PECKISH? -| One of my #silkies has a problem with her crop. It's not working so food is not passing from her crop through to her digestive tract. Its starting to turn sour so she's been for a visit to the Vet who has partially drained it. She's had an injection ๐Ÿ’‰to stimulate her digestive muscles and for now she's on soft foods. I'm hoping she can bounce back really soon. . ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป #AllIWantForChristmas is a #happy #healthy Pom Pom ๐Ÿค . #oats #chickstarter #mealworms #applecidervinegar #probiotics

Treat time! They all come running! They got some meal worms too; which is really what they were waiting for. It was a nice day today, so they were across the road digging up the neighbors dirt. I think they were finding some grapes that had fallen off the dried up Concord grape vines. Iโ€™m always nervous that theyโ€™re going to get ran over.. thatโ€™s how one of our runner ducks died...๐Ÿ’” #freerangebirds #raisingchickens #fresheggsdaily #lovemyflock #farmlife #minifarm #treattime #chickenlady #homestead #chickenmom #chickensofinstagram #goldenlacedwyandotte #barredrock #brahamachicken #cochinchicken #lovemychickens

The chicken swing is solid! I have had it up since October and not one chicken has tried it lol. The other day L said he wanted to swing, I told him sure go ahead! At least itโ€™s getting some use! Today is also Lโ€™s 3rd birthday! Itโ€™s a movie and baking cake day! #justaswingin #chickenswing #happybirthday #birthdayboy #backyardflock #farm #countryliving #poultrylife #chickens #chicken #backyardchickens #chickenfarming #hens #layer #pullets #rooster #chickensofinstagram #chickencoop #raisingchickens #freerangechickens

The best tip I could give anyone when raising chickens is adding a splash of apple cider vinegar (about 1tbsp to every litre) and a dash of thyme (about 1tsp per litre) to their water.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Thyme acts as a natural antibiotic and boosts the immune system and ACV is full of nutrients and trace minerals and acts as a dewormer as well!โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Aside from what everyone claims, I just know my hens do way better when I add the above to their water. They also seem to really enjoy the taste and it encourages them to drink enough water!โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #farm #homesteading #food #farming #growyourownfood #countryliving #circleoflife #eggs #nature #getoutside #chickens #farmfresheggs #naturesmultivitamin #animalhusbandry #raisinganimals #healthychickens #raisingchickens #applecidervinegar #thyme #water #natural #health #acv #holistic

The littles finally crossed the road into a different part of the yard! Theyโ€™ve been mostly sticking close to the coop but I guess they decided to branch out. Still trying to get them to easily come for treats when called for when I need to put them to bed early. Itโ€™s a work in progress.

Some mornings you just donโ€™t want to wake up.... ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด . My chicks are a little over a month old now. Iโ€™ve been putting them outside with the big hens (in a separate cage) the last few days but bringing them in at night because itโ€™s been in the 40s. That cold snap is over now, so last night was their last one in the house. Time to grow up! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿฃ . . . . . . . . . . . . #goodmorning #hens #riseandshine #morningstruggles #sleeping #raisingchickens #chicks #chickens #babychicks #babychickens #peeps #urbanfarming #farmgirl #homesteadlife #homesteading #chickensaspets #backyardchickens #iamcountryside #mypetchicken #ilovemychickens #backyardpoultry #chooks #sleepy #happyhomesteading #chickensaspets #instachicken #prettybird #babybirds #humpday #adorableanimals #mohawk

Mornings like this are the best - when the family can be together before we go off to our other tasks. The hens like the attention (FOOD) too.

Our next batch of layers are starting to lay the cutest little eggs around the chicken coop. The small eggs (on the outside) are both from Olive Eggers, bred to lay olive green eggs. I'm more than pleased with variety in color, including the brown speckled egg. The olive eggers would be due to start laying around Christmas so this feels like an early Christmas present.๐ŸฅšWe are catching up to all of you with the gorgeous #eggbasketcollective batches of eggs. ๐Ÿ˜

Reiki my little silkie roo has really stepped up his rooster game! For a long time he was content to sit in my lap and watch the world go by, but now heโ€™s become quite the ladyโ€™s man and a bit of a brawler too! ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ’ฅ Hereโ€™s Reiki romancing my mean BCM girls who think heโ€™s the bees knees ๐Ÿ˜ and swipe to see my two little fluff ball silkie roos re-enacting their version of the fight scene from Westside Story with some curious turkey onlookers. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ‘Š Donโ€™t worry, no serious damage was done and the boys seem to have worked things out... mostly. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sharing for the final #redwattlewednesday of the year hosted by my sweet friend Janice @rogerscreekfarm.

PART TWO. Mixing baby chicken of different ages. It's been month since the first colony of baby chicken haching. This is the latest video of them. . Walaupun sudah musimnya hujan, tapi saya beranikan untuk memetaskan telur telur dari beberapa indukan. Ya tentunya dengan sedikit bantuan racikan herbal (ada di blog) untuk jaga kondisi badan anakan ayam serta induknya. Sekarang sudah sebulan, selalu ada progres ditiap harinya. Seperti ini wujud mereka yg awalnya tanpa bulu sayap hingga sekarang sudah lebat dan makin keliatan para calon pejantan dan betina. ยค ยค ยค #dailychicken #Chickens #raisingchickens #chickencoop #poultry #farm #farming #farmer #backyardchicken #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #urbanchickens #backyardpoultry #chickenlover #chickenmoments #ternakrumahan #ternakayam #ternakunggas #hens #hobiayam #hobiternak #ayamrumahan #homestead #ayamkampungasli #ayamkampung #anakanayam #telurayamkampung #eggs #babychicks #anakayam

Did you know cinnamon is a great spice to add to your flock's diet? Today I made some warm cinnamon blueberry oatmeal for my flock. They absolutely loved it! It was all gone within minutes! ๐Ÿ˜‹ . . Cinnamon helps to reduce inflammation, it has anti-infectious, antibacterial as well as antioxidant properties and it can help guard against neurological diseases. . . This spice also contains a compound that thins blood, which means that it also helps circulatory systems by improving blood flow to combs, wattles and feet, which can help to prevent frostbite. . . It also may help with the prevention of congestion, coughing, infection, and respiratory problems.

I had to post this video. This is what happens when the chickens sense danger. Everyone freeze and they "purr" to each other. Except for my little Rebel AnnaBelle. She knew she was safe so she finished her BOSS. ---------------- #chickens #Chicken #raisingchickens #Chickencoop #poultry #Hen #henhouse ย  #freerangechicken #freerangechickens #backyardchicken #backyardchickens #backyardchooks #chickenfarm #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #urbanchickens #fresheggs #fresheggsdaily #MaryBelle #CarrieBelle #ilovemychickens #freerange

Knowing I had to leave home for months last spring and that even when I came home, I would be consumed with Cโ€™s recovery, I just gave up. For a bit. I couldnโ€™t get bees again last year, I sold off all but three of my chickens before we left for TX and my garden became a complete crap pile. Rotting raised beds and covered bottom to top in weeds. All the things I had wanted for years I just had to let go. But now we are on the other side and I am almost (๐Ÿคž) out of the nasty days of my pregnancy and I could not be more excited to get back to the things in life I love. I get to put my life back in order again and pick up the pieces...again...for what feels like the umpteenth time. And now I have these sweet little babes that are the start of everything new...new garden, new chicks, new bees, new goals, new baby-to-be, a not-so-new kid with a new back. ๐Ÿ™Œ

Underneath lil Thelma here are... 2 teeny CHICKS ๐Ÿฅ I let her set on 4 eggs because none of the Silkie chicks we had hatch late Summer lived... they were simply too tiny to survive out in the Coop area with the Silkie/ Bantam Flock. I was in the kitchen, making some Christmas ornaments and heard a chick shrieking... ran outside & one of the โ€œteenagersโ€ had it on the ground, pecking at it ๐Ÿ˜ซ But... Grammy to the rescue!! I grabbed it up & also found another still inside the Coop. Brought them inside right away, set up a crate in the guest bathroom & brought Mama Thelma in ๐Ÿ’— They will be โ€œhouse chickensโ€ for a while ๐Ÿ˜Š #raisingchickens #silkies #homestead #farmlife #rancherswifeapothecary

Tyson has been outside in 10ยฐ temps building a run for our flock. We will most likely wait until spring to finish the details but for now, I'm thankful we can offer the hens a safe place to be outdoors without worrying about the nearby coyotes.

Ready to add some holiday cheer to your backyard flock? Try adding a holiday veggie shish ka bob to entertain you and your chickens this holiday! ๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿก๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ”. . Place a wooden skewer through some veggies (I used brussel sprouts and radishes for that Christmas red and green) and stick them in the ground. The chickens will be a little skeptical at first - I mean who doesn't have a skeptical chicken. But after a few minutes, they will be clucking to take a peck at the veggies! . . . . . #chickensintheholidays #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chicken #farmlife #hens #chickencoop #poultry #chicks #farm #chickensofig #hobbyfarm #urbanchickens #backyardpoultry #chickenlove #homestead #backyardpoultrymag #crazychickenlady #fresheggs #freerange #nature #chickensaspets #raisingchickens #freerangechickens #hensofinstagram #pets #birds #cochin #backyardflock #lovemychickens

Hen life! I just love how busy they are. I try to keep them extra busy, now that they are permanently in their run, poor little mites! The hanging baskets are a huge hit with my lot! They also keep me thoroughly entertained watching them trying to duck out of the way of it swinging about and trying not get too dizzy! ๐Ÿคช . . . . . #chickens #chickenlady #rurallife #farmher #poultryofinstagram #henstagram #chickenlife #hobbyfarm #backyardflock #chickensofinstagram #chickencoop #minifarming #happychickens #petsmart #birds #poultry #hobbyfarm #smallholding #fresheggsdaily #homesteading #backyardpoultry #backyardfarm #backyardchickens #smallfarm #homestead #homesteading #lifeinthecountry #henlove #henstagram #chickencoop #raisingchickens #crazychickenlady #egglayers

This is the look of a fearless chicken who led her brave young flock, all named after fierce Viking shield-maidens BTW, on a flight far from the coop across the vast snowy yard...and then stubbornly refused to move another inch and each waited to be individually hand-carried back, because it turns out snow is cold and it was a long way. #bigbabies #spoiledmuch #backyardchickens #raisingchickens #wyandottechicken #mixedflock #snuggledintomycoatlikeabigbaby #historyvikings #vikings #lagerthalothbrokwouldbeashamed
