A tenlined June beetle spent all day safely on the outside of the bug zapper on the patio. I tried to move him away from it and was going to move him to a part of the yard the chickens can't get to but he hissed at me and held on the screen like glue. Turns out the big guy (1 1/2 inches) is a hissing beetle and it's normal for them to hiss if touched. Sure startled me though! 😳😄 He left later after I wouldn't turn the zapper light back on. . . . . . . #insects #insectsofinstagram #entomology #bugs #gardening #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #growfoodnotlawns #growwhatyoueat #homegrown #sustainable #summer #organic #nature #greenthumb #pnw #washington #westernwashington #litenhagefarm

Mission Impossible.🐸 I found him clinging on the wall above the chicken's dust bath spot. I'm glad I found him before they did because they've eaten tree frogs before. 😢 This guy got moved to a safe shaded place under the squash plants. He was so grateful that I saved him from certain death, he peed on me. 😄 . . . . . . . #gardening #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #urbanorganicgardener #iamcountryside #motherearthnews #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #frog #amphibians #herpsofinstagram #frogsofinstagram #growfoodnotlawns #growwhatyoueat #homegrown #sustainable #summer #organic #nature #greenthumb #pnw #washington #westernwashington #litenhagefarm

Chicken people problems. Like pet hair, feathers will apear out of thin air.🐔 I left my drink inside to lock up the chicken coop and weed a bit in the corn patch and came back to this. I'm just glad I saw it before I took another sip.😄 . . . . . . @chickens.and.wine #wine #chickenpeopleproblems #chickens #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #urbanchickens #backyardfarming #backyardgardening #homesteading #farm #farmette #gardening #sustainable #pnw #washington #westernwashington #litenhagefarm

Me: "Our chicken coop has nice little nest boxes that are easily accessible with it's it's own door. When our hens start laying it will be so easy to collect eggs." Chickens: "I'm going to find the most inaccessible spot in the yard with spiny holly branches, thick bamboo and lumber scraps and lay my eggs there. Have fun."😄 . . . . . . #chickens #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #urbanchickens #brahmachickens #brahmas #buffbrahma #lightbrahma #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #gardening #sustainable #washington #pnw #litenhagefarm #iamcountryside #backyardpoultrymag #hobbyfarmsgram #tadahamsters_feature #backyardchickenproject

One of the hens is an egg eater.😳 When I let them out this morning most of them had bright yellow yolk on their white feathers. Then, someone got a second egg while we were gone this afternoon. No one ate Buffy's because she hid herself under all the bamboo to lay today.😄 Really hoping this behavior doesn't last much longer. I'm going to be watching them like a hawk now. . . . . . . #chickens #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #urbanchickens #brahmachickens #brahmas #lightbrahma #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #gardening #sustainable #washington #pnw #litenhagefarm #iamcountryside #backyardpoultrymag #hobbyfarmsgram #tadahamsters_feature #backyardchickenproject

Well, that's not where that belongs. 🐔😑 That makes 5 eggs this week! This one was so much smaller than the others that I think it's someone's first egg. Hopefully she doesn't get in the habit of laying them there. I had to crawl under bushes to get it. 😄 . . . . . . #chickens #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #urbanchickens #brahmachickens #brahmas #lightbrahma #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #gardening #sustainable #washington #pnw #litenhagefarm #iamcountryside #backyardpoultrymag #hobbyfarmsgram #tadahamsters_feature #backyardchickenproject

Found this hiding in the squash and corn patch while I was looking for squash blossoms today. This isn't the flower I was looking for. Lol I'm still trying to figure out how it got there. 😕 . . . . . . #gardening #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #urbanorganicgardener #iamcountryside #motherearthnews #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #flowers #surprise #garden #growfoodnotlawns #growwhatyoueat #homegrown #sustainable #spring #organic #nature #greenthumb #pnw #washington #westernwashington #litenhagefarm

Opal, one of our Light Brahmas laid her first egg today! Heard her fussing and saw her go in the coop for a while. Went to check on her after awhile and she fussed at me from the nest box. A little while later she let out a loud call and there was the egg! . . . . . . #chickens #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #urbanchickens #brahmachickens #brahmas #lightbrahma #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #gardening #sustainable #washington #pnw #litenhagefarm #iamcountryside #backyardpoultrymag #hobbyfarmsgram #tadahamsters_feature #backyardchickenproject

Egg number 3 yesterday! Caught Buffy going in the coop after I had looked for eggs and when she came out a bit later there was this pretty little egg. She went back in when she saw me taking the picture. She gently rolled the egg around then sat on it. I'm worried she'll go broody, so I'm going to be checking for eggs several times a day. . . . . . . #chickens #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #urbanchickens #brahmachickens #brahmas #buffbrahma #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #gardening #sustainable #washington #pnw #litenhagefarm #iamcountryside #backyardpoultrymag #hobbyfarmsgram #tadahamsters_feature #backyardchickenproject
