Some animal behavior tidbits for y’all! Did you know that this head down tail up posture has been used in a lot of species of fowl to attract mates? 🧐What started out as a just a regular feeding posture turned into a complex signaling behavior through a series of elaboration and ritualization over evolutionary time! I guess the ladies just like big fluffy butts (and they cannot lie)😏 (Pictured: Nugget a 3-year-old New Hampshire red) • • • #ilikebigbutts #fluffybutt #oohlala #animals #animalbehavior #evolution #neato #rooster #roosters #roostersofinstagram #rroosdaytuesday #chicken #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chickensaspets #petchickens #nugget #nuggetthechicken #chickennuggets #nugs #mypetchicken #mychicken #mychickencoop #backyardchickens #backyardpoultry #backyardpoultrymag #pet #urbanchickens #urbanfarming #clucklife

It’s day 4 of my dead week BS and this is how I currently look. I haven’t brushed my hair in literal months and I’m pretty sure it’s falling out and bit my nails down to the nubbin so we’ll see how long I last...#ded (Pictured: Popcorn a 3-year-old wheaten ameraucana) • • • #finals #finalsweek #deadweek #sad #nailbiter #nervous #stress #cal #gobears #bio #stem #chicken #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chickensaspets #petchickens #popcorn #popcornchicken #popcornthechicken #mypetchicken #mychicken #mychickencoop #backyardchickens #backyardpoultry #backyardpoultrymag #pet #urbanchickens #urbanfarming #clucklife

As the first semester of my senior year is coming to an end, this is totally how I’m feeling. I really just can’t be bothered to do anything even though I have 2 research papers due and final...oh well. What can you do when you’ve had senioritis since the start of your college career? Also it’s starting to hit that I’ll actually have to make some solid plans for grad school from now on and that blows...I’m probably just gonna waste more time looking at memes. 😂Outta sight outta mind.

“Who u calling’ pinhead?” - Patrick Star The creator of my all time favorite show passed away today and I felt that it was necessary to honor his legacy as Spongebob defined my childhood and continues to bring me immense joy. (Honestly, I still quote the show to this day as an adult.)

This is what the air currently looked like today in the Bay Area. It’s like a perpetual haze covering the whole area. We’re talking about an AQI over 200 which is extremely unhealthy. These wildfires are so debilitating to the state; and although the chaparral ecosystem is supposed to handle wildfires, it’s not supposed to be this bad and this often. I can’t even imagine what the people directly affected by the fires are enduring. The lack of rain only makes things worse here too. Everyone should take extreme precautions when going outside. 🔴🔴🔴Remember it’s not just smoke out there but also asbestos, fiberglass, hazardous chemicals, and many other particles that are really bad for your respiratory system. 🔴🔴🔴So stay safe everyone! Make sure you wear the proper N95 face masks when going out. 😷As far as the chickens go, limit their free ranging time and make sure you give them a lot of water and fortify it with VetRx which helps with respiratory problems. Hopefully the rain that we’re expecting next week helps with the fire containment. • • • #wildfire #smoke #air #badair #staysafe #indoors #california #californiafires #californiastrong #becareful #chicken #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chickensaspets #petchickens #mypetchicken #mychickens #mychickencoop #backyardchickens #backyardpoultry #backyrdpoultrymag #pet #urbanchickens #urbanfarming #clucklife

It is with a heavy heart that I have to say goodbye to my oldest girl Mocha. She had an awesome 12 years with me, so this is more of a celebration of her life. She was over 100 years old in chicken years and I personally think that’s pretty awesome for a chicken. I got her when I was 8 years old and she had always been out there laying in the sun while I tended to the other chickens ever since. She had the largest comb in existence and a missing toe but she was still perfect to me. Although I’m sad that she’s gone and a part of my childhood leaves with her, I’m glad that I gave her the best life any chicken could ask for. She was spoiled rotten and made sure that I knew she was. Rest In Peace sweet Mocha. Hopefully there’s a nice soft patch of dirt and warm sun up in chicken heaven waiting for you. ❤️ (Pictured: Mocha 2006-2018) • • • #restinpeace #rip #mocha #mochathechicken #friend #neverforgotten #bestpetintheworld #sassy #loveyou #loveyoualways

Parmy is all about that whole wheat berry life. She’ll go out of her way to only eat the wheat berries and leave everything else for the rest of the chickens 😂. Do your chickens have a grain preference? Or are mine just spoiled brats 😂😂😂 (Pictured: Parmesan a 2-year-old New Hampshire red/buff orpington) • • • #hungry #food #picky #wheat #wholewheat #wheatberries #myfave #yum #spoiled #brat #chicken #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chickensaspets #petchickens #parmesan #chickenparm #parmesanthechicken #bufforpington #newhampshire #mypetchicken #mychicken #mychickencoop #backyardchickens #backyardpoultry #backyardpoultrymag #pet #urbanchicken #urbanfarming #clucklife

Throwback to when the girls were attacking the newly made feed as if we don’t feed them at all 🙄...also it’s still weird not having Roro and Pancakes around but I’m glad I have tons of pictures to remember them by. • • • #throwbackthursday #throwback #tbt #tb #goodtimes #hungry #starving #chickenscratch #food #yum #dinosaurs #chicken #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chickensaspets #petchickens #rotisserie #pancakes #rip #mypetchicken #mychicken #mychickencoop #backyardchickens #backyardpoultry #backyardpoultrymag #pet #urbanchickens #urbarnfarming #clucklife

Rest In Peace to my little Roro Bean. She died suddenly this week while I was at school. I’m very heartbroken and shocked that she died so quickly since she was responding well to her bumblefoot treatment last weekend. I will be taking a break from Instagram for a bit since she was one of my sweetest chickens and best fluffy friend, and I need some time to cope. Thank you to everyone who tried to help. • • • #restinpeace #loveyou #rotisserie #rotisseriethechicken #roro #rorobean #illmissyou
