I finally found out what is wrong with Dummie. Partly due to binge-eating and genetics, the muscles around her crop are stretched and damaged. This means her crop couldn't push food further down. It was causing her weight loss and why she's never laid eggs. Because it's gone on for so long without treatment she still might never lay eggs, and she might have to wear her little bandage forever. Which isn't a terrible thing, but it's also possible that with the bandage now doing the work of her muscles, they can heal. ----- Ignore these ----- #chicken #petchicken #petchickens #livestock ย  #crazychickenlady #cute #alaska #alaskan #backyardchicken #backyardchickens #spoiledchickens #chickensofig #backyardeggs

Weight in... what the best breed? . Me I kinda like several but I am very partial to the Dominique breed. the biggest sweetheart chickens that I know๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ“ . however if I'm being real open, I'm sorta fond of seeing all sorts of different chickens free ranging around the homestead ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŒพ . . . #theupcycledfamily #homestead #homesteading #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #urbanchickens #chickens #hens #chooks #fresheggs #backyardpoultry #freerange #farmlife #farm #freerangechickens #country #countrylife #countryliving #rural #rurallife #farmanimals #pocket_farms #chicken #hen #petchickens

A good rooster does more than just crow in the morning: he looks after his hens and protects the flock. This noble specimen embodied the best of his breed, standing guard over his hens and reigning supreme in the pasture.

I hate to brag, both because it's annoying and because I don't want to jinx my streak...but I have a magical power. I can make missing chickens appear in the pitch dark of night. . I used to be very proud of this power when I was on 5 open acres. But I knew living on 230 mostly wooded acres would put my power to the ultimate test. That's needle in a haystack level stuff. Well, ladies and gentlemen, I'm officially magic. . Since the chickens started free ranging here, there have been a few nights where I had to go looking for a hen after bedtime counts. Hens that had gone broody, I'd look where they liked to hide their eggs and voila! I didn't count that as magic. . But last night was the real deal. I had taken some of my fave birds (which I change my mind about every time I look at one of my other birds, but still) from the protection of the large barn out to sleep in their new shed near the woods' edge. . These, like many of my birds, are wilder breeds with great flight skills and the ability to escape most any fencing. But they want to stay near, so I have to rely on that if I want them to happily free range. . As soon as you put birds in a new spot and set them to free range, they go about re-establishing their hierarchy. Yesterday, the roosters spent the day working on this task, while I spent the day reminding them that I'm the top rooster and won't have it. . Last night was their first night to go back into their new shed for bedtime. But 2 roos thought differently. I saw one run into the woods. And another was just nowhere to be found. . I found the guy in the woods perched motionless in a dense tree. Ha! No match for my magic. But the other. I had no clue where to even start. In the pitch dark. With THOUSANDS of places to hide. . I looked in the woods. In the tall grass. In the brush. And I prayed for his safety. But. I FOUND him. My precious ayam cemani hybrid, with his jet black comb and plumes, and striking white streaks. . Perfectly still in brush over his head. This pic was pure joy before he fell asleep on my lap in the Polaris. I am still so happy, that I truly feel something at work here... #magicalvibes .

Thought the ladies might enjoy a mid-morning snack of fruit from the garden. Cherry tomatoes ๐Ÿ…, grapes ๐Ÿ‡ and blueberries. From how quick they came and the noises they made, I think I was right ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ๐Ÿ” #backyardgarden #snacktime

Haven't done a #MeetmyChickenMonday or #RoosdayTuesday in a while. Meet Shop-Cock-A-Doodle-Doo! This #frogcreekchickabees gets picked on by the other "baby" roosters in the chicken yard so he high tailed it outta' that one coop town and adopted our mechanic shop as his new roost. The mechanics feed him bits of their lunches and Si set him up with his own waterer and feeder bowls in the shop. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธHe (the roo) follows everyone around cluckling away at them, telling them how to do their jobs, inspecting whatever they are working on and waiting for the next snack to be dropped his way as payment for his helpfulness. . Totally can't put this on my husband's biz account because it's so unproffessional to have this going down (even if it is temporary) ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ but I can put it here because y'all are my kind of people and know and love our silly country lovin' ways, right! Right?๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜˜ . If you love this, there is a good chance you will love our little chicken story we wrote, The Chickabees! Go and grab a copy!

Random thought of the day: I'd love to have some backyard chickens!! I wouldn't knit/crochet them tiny sweaters, as this person did ( It's just not my thing. The closest I've gotten to putting clothing on animals is the reflector vest my dog has for nighttime walks/runs! More power to you though, if clothing your pets is something you enjoy and your pet tolerates. We recently had a stay in Niagara Falls, Ontario where the house had backyard chickens. It was really fun for the boys and I to take care of them for a couple of days and interact with them! So this, obviously, fed my interest of caring for some myself. Do you have any chickens? Pros and cons? What might I be in for? (My municipality does allow for them ๐Ÿ˜). #backyardchickens #iloveeggs #scrambledeggs #friedeggs #eggrecipes #petchickens #tinyfarm #intrigued #deepthoughts #randomthoughts #momlife #boymama #ihaveateenager

And so the hot weather continues. Our garden lawn resembles the fur of a coconut. The girls have never known such a hot, dry, arid summer. Theyโ€™re struggling with the high temperatures but theyโ€™re just about managing. We are giving them a daily drenching with the hose pipe to help them cool off. Itโ€™s rare that Iโ€™d ever say this (in fact Iโ€™m not sure Iโ€™ve ever said it) but we really could do with some rain here in the UK! โ˜€๏ธ #heatwave #englishsummer #july #buckinghamshire #blueskies #summer #chickensofinstagram #hensofinstagram #petchickens #petsofinstagram #backyardchickens #chickens #hens #hen #nelly #olivetree #countrylife #countryliving #inthegarden #englishgarden
