #iamamodernfarmer #backyardpoultry #chickenkeeping #chickens #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #eggs #fresheggs #farmfresh #eggenvy #rainboweggs #colorfuleggs #homesteadersofamerica #farmher #womenwhofarm #farmlife #smallfarm #farm #homesteader #homestead #rural #ruralamerica #lifeouthere #rurallife #nestbox #chickencoop

Ameraucana vs Easter Egger part 2! So my daughter is holding Hermione. One of the first 4 chickens I purchased from our local feed store and the one that started it all. Hermione was labeled as an Ameraucana. As a chicken newbie, the first thing I did was research the breeds I got. I was so excited when I found out Ameraucanas layed BLUE eggs! I'd never seen THOSE in stores! The more research I did, however, and the more Hermione grew (look at that comb!) the more I was sure she wasn't an Ameraucana, but an Easter Egger. Turns out that all feed store "Ameraucanas" are actually Easter Eggers bred by hatcheries and labeled as "non show quality". For those of you who don't know, an Easter Egger is any mixed breed chicken that has Ameraucana (blue egg dominant gene) heritage. This also means they can have any type of comb, lay any color egg, and have any color feathers, depending on whatever other breeds they have in their heritage. True Ameraucanas: 1. Always lay blue eggs 2. Have a pea comb 3. Have slate blue legs 4. Must conform to a color standard and breed true for that color. 5. Are not sold at a feed store. After discovering this I was disappointed but still excited about the prospect of getting a colorful egg from Hermione... I was so bummed when she layed her first egg and it was creamy WHITE! To this day and 14 chickens later, she's the only EE I have that lays white eggs. Anyone else learn the difference between true Ameraucanas and Easter Eggers the hard way?? 😅 #Ameraucana #ameraucanas #trueAmeraucana #Easteregger #EasterEggers #backyardchickens #colorfuleggs #backyardpoultry #chickensofinstagram #urbanhomestead

Were you ever so sick you didn’t know if you’d ever be well again? I’ve been sick for 8 long days with a Sinus infection....that’s what the Dr said it was. Even on Thanksgiving Day, I was in bed much of the afternoon. My sweet daughter @pennyproudmitchell cooked our meal, and she did a great job. I was happy she was visiting. Finally- today Sunday November 25- I started feeling somewhat normal again. I had a basket of eggs setting on the table that my hubby brought in this morning, and I came up with this idea for Penny @happydaysfarm for #eggvignette #fresheggs #blueeggs #browneggs #pinkisheggs #colorfuleggs #beautifuleggs #eggwreath #TexasFresh #gladtobefeelingbetter

This Thanksgiving I’m grateful I didn’t have to strangle a vicious attack dog to death with my bare hands in order to get fresh-from-the-chicken-butt-farm eggs and instead my sister from another mister @amandafab0311 and her mom left a dozen hanging on the gate for me and my dad to pick up. ♥️♥️♥️ #thanksgiving #family #countryliving #homefortheholidays #food #foodcoma #turkey #stuffing #allthesides #kitchenmayhem but at least we have #colorfuleggs #fresheggs also #chickenbuttsarecute
