Any NorCal Bay Area Farms need a little one year old extremely friendly male Bantam Call Duck? Posting for a friend who can’t keep him! #callduck #bluebibbedcallduck #callducksofinstagram

Chicken keeping has so many joys, truly too many to count. But as many know, it also comes with heartbreak. Today we lost our head rooster, Bleu. 💙😔 This morning, he wasn’t crowing and he just didn’t look well...though he seemed perfectly fine previously. We will be taking him to UC Davis for a necropsy to determine what happened. His ladies have been eerily quiet, while our Bantam roo, Egbert, seems to have a little more spring in his step 🤨, already plotting how to win Bleu’s girls over now that he’s #1 again. 🧐 Not sure if I have it in me to get another Large Fowl roo...this one was one of the toughest losses yet. 😣 #rooster #roosters #roostersofinstagram #bluebirchenmarans

What do you do with your imperfect eggs? Here @finefowlfarm, we believe Mother Nature, (and our girls!), do an egg-cellent job of protecting and sanitizing eggs prior to sale, so we don’t wash off the bloom. ✨🥚 But now and then our girls will soil an egg in the laying process...so they’re recycled back as a protein boost to our hens. Sometimes we wonder if they’re soiled on purpose! 😬🥚💩 So what do YOU do? #egg #eggs #eggsofinstagram #organic #organiceggs #chicken #chickens #chickensofinstagram #backyardflock #backyardchickens #urbanchickens #backyardpoultrymag #BackyardChicken #MadeInUSA #RaiseChickens #soyfree #chick #chicks #chicksofinstagram #eggcollecting #iamcountryside

Happy Caturday! This guy is such a love! At 19 years old, this former barn cat has earned his retirement. We feel pretty lucky to be sharing it with him. ☺️💚 #cat #cats #catsofinstagram #retired #retiredbarncat #barncat #rescue

UPDATE: Discovered that these live larvae and adults on my freeze-dried mealworms are Ham Beetles. They came along for the ride when I purchased this from #ConcordFeed. 🤢 “The ham beetles are in a large family of beetles whose species are almost all predators on other insects. However, several species also feed on meat products, such as cured or smoked meats, bacon, cheese, or oil seeds. These species also feed on other insect larvae they may find in these foods. Ham beetles also feed on animal products in processes such as taxidermy, where they may be a nuisance as they feed within antlers or other residual meat materials. Both adults and larvae feed, and the adults have been known to “bite” when handled. Adult females can lay as many as 2000 eggs, and the period from egg to adult may be only 1 month. Since adults feed they are long-lived, surviving up to 14 months, with several generations per year.” - via PestWeb.com 🤢 These beetles leave a bitter taste and can spread disease. I won’t be feeding them to my chickens. I’m thoroughly disgusted! 🤢ORIGINAL POST: When you spend $$$ for some freeze dried #mealworms for your chickens...only some didn’t freeze dry. 😮🤢🐛 #itsalive #refundplease #egg #eggs #eggsofinstagram #organic #organiceggs #chicken #chickens #chickensofinstagram #backyardflock #backyardchickens #urbanchickens #backyardpoultrymag #BackyardChicken #MadeInUSA #RaiseChickens #soyfree #chick #chicks #chicksofinstagram
