Happy Monday! 🌻. . . We had a super productive weekend on the farm 🙌🏻. We spent a ton of time in the garden and did a complete overhaul ripping dead plants out and direct sowing new seeds. We inspected our bee hives, we did all of our usual weekend animal chores, and we built the goats a new structure in their pen that I failed to take any pictures of. We also foraged a bunch of wild blackberries and made some delicious blackberry jam which was quite the treat. We are starting our work week with full hearts, and we are already looking forward to spending this coming weekend on the farm. Have a great week everybody! 🐝💕🌿☀️. . . #farmsweetfarm #happinessishomegrown #farmiswheretheheartis #forageforfood #blackberryjam #fresheggs #freerangechickens #farmfresh #wildflowers #foraging #farmchores #farmloveandgarden #hobbyfarm #lifeouthere #gardening #colorfuleggs #homesteading #homesteadersofamerica #modernhomesteading

I think kids would eat more fruits and veggies if this is how we brought them home! Another dozen packed up for pick up this morning! We still have spots available with a few summer veggies thrown in! Let me know if you’d like some!

It’s Father’s Day, not Easter...one of our hens missed the memo! This is definitely a fist of egg coloring I’ve seen. 😆🤷🏼‍♀️ Not sure what happened in the paint department with this one but it sure is pretty!

Moms of lots know, “failing to prepare, is preparing to fail”. The days that I don’t take the extra time to “prepare” snacks for the kids, are the days that I go to bed EXHAUSTED and ready to sell a kid or two to the black market. Today, I will prevail. . . Daytime snacks are PREPPED. Hard boiled eggs and fresh lemonade, combined with a mid morning chocolate (protein) milk to hold them over. 🍋🐓🍫 . . #todaywillbeagoodday #todaymomwins #todayiwillprevail #momoflots #notforthefaintofheart #hardwork #godswork #momlife #homestead #chickens #colorfuleggs

I am often awestruck by how beautiful eggs are. I have an entire 600 page hard backed book about only eggs. It’s literally called The Book of Eggs. They’re nature’s perfect thing. These specific eggs are from my moms flock ( @chickdeedodah16 if you’re into farm stuff) and her flock of chickens has greatly influenced me in my way of thinking around food sustainability. When you have an animal that can provide so abundantly for your family and can have such a positive effect on how much waste you’re creating it is astounding to me. Chickens are omnivores, and that means the majority of your kitchen scraps can be fed to them. They’ll eat as many bugs as they can possibly find, even little snakes and lizards. Chickens are such helpful animals to have in your backyard. And then you get to enjoy these gorgeous, healthy, fresh eggs that you know exactly how the animals was raised, exactly what it was eating and exactly when those eggs were laid. I am not a vegetarian or a vegan in anyway. However, my families goal is to grow or raise as much of our food as we possibly can and source from local farms that we trust to have ethically raised our food. Obviously that is a process and one that will never be perfect. For me however acquiring a small flock of backyard chickens for our family is a big step towards that goal. What steps towards low waste, non tox, or food sustainability have you made for yourselves or your families? I would love to know your stories and what everyone is doing to reduce their impact. 🥚 🐣 🐥 🐓 Ps. Chicks (hopefully) coming next week! • • • #blog #eggs #egg #chicken #chickens #lowwaste #foodsustainability #backyardchickens #backyardhomestead #urbanhomestead #urbanhomesteading #rainboweggs #oliveegger #eastereggers #farmlife #lowwasteliving #foodporn #colorfuleggs #jax #eatyouryardjax #eatyouryard #lowwaste #backyardflock #friedeggs #jaxfl #growyourownfood #homegrown #backyardpoultry #backyardchicken #flock

I’ve been obsessing over the flower box and the garden so much recently that I realized I’ve been totally slacking on psychotically arranging my favorite eggs and taking pictures of them... what kind of crazy chicken lady am I?! So here’s a little #eggsandblooms for you on this glorious Friday! Enjoy your day all of my fellow crazy chicken ladies! 🌸🌿🐓☀️. @sweetpicklefarm @sevenlittlesilkies @wildfeatherfarm . . . #fresheggs #freerangechickens #colorfuleggs #speckledeggs #crazychickenlady #farmfresh #handgathered #coopsweetcoop #happinessishomegrown #hobbyfarm #farmlifebestlife #farmsweetfarm #blueeggs #rainboweggs #lifeouthere #eggsofinstagram #eggstagram

🌺 Happy Friday!!! 🌺 - We had some scorching hot days here this week and it finally cooled back down. 🤙🏼 We’re supposed to get some good rain here soon and the pastures and grass need it so bad so we’ll take it!! 💦🌱 but then I’m sure summer will be on like donkey Kong so we’re preparing for the long hot summer to come. ☀️ - As we approach summer solstice next week, we have VERY short nights, about 6 hours of darkness right now which is brutal on us because we like our sleep. 🤣 and all of the kids like to stay up partying like it’s 1999. 🎸✨ - - - #eggbasketcollective #eggart #egggoals #backyardpoultrymag #iamcountryside #rainboweggs #eggbasket #farmfresheggs #tastetherainbow #eggrainbow #eatyourcolors #farmtotable #eggenvy #supportlocal #iamyourfarmer #foodphotography #prettysquares #rustymoosefarm #pnwfarm #homesteading #westernwafarm #oliveeggs #beautifulsquares #beautyintheeveryday #countrylivingmag #colorfuleggs #freggles #farmhouse #lifeonthefarm #nutrientdense

I spy a tiny egg! It appears that one of our newest hens has laid an egg and it’s so itty bitty I’m going to guess it’s a silkie egg. Also- we for sure have 2 roos from the batch of 8, they were singing away this morning. Ironically they are the only 2 d’uccle bantams we got. Need to try my luck again and try to get a hen. #tinyegg #smallestegg #chickeneggs #colorfuleggs #silkyegg

Various fairy eggs, early efforts, and misfires of all colors. These were all small so I put them in a Bantam egg carton and how cool would it be to make this real? Like, a kaleidoscope of bantam eggs in so many colors and freckles? Matilda approves, which is good because these are going into her breakfast!

EGGSHELLS. If you eat eggs, you will have eggshells. Someone recently asked me, “What do you do with your eggshells?” Here are my top four eggshell uses: 1. Compost. Yep! If for no other use, I use them in my compost pile near my garden. 2. Plants. I often will grind my eggshells into a fine powder and take a heaping handful and mix it in the soil around my tomato plants and squash. They add natural calcium in the soil and even prevent squash rot during the rainy season. 3. Supplement. Powdered eggshells are a natural calcium supplement for me and my animals. Often I will mix a tablespoon in my food to reduce the risk of calcium deficiency. One huge tablespoon of eggshell powder is the equivalent of 1700 mg of calcium! 4. Chickens. Feed them back to your chickens for added calcium in their diet. Sometimes I grind them, but generally the chickens eat them whole. I highly encourage washing and baking the eggshells or boiling (3 minutes) and drying them before use. When they shells are completely dry, grind them into a fine powder and save them in the cupboard in an air tight container for later use. How do you use your eggshells?

Of the four dark speckled clays in the studio this is by far my favorite. It has just the right amount of speckling in it and throws beautifully. . 🐓 These eggs were collected this morning from our five hens ranging from the ages of 7-9 years old. At one time we had over 40 chickens so this is the smallest group we’ve had. It’s nice that they all get along 😊.

Collected eggs: Layer 1, Continental breeds (Marans, Barnevelders, Welsummers, Faverolles, et al—but what is that green egg doing in there?!); Layer 2, North American, Heritage, and Colonial breeds (Java, Dominiker, Barred Rocks, Legbars, Whitings, Brahmas, Ameraucanas, et al); Layer 3, Mediterranean and Pacific Rim breeds (Penedesencas, Anconas, Spanish, Langshan, Australorp, et al). I love all the work the hens do! 🐓❤️🙏🏻

Our free range lady birds have been locked up for a couple of weeks so that our garden can get established. They definitely are NOT happy about it. But no matter what fencing we put up they seem to find a way back in and they LOVE to dig up my greens. So for now, it lots of chicken scolding for me when I go gather eggs.

🌿We have a black copper marans early hatcher! A whole 24 hrs early. No one else has even pipped yet. So until then, the little monster is stirring up the eggs🌿in this incubator. FYI this is an Incuview., which doesn’t hold a lot of eggs but you can see them hatch beautifully - holds 27, easy to clean, and excellent hatch rates. . . . #hatching #chicks #rainboweggs #eggenvy #colorfuleggs #backyardflock #backyarspoultry #backyardpoultrymag #chickens #marans #ameraucana #iamcountryside #eggs #egg #colorfulbasket #chicks #chick

The garden has been starting to give us bits of radishes and today some garlic scapes. The chickens have been providing our family with an abundance of eggs, there have been so many to share with others and the pigs. . . . . Sharing this #eggvignette with Penny @happydaysfarm

Finally finished the brooder coop and moved the peeps in! Thank you at @ryno284 for undertaking this project with me. All in all it cost around $140 to build which largely included all but the paint, which we already had. The coop is 55 sq feet which is big enough for 3-4 large adults or my 7 babies. The peeps haven’t ventured outside although they’ve poked their heads out the door. #backyardchickens #urbanchickens #urbanfarming #homesteading #chickens #ameraucana #subsistancefarming #colorfuleggs #beekeeping #gardening #diy #homemade #doityourself

Believing in the Easter 🐣 bunny 🐰 is like saying you believe in an over sized, purple bunny 🐰 , pooping colorful eggs 🍳 on your lawn.
