Sarah Michelle Gellar is wondering where my toes are. Itโ€™s fall here in zone 9b, which means itโ€™s sometimes under 90 degrees before 10am, which means cute boots. ๐Ÿ˜† โ˜€๏ธ

Good morning! Finally made it home (late) last night and it felt so good sleeping in my own bed again! I had a great time being with my family! Yesterday was my birthday & while I was away my husband built me this chicken coop for two sweet little Barred Rock girls from @little.farm.house. Looking at you & @katiesfarmfreshbuttnuggets for help with raising them ๐Ÿ˜‰ Iโ€™m so excited and I think Finn is too! What should I name them?? Today is a rest day but I have a few wreaths left in the shop as I start working on my Christmas wreaths and garlands that I hope to have available at the beginning of November. Thank you all for your support & happy Sunday!! ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’—

Certainly looks the part, doesn't he? For all his splendour, he's still just a young thing, not quite six months old. So far, he turns tail and beats a very hasty retreat when confronted by the senior cockerel or even most of the senior hens. We call him Flashman, Flashy for short (anyone who has read the novels by George Macdonald Fraser will get this). Hard to believe it's the same animal in the second photo, with the bit of sticking plaster bracing up his spraddle legs.

It's almost the most hysterical time of the year. You can now get our chicken butt ornaments along with a chicken head ornament. They are sold as a set or each one separately.

One of the schools that we work with had a beautiful station set up for Fall photos. I grabbed one of the hens for a quick photo shoot and she was not having any of it.

Here is our first olive egger!!! According to wing sexing it would be a pullet! I hope Iโ€™m right!!! This chick is a cross between a bc marans hen and a golden crele rooster. It was this chick that I had to help to hatch and was bleeding badly. It needed time to recover but now itโ€™s okay ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ Iโ€™m so happy with it!!! . . . . . #gardening #happiness #CountrySideAndFarmLife #alwayslearning #homesteading #nature #happyhomesteading #beautiful #raisingchickens #instachick #babychicksofinstagram #newhatched #hobbyfarmer #cheepcheep #chickenaddiction #๐Ÿฃ #chickenmomma #babychick #eggenvy #ilovechickens #๐Ÿฅ #hatching #hatchingchicks #babychicks #oliveegger #oliveeggerchick #iwantoliveeggsreallybad #oliveeggersofinstagram

The townsfolk grumbled and mumbled. A woman rose her voice and said, โ€All we do is stand around waiting for eggs to appear. We must engage with the chickens. Tell them what WE need and what WE want.โ€ All day yesterday the townsfolk met with the chickens. They learned much! Gathered back in the square they whispered amongst themselves not wanting the chickens to hear. A change was coming. Tomorrow would be a new day. They felt certain! ________________________________________ #funwitheggs #storytime about #eggs staring #backyardchickens #firstegg #stillwaiting #partakeinpike #citygirlcountrygirl #raisingchickens #tobecontinued #moretocome #instastory #whatsthisallabout #headscratcher

Meet Fauna: our pretty little Buckeye. She is the only girl left from our very first flock ๐Ÿฃsheโ€™s very special to us since she is one of our first chickens on this crazy chicken people journey. Unfortunately, she and her previous buckeye siblings have had significant health problems, but we are so grateful that she is still with us almost 3 years later. Over the past few months, we have discovered she has a dysfunctional reproductive system. Therefore, she has experienced life threatening #eggperitonitis twice. The first time we took her to the avian vet they told us that she would most likely pass within a couple of days. They wanted to euthanize her but without doing our own research we werenโ€™t ready for that route yet. With our own thorough research and requests from the vet weโ€™re happy to say we have brought her back twice now from this terrible sickness. She has now been injected with a hormone that shuts down her reproductive system so hopefully we donโ€™t have to experience these issues again and her quality-of-life can remain exceptional. She is the leader of the pack and a strong fighter. She is quite entertaining and full of life. She is a beautiful girl and so photogenic. Often modeling for Melissaโ€˜s jewelry line @tresdesignsjewelry ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜‚ We often find her cruising through the house if the door is left open, she loves attention and thinks she is a part of the dog pack. She would definitely live in the house and be our #househen if she could ๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ . . . . . . #hensofinstagram #henstagram #therealhensofsandiego #fauna #chickenpeople #chickensofinstagram #chickenmodel #suburbiafarm #freyfarm #freyfarms #backyardchickens #freshfromthecoop #happychickens #spoiledchickens #chickenmom #raisingchickens

Took the last of the summer chicks to auction today. They weren't real happy with me about it! I had a lot of white chicks hatch this year so I've decided to change things up for next year and add more colors back into the flock. . I have 2 new porcelain and a partridge so far. Going to add a black trio and some blues also. I think that'll do it. Do you add to your flock regularly?

CHICKEN FIT FRIDAY!!! . Ok.... form is off... itโ€™s hard concentrating on keeping a chicken happy while you are doing a workout!! ๐Ÿคฃ . Form is key to prevent injury. You may want to push harder or lift heavier but if you canโ€™t do it with proper form.... you are setting yourself up for injury. . Many times i canโ€™t keep up with the trainers in the videos. ๐Ÿ˜ณ Iโ€™ll slow it down and do less reps or use less weight to make sure Iโ€™m doing it right. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ . Especially with back issues, elbow bugging me.... ya know.... the normal stuff when you realize 50 is looming..... ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿคฃ . . . . . #chickensofig #chickenlove #chickenpeople #findyourflock #chickensofinstagram #chickensofig #crazychickenlady #chickenlife #poultry #backyardpoultry #ilovemychickens #fresheggsdaily #raisingchickens #hobbyfarms #pethens #workforfit #fitover45 #fitmominspire #fitnessjourney2018 #strongbody #fitnessforlife #fitgirlcode #icandohardthings #accountabilityiskey #fitfromhome

Introducing Morrison๐Ÿ“๐ŸŒฟ He is a black copper marans roo. . . I have narrowed it down to two BCM roos this week | 8.5 mo | Theyโ€™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.... ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ“ . . If youโ€™re looking for a BCM roo PM me I have a couple guys who would love to meet your hens. ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ“๐ŸŒฟ . . #mypetchicken #backyardflock #iamcountryside #blackcoppermarans #marans #rooster #chickens #chickensofinstagram #hatchingeggs #roostertuesday #backyardchickens #backyardpoultrymag #happyhens #raisingchickens #myfarm #crazychickenlady #chickens #colorfuleggs

Should I be worried that my chickens are playing the lottery? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ˜‚ Benny the rooster said that he wants a lifetime supply of Grubblies if his ticket wins the billion dollar prize.
