You ain’t #punkrock 🤘unless you’re rockin’ a fierce black mohawk, dark manicure 💅 and staring down the paparazzi 📸! 🖤🖤🖤 * * These Svart pullets are lovely, petite girls with such sweet eyes...just don’t cross them! ☠️ They put those #fluffybutt Araucana girls in place reallllll quick 😏 My older Svarthöna hens have a similar vibe: friendly and slightly cliquey, with a splash of spice 🔥 Gotta love hens 🐔that are eye candy 🍬 AND full of personality! * It’s #mohawkmonday hosted by Tami @rustymoosefarm and #mondayclucks for @lazy_b_acres and @callfamilyfarms!

Totally snagged this egg basket from my mother-in-law. She knows I have a slight obsession for antique #farmhousedecor and well, this one needed to come live with me 🤗🥚🧺 * * Tagged by my darling friend Dennita @the_red_barn_farm to share for #farmsteadersholiday (all hosts tagged on the pic). Today’s theme is MEALS and when egg production declines, I get really bummed ☹️ since EGGS are my mainstay (shocking, right? 💁‍♀️). 3 eggs almost every 🍳 morning, no joke. * What’s crazy is that years ago, I had high cholesterol and was told that eventually I’d need statins like most of my family members. Giving up dairy 🥛 dramatically decreased my levels (😱70 points!). And eating eggs EVERY DAY...did that jack up my cholesterol again? Nope. I’m still within normal range and feel soooooo much better having increased my protein intake overall. So what’s the takeaway here? I’m no doctor or health expert by any means, but #farmfresheggs don’t just give me heart eyes 😍😍😍...I’m pretty sure they make my ❤️ happier AND healthier! * * Also sharing for this week’s #eggvignette hosted by another lovely homesteader and lady farmer, Penny @happydaysfarm! * * * #eggsofinstagram #farmhouseflatlay #food52 #rainboweggs #eggsnthings #theincredibleedibleegg #farmfresh #organiceggs #coloredeggs #antique #eggbasketcollective #countryliving #farmtotable #farmhouse #ctfarm #iamcountryside #backyardchickens #backyardpoultrymag #blackcoppermarans #greeneggs #oliveeggs #blueeggs #speckledeggs #newburyfarms

I was made for this—Sookie❄️☃️❄️ * * Could.not.be.happier! This girl absolutely LOVES 💗 the snow. Watching her leap through the freshly fallen powder warms my heart ☺️ Just pure, unbridled delight. Kinda like watching my kiddos make snow angels 👼 and go sledding down our big hill behind the house 🛷 Those double dewclaws of hers sure come in handy, climbing snow-covered hills on our farm and digging her own igloo ☃️ It’s a beautiful thing to see my fluffy baby mature into a sometimes-graceful, always-entertaining, big girl dog 🐶 * * This week’s theme for #farmsteadersholiday is JOY and there’s nothing more joyful than seeing that sweet pup playing with laughing, bundled up kids outside in the snow🌨 * What brings you JOY during the holiday season? Share your pics for #farmsteadersholiday and tag the hosts: @the_red_barn_farm @camoandfeathers @the_teenage_homesteader @moderndaysoldways @atablefullinthewoods and @theprickleecactus and for a chance to win some amazing gifts 🎁 from their daily giveaways! * I’m tagging Stacy @5rfarmoregon and Janice @rogerscreekfarm to join in and share their JOY today! 😘😘 * * * #saturdayinspiration #behappy #blessed #saturdaymood #dogslife #dogsofinstagram #country_features #greatpyrenees #lgd #simplejoys #livestockguardiandog #puppy #fluffball #puppiesofinstagram #furbaby #farmdog #happydog #snowday #itssofluffy #lifeouthere #cutenessoverload #farmskyfriday #findyourbliss #farmlifebestlife #iamcountryside #asimplecountrylife #farmsweetfarm #countryliving #newburyfarms

💠💎🥚💎💠 * Seafoam blue-green egg with a pearlescent bloom from my little blue #dimepiece 💙 So hard to capture its beauty (esp if you’re like me, struggling to figure out the most basic iPhone settings🤳😂). Luckily, I caught her in the act, and while it wasn’t laid IN the nesting boxes 🙄, I’m happy to report that it was safely tucked away in a corner 👏 * * Breeding Araucanas may prove to be a bit of a challenge, but I don’t like to do anything easy 😂😂 Infertility is quite low compared to other tailed breeds, as their rumplessness makes it difficult to “get it done” 🤭 And then there’s those darn genetic mutations that complicate matters 🤦‍♀️ And...then there’s Camila (my spunky black pullet), who refuses to associate with any of her flock, let alone get close to the roosters ❌🐓😬 So for 2019, I’ll run some test hatches and see how that goes. A real elaborate “game plan.” 😂😂 * * Joining in with Pauline @thesmithroost and Carissa @antiqued.chicken.mom for #flocktasticfriday and Brittany @thelittlewhitecoop for #cluckbackatit. Happy #fluffybuttfriday, friends 😁 * * * #friyay #araucana #backyardchickens #backyardpoultry #petchicken #layinghens #junkinthetrunk #itssofluffy #flockfriday #fbf #flockboss #iamaflockboss #blueegg #eggsofinstagram #prettyegg #farmfresheggs #chickensofinstagram #iheartmyhens #farmsweetfarm #iamcountryside #ctfarm #backyardpoultrymag #newburyfarms

This took a while to collect 😩🥚🐔 * * During the spring, I was collecting almost 2.5 dozen a day from my flock. Baskets 🧺 overflowing!! Now we’re barely getting a half dozen 😕 My older ladies aren’t really producing anymore, and last year’s hens are just growing back feathers from molting. Just when I thought all hope was lost😢, my Araucanas started laying and surprising me 🤩with their seafoam #blueeggs that have a gorgeous pearl bloom on them. I’ll post some pics of their pretty pullet eggs soon! 💎💎💎Now I’m waiting on my Ameraucana, Svarthona and Hedemora pullets to start laying now 🤞🙏 Looking forward to spring breeding and adding some new colorful 💗🧡💛💚💙 layers to my flock and egg basket. What breeds are on your 2019 list? 💁‍♀️

On this #GivingTuesday, I’d like to highlight an amazing program and humbly ask if you would consider donating to @twocoyotes! 🌟 * Two Coyotes is a non-profit, wilderness school dedicated to enhancing the lives of children by connecting them with nature, their innate gifts, and the community 👦👧⛺️⛰🌲 * We began our journey with Two Coyotes this summer after my son attended camp #sticksandstonesfarm , one of the various locations for Two Coyotes. He absolutely LOVED ❤️it, and would tell me all about what they learned, what they discovered during their daily hikes (birds, salamanders, animal tracks) and what 🏃🏼activities and games they played during the day. When I picked him up from camp each day, he was totally dirty, utterly exhausted, but completely content 🤗. Even though my children spend A LOT of time outside on our farm 🚜🌾🐓🐐🐖, lessons they learn in a small group, surrounded by caring, passionate and knowledgeable instructors, is something I can’t replicate. * This year, we made the decision to send both kids one day a week to Two Coyotes for their “Forest Learning Program.” It’s modeled after their #homeschool programming and it’s a great way to allow children to learn in the natural environment, fully engaging their sensory experiences and allowing them to feel confident about their abilities and skills they’ve learned (making fire, building a shelter, etc). We’re so grateful to have found this phenomenal program and provide this unique experience to our children 🙏 * Please take a peek at @twocoyotes and all that they have to offer! I’d love to hear if there are programs like this close to you!

Snow cones anyone? 💁‍♀️❄️ * * This little lady went HAM on the snow today 😜 We’re in that melting, muddy-muck phase, but I’m hoping to finish winterizing the coops before the deep freeze 🥶 we’re expecting here for Thanksgiving. Some new straw 🌾in the run, hanging treats, and supervised free-range time on nice days ☀️ will keep everyone happy and entertained this winter 👍 * There’s a ton of great DIY projects for your flock that you can find in Janet @timbercreekfarmandhomestead ‘s book “50 Do-It-Youself Projects for Keeping Chickens.” A fantastic read, chook-full 😉 of info ❤️🐔❤️ and a great gift for the holidays! 📚 * Sharing my little snowball ☃️ for #mohawkmonday hosted by Tami @rustymoosefarm! * * * #mychickencoop #mondaymood #araucana #backyardchickens #backyardpoultry #petchicken #tuftedchicken #fluffybutt #rumplessaraucana #junkinthetrunk #itssofluffy #flockboss #iamaflockboss #chickensofinstagram #iheartmyhens #farmsweetfarm #chickenkeeping #iheartmyhens #happyhens #iamcountryside #ctfarm #backyardpoultrymag #newburyfarms
