I have no idea how she gets her head feathers so dirty 🤦🏼♀️
Bean is growing up so fast!! I have no idea where the name Bean came from, it just stuck 😂 Bean and four of her siblings were raised by a chicken. Bean was the only one to make it. Baby turkeys are so fragile 😣 I don’t actually know if it’s a male or female. Any guesses?
I took this picture before Cricket went broody. She laid eggs for like two weeks and then decided that she wanted to be a mother. Broody chickens are crazy 🙄
For the last few months, we’ve been fighting with feather issues. The feathers on the backs of our chickens have been breaking. I’ve always thought it was lice or mites, so that was what I was treating. After asking around, we’ve learned that it’s our roosters. And now that I know that, it seems so obvious 😂 I’m still a little in denial because I love all of our roosters so much. I’ve tried hen saddles, and they seem to make the feathers worse. Any tips besides getting rid of my sweet roos? I’m going to pull the really bad hens away from the roosters so they get some rest.
Buckbeak is definitely our most efficient drinker. She stands in the water and dips her entire beard in the water 😂 Also Nonsense is a professional photobomber (can you see where she got her name from??)
Fern, our little farm dog. She absolutely loves chicks. Kind’ve. She’s really obsessive with them but she also acts like she’s very uncomfortable. Sometimes if you put one too close to her face, she shows her teeth and avoids eye contact. But other times she just stares at them and tries to lick them. It’s a love/hate relationship.
Egg laying is some serious business 😳
Bert is growing up to be quite the handsome boy 😍
Wallace naturally looks very patriotic 🇺🇸 Happy 4th of July!!
I must say, I risked a lot to get this picture. Balancing six eggs in one female hand is a lot harder than it looks 😂
The sass 😳
This little lady is Chickwea. She was one of the first chicks I’ve ever hatched in a incubator. She really has grown up so fast and is now laying eggs.
It’s funny to watch animals get to know each other. When we got our first pig, the chickens were terrified of him. They’d cluck constantly and run away from him. Five pigs later and the chickens treat them as their personal pillows 😂
Sorry I’ve been so inactive!! We’ve been at the lake for the last few days. Happy to be back at the farm. Expecting our turkey hen, Tilda, to have her eggs hatch any time now. She should have at least 10 babies 🙌🏼
Giant turken baby 😭
You can see all of the food in its crop!
Sweet potato treat for my birds ❤️
This week has been so busy and it’s finally over 👏🏼👏🏼 Looking forward to enjoying a restful weekend and spending time with the animals. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
The pullets I hatched after Christmas are starting to lay!! I don’t have a current picture of Cricket, but she just started to lay little olive eggs. She’s a Easter Egger and cuckoo maran mix. So happy with her egg color!
I took this picture when Eve actually had feathers. She’s so naked and bare on her back now 😣 Trying to get her to grow feathers back. Any tips besides providing a higher protein diet? I’ve also been so busy that I haven’t been able to get new pictures if the birds. Hopefully I’ll get some this weekend!!
