You guys, this is something I have missed so much. We got chickens for the first time when I was about 8, but the last few years we've been without our feathery friends- until this spring. Its been so nice to have fresh eggs again! They each have their own unique personality, I love to watch their antics while I am out in the garden. But now we have to decide what to do with all our eggs! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is your favorite egg recipe? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #RosevineCottageGirls #RosevineCottage #eggs #farmfresh #hobbyfarm #colorfuleggs #backyardchickens #hens #chickenkeeping #backyardpoultry #chickensofinstagram #farm #farmlife #farmlifestyle #country #countryliving #farmliving #poultry #fluffybutt #hobbyfarm #petchickens #bhgpets #backyardpoultry

Little farm updates: the Babbys are doing a great job taming that grass in their paddock; the Blue Marans with the pecked eye is doing better today! 🤞🏻 She’s opened it today—it had been closed for days—and is up and about walking and clucking, so I think Dr Grandma’s ministrations are working!; yesterday’s egg harvest done late last night. We had to go out of town suddenly and didn’t return until after 10. This time of year, with the dwindling daylight hours, production slacks off and the colors are growing a little paler, too. . . . #smallfarm #newfarm #farmlife #roos #roosters #cockerels #pasturedeggs #eggs #colorfuleggs #marans #sickchick #chickens #chickensofinstagram

Introducing Morrison🐓🌿 He is a black copper marans roo. . . I have narrowed it down to two BCM roos this week | 8.5 mo | They’re big, beefy, nice long backs, tails are coming in good, combs are straight, golden eyes. They came from a reputable breeder of the marans club USA and shows them. The two I have chosen are twins, but this guy is better at posing as you can tell.... 🌿🐓 . . If you’re looking for a BCM roo PM me I have a couple guys who would love to meet your hens. 🌿🐓🌿 . . #mypetchicken #backyardflock #iamcountryside #blackcoppermarans #marans #rooster #chickens #chickensofinstagram #hatchingeggs #roostertuesday #backyardchickens #backyardpoultrymag #happyhens #raisingchickens #myfarm #crazychickenlady #chickens #colorfuleggs

The chickens are molting right now. We have 25 birds and yesterday they blessed us with 3 eggs 😱. 3 Eggs ?!?!😩. • Molting is the natural process that generally happens in the fall where chickens are losing and regrowing feathers in order to give them healthy feathers to keep them warm in the winter. Molt can last anywhere from 5-12 weeks and feeding them extra protein during the molt can help them through the stress. Molting takes a lot of energy which is why many will hardly lay at all. • A year and a half ago, when we decided to get chickens, we knew none of this. Our chickens have been both entertaining as well as a learning experience. • What do you want to know about our chickens? I’d love to try to answer any questions you all have. • • • • • • • • #gavinfarms #farmfresheggs #colorfuleggs #backyardpoultry #farmfresh #knowyourfarmer #knowyourfood #farmstead #farmher #farmphotography #realfood #chooselocal #farmsweetfarm #thisisfall #onthefarm #Wisconsin #midwestisbest #thehappynow #iamcountryside #chickensofig #darlingweekend #farmerlife #homesteading #honestfood

Washing and packing eggs for this weekend’s markets. This time of year, the daily haul is less and less, hovering around 2 dozen right now. The colors may be getting a bit more pale, too, as the girls near winter break when they’ll re-up their natural dye. . . . Has anyone else read or know of Patience Gray? I’m listening to a biography of her, author of Honey from a Weed, widely regarded as an incredible food book. I haven’t read it, nor even heard of it. I was searching @audible_com for books on food and this caught my eye. My mission as a farmer is to grow the cleanest, tastiest, most nutrient-dense food in this part of Virginia, so food and foodie biographies are always interesting. Plus, there’s an Italian connection, and a fondness for foraging and wild greens! I wonder if my sister, @mockingbirdcbrg , already knows about this author and her work? . . . #smallfarm #newfarm #eggs #colorfuleggs #chickens #chickensofinstagram #eggs #patiencegray #honeyfromaweed #eggsofinstagram

It has begun. 😑 Today, I shivered myself through all the farm chores and grocery shopping in rainy, 40-something degree weather. I’m very much a cold-natured sissy la-la and feel chilled in anything under 75 degrees. No joke, I’m a human Chihuahua. I blame this on my first 18 years of life being spent in California and Florida. So, here we go. My 6 month long snuggle with our fireplace is starting a little earlier than we expected this year. 🔥 Wah. These butt nuggets sure were warm when I grabbed them out of the nest boxes, though. ✨ • • #fresheggs #eggs #rainboweggs #colorfuleggs #eggenvy #collectingeggs #eggbasketcollective #chickens #chickenkeeping #backyardpoultrymag #iamcountryside #iamamodernfarmer #womenwhofarm #homesteadersofamerica #homesteader #homesteading #farm #farmlife #farmher #rurallife #lifeouthere #littlefarm #countryside #ruralamerica #countryliving #backyardchickens

Fairy eggs are my favorite 😍 Occasionally chickens will lay really weird, tiny eggs. These are sometimes referred to as “fairy eggs” and they generally don’t have a yolk in them. The hen will lay this egg one day and a normal sized egg the next 🥚

Fall is my favorite time of year. 🍂 The leaves are changing. 🌾 The air is getting a crisp coolness. 🍁 Campfires, pumpkins, flannel, love it all. 🎃 And let’s not forget there is college football. What more could somebody want? 🤷🏼‍♀️ .

I cussed Cher out so bad this morning after she ate one of the brown hens eggs and I guess she felt bad... because she gifted us with her first egg today, and it’s GREEN!! My favorite color!! Look at that beauty. I hope she continues to lay these gorgeous little gems. Then our eggs really will be too pretty to eat 💚 #buttfruit #fluffybuttfriday #ilovemychicken #urbanchickens #backyardchicken #backyardchickens #chickencoop #chickensofinstagram #chickensofig #rooster #chicken #eggs #pastureraised #rainboweggs #colorfuleggs

Fruits (and veggies) of garden clean out thus far. That zucchini was hidden under a pile of tomato vines, luckily got to it before it became too large. I'm really surprised how well the broccoli side shoots did. They had gotten a bit small though so I pulled the plant to give to the chickens. Beans are still plentiful, but tapering off. Still more clean out to do, but I'm going to wait since the weather has been so nice and I might get more tomatoes ripening.

The shadows cast through my egg basket made some interesting patterns on my egg haul for the evening. The storm blowing in also helped make the light just right for some pretty egg shots. . One of my young black copper marans started laying today. I really wasn’t expecting them to start laying for a while as they are only 20 weeks old but that girl is a little champ! It’s a pretty deep red brown shade. Would love for her egg to become a few shades darker as she continues to lay.🤞🏻 .

This is one of the Maran eggs placed underneath Sweetie, our Buff Oprington (second photo). Given her name, she’s the most people friendly hen of all my hens. Hope she has a good success rate like her sister Nancy! Can’t wait to have some babies growing up to lay that dark of an egg! One more color towards my rainbow of eggs. 😍 #maran #maranseggs #eggs #chickens #chickensofinstagram #bufforpington #orpingtons #pets #loveforpets #futurefarmer #countryliving #hens #chicks #incubation #hobby #chickenkeeping #colorfuleggs

Pretty House. Pretty Doggo. Pretty Purple Fountain Grass…. Meanwhile, . Out back, there’s a fox mangy sly starving and stalking daily…. . In the barn, up the rain-slicked ramp, the infirmary cage holds a cold stiff barred rock chicken done in by sour crop or mangy starving sly fox bite dunno which…. . In the wetlands, the freshly washed doggo practices her herding art, collecting six kinds of burrs, and thigh high haunches of oozing mud. . Any wonder then that I choose the pretty picture, rue the dead barred rock, but secretly favor the plentiful Welsumer and Americana with eggs of speckle and blue. . Any wonder then that I exalt in my good decisions paid off in basic porch columns doubled for twice the impact, ribbon painted in cottage red, bisecting meh with routed railing panels just a few, azek, everlasting. . . Pretty pictures, but. . . . Just another day on the 150 year old #farmstead

I wish I could say that the pretty blue backdrop you’re all so fond of was intentional, but really it’s just an old school desk from the 1920s we have sitting out on the back porch that’s in a very convenient location for dumping eggs onto when I’m too lazy to figure out where to put them. It’s supposed to be covered in pretty potted porch plants. Instead, eggs. 😳 Lots and lots of eggs. • Ps. Pretty potted porch plants 10x fast...

We got a rooster for our girls. Hoping to hatch out some babies during the winter, and switch up my egg basket a bit. He’s black with a lovely green sheen and he has some brown through his neck. He’s in his bachelor pad across from the ladies; so the girls don’t beat the snot out of him when he’s introduced. He’s an Olive egger from what I know, He does have fluffy cheeks and a beard! . . If he’s nice he will get to stay for awhile! Let’s think of a name! . . #rooster #oliveegger #chicks #chickens #homesteading #colorfuleggs

One of our 2019 goals is to reestablish our colorful egg basket. These are all eggs from our original flock. Do you set goals for your farm? I believe in dreaming, and imagining with our whole heart what we desire for our lives. Because Ephesians 3:20 promises that even what we imagine will be surpassed. Do you dream with God? What are you dreams and goals for 2019? #farmlife #colorfuleggs #prettyeggs #eggbasketcollective #smallfarm #instagramhomesteaders #womenwhofarm #farmher #colorfulegglayers #chickensofig #chickensofinstagram #iamcountryside

Last big tomato harvest. We turned these into sauce and crushed for the rest if the year. Healthy harvest of green beans. I hope I can get at least two more of this size harvest but I'll be happy if the plants can just make seeds for next year. Also got the garlic in the ground today! Some of these cloves were massive! Hoping for some very large heads next year. Also managed to squeeze in another #mushroomhunt to the park. The shaggy parasols are popping! Also got some nice oysters and more birch boletes (from the yard!) __________ . . . #pnwgardening #ediblegarden #frontyardgarden #frontyardharvest #mygardentoday #growfoodnotlawns #grownfromseed #vegetablegarden #musicgarlic #endoftomatoseason #knowyourfood #homemade #preserving #preservingtheseason #mushroomhunting #bolete #backyardmushrooms #mushroomseason #colorfuleggs #backyardchickens #shaggyparasol #mushrooms #foraging #whatdoyoudoafterwork
