Meet the flock, Part 6: Meet Peony. Peony is one of our Easter Eggers. She is a mixed breed chicken who should lay either blue, green, or brown eggs. Some may call these chickens “Americanas” and mistaken them for the true breed “Ameraucana”, which they are not! She’s still a little too young to know which color her eggs will be but I can’t wait until her first one! #meettheflock #peony #easteregger #flowerchicks #backyardchickens #guessthecolor #cantwait

🔊Peggy’s reaction to meeting the cheeps for the first time has to be one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Also a good reminder of why you keep a wall between your current and new flock until they get used to each other. But still, I’ve never heard any animal so perfectly embody a shocked old lady going, “WHAAAT!?”

The sky right before a storm in Tennessee always amazes me. Some of the most beautiful pictures I’ve ever seen have been taken during that time. On a more rainy 💧 note our Little League games have been rained out for over a week straight because of the rain. My back yard is flooded and my gutters are clogged ☔️ and I’m ready for some sunshine. Sorry to be so whiny but I like going outside once I’m home from work because I’ve got sh*t to do! We’re selling our older Honda and I can’t seem to find a day where it’s not raining to take pictures of the d*mn thing! But the grass is green. Sorry guys. Needed to vent. Anyone else feel that way? * * * * * * * * #haleyhenhouse #haleyhenheard #urbanchickens #cheepcheep #backyardchickens #crazychickenlady #urbanfarming #chickens #farmlife #wannabefarmers #farmingonanacre #lavenderorpingtons #chickensofinstagram #bufforpington #silkies #silkiechickens #polishchicken #frizzlechicken #easteregger #gohomekaren

Walking into #rootuesday like a boss. Here is Foghorn Leghorn. Recently we moved the eggmobile to a new location, but had to do so at late night when Trevor was home from work. Our #eggmobile is an ice fishing house that was converted for the hens to lay/sleep/live in. Since it’s big and heavy we move it with a #bobcat. . . . Anyway, we’re in the dark and one of the Easter eggers was hiding in the woods and not coming out for anything. Sadly, we left her there and hoped for the best at 10 pm. Trevor checked on her the next morning and she came out, unharmed. We are glad Maize and Blue are on the property. Livestock guardian dogs FTW!! . . . You should have heard Foghorn give that hen what for when she returned home! He was not pleased!! I’ve never heard a chicken lecture before, but you definitely could tell from his tone that Daddy wasn’t happy 😆 . . . #foghornleghorn #rooster #roos #chickens #backyardchickens #chickentractor #eggies #easteregger #homesteaders #farmstead #strutting #modernfarmer #lomah

So my new feeding regiment is a success! We give them just enough to eat and a little more in their coop and they’re not wasting nearly as much and spending more time foraging for other things on their own. I’m so glad it’s working out. • • • #monday #mondaymood #mondaymotivation #food #hungry #yummy #chicken #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chickensaspets #petchickens #ameraucana #bufforpington #easteregger #newhampshire #sexlink #fluffy #mypetchicken #mychicken #mychickencoop #backyardchickens #backyardpoultry #backyardpoultrymag #pet #urbanchickens #urbanfarming #clucklife

Æg 👏🏼 Ingen skukhøner og næsten overstået fjer-fældning betyder, at der igen er æg at hente i hønsehuset🐔🔆 Ikke prangende mange (der samlet over flere dage), men nok til at vi er selvforsynende. Æggene er fra flg racer: Brahma, maran, grønlægger, skånsk blomsterhøne, lys sussex og lidt blandet. #organic #økologi #brahma #sussex #maran #grønlægger #easteregger #økologisk #havehøns #skånskeblomsterhøns #æg #eggs #økologi #organic #økologisk #hønsihaven #urbanfarming #chicken #høns #giftfrihave #byhave #selvforsyning #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency

So I haven’t posted a chicken update in a while, but our little babies are really growing up!! As of yesterday, our original 7 chicks are 8 weeks old, and my 4 silkies are 9 weeks old. Their names are Fat Jack, Jet, Freckles, Ginger, Sesame, Cloud, Spot, Storm, Cookie, Porg, and Dot. So far it’s looking like Fat Jack and Jet are gonna grow up to be roosters, and all but one of my silkies (Cookie) are probably boys too 😅 but we love all of them and they love running around in their coop, eating the weeds in Spencer’s backyard, and trying to get on top of everything, feeder included. 😅 it’s been a whirlwind but they’re lovely ❤️ #lifeinlubbock #lifewithchickens #easteregger #silkie

#Eleanor my true #EasterEgger #Chicken. I love her her temperament though she does make herself heard when she disapprove of something or when she wants treats or something specific like such as lettuce or egg shells. I love this girl. 😍

WE GOT OUR FIRST EGG😍😋 laid by our Easter Egger/Americauna mix, she lays a light blue!!!! She has been chirpy and squatting when we pat her, even a bit more affectionate to me since yesterday, so I was hoping....and of course she laid in a corner opposite of the 3 nesting boxes🤣 so happy!!! * #ilovechickens #backyardchickens #farmlife 🚜 #homestead #easteregger #blueeggs

Happy Sunday, y’all!! It’s been an eventful day and week around here! Poor Angel (white & tan) has had a rough week. She wasn’t feeling well the end of the week and had a yucky bottom. So, she had to go for a soak in the tub. She was fine by the afternoon and back to her normal self the next day. This morning though, the poor girl had an owie on her toe. We cleaned it and put some petroleum jelly on it to protect it from the inevitable dirt. About 30 minutes later we found little Doti-corn (Black & white) with a chipped beak. Not to worry though, it’s on the tip and will be alright. Chickens beaks grow throughout their lifetimes, so as it grows she’ll file it down and make it right. It may take time, but she’s spunky and will be just fine. Chickens, not always fun and certainly not glamorous! Sure keeps my first aid knowledge and skills sharp! . . . . . #chickensofinstagram #chickenfirstaid #chickeninjuries #easteregger #dominiquechicken #fall2018 #firstaid #shotoniphone #iphonephotography #portraitmode

After a lovely brunch with @theothercat the girls had a special brunch of their own! I try to keep my household waste to a minimum. One of the ways I do this is by giving my kitchen scraps to my four urban hens. It's nice for them to have variety in their diet and it's nice for me to be less wasteful. Whatever they can't eat goes in the compost. Everybody wins! What do you do to reduce your footprint? #reducereuserecycle #urbanchickens #urbanfarmer #chicken #thegirls #earthdayeveryday #easteregger #oliveegger #rhodeislandred #wastenotwantnot
