Guess who's entering her ladies in the poultry division of the County Fair this year 😌 Edith & Penguin are natural performers. Edith will win the judges over with her striking good looks & Penguin cuddles to get her way. So I think we have a good chance ! It's not until October so they'll have time to finish growing & maybe even have eggs to show ! Now that's #somethingtocrowabout 😁 submission for @notaredroy @cul_de_sac_homestead #crackedquackedandwhacked photo challenge 📸

July #foodforest check-in! Including discovering the latest & greatest "secret nest" the birds have been crafting 😂 My #backyardchickens and #backyardducks (well, now down to duck singular) freaking love it. People ask me how it works without the birds destroying my plants, and I have 2 main tips for that: 1.) Wait until the majority of your perennial plants are waist height or taller to free range chickens & ducks in your garden! Protect new additions with small DIY cages made of scrap fencing. 2.) The ratio of birds to plants needs to be many more plants than birds for success. I have maybe 90 plants I've seeded or planted just in the back food forest area you can see, and this keeps so much interest around that the birds are unlikely to go for, say, your kale - because there are a million other plants and bugs to go for instead! 3.) Create interesting, seasonally shifting microclimates for them with compost piles, mulch accumulating pathways, cover cropping, brush piles, bird baths, rock piles, dust baths, and the like. This keeps them busy, happy, and out of your food crops! 4.) Make food crops less accessible with raised beds, low fencing, etc. With easier options close at hand, they're unlikely to expend the extra effort to get at your favorite crops! 💚 💚 💚 Let me know if you want to know more about any of these #backyardpoultry tips! I love my girls and wouldn't change having them around for anything. They teach me so much daily and I love sharing that with you guys! 💚 💚 #chickens #ducks #eggs #fresheggs #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #chickensofinstagram #ducksofinstagram #backyardchickensofinstagram #backyardducksofinstgram #urbanchickens #urbanducks #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdgarden #birdgardens #citygardener #asheville #ashevillenc

I never realized just how much I would love having chickens. I started the idea of just wanting fresh eggs but it’s turned into something so much more than that. They bring me such joy and I’m so grateful. #backyardchickensofinstagram #backyardchickensrock #chickens #myflock #grateful

I don't care if you're Catholic, Christian, or Muslim. I don't care if you practice Voodoo, Witchcraft, or Scientology ... please send whatever good vibes you can spare to our fire & forest crews & to the chicken moms & dads that live in the path of this devastating blaze ... 💔

The temperature was 104° by the time I got back inside after weeding the 4 ft tall burdens surrounding my little fruit trees. This is only a tiny corner of my wannabe homestead. Now that the trees are established, I can start churning up the rest of the yard, adding nutrients to sustain crops (because it's shit soil right now), & getting the old coop out in order to put the new coop in. I have my work cut out for me but man do I have a vision & I am ever so excited ! 🌱

The 3 roosters from the Valley View Peeps are looking for new homes. All three are crowing - although generally just for an hour in the morning. They spar with each other but aren't overally agressive with the hens or myself. If you are interested or know someone who is, let me know. They are 14 weeks old and were hatched as part of a kindergarten science unit at school. #valleyviewelementary #mypetchicken #backyardchicks #backyardchickensofinstagram #valleyviewpeeps

My #chickatudetuesday contribution with @myhippiefarmhouse is Edith & her ever judgmental face. She always looks like she has something to say about any thing & every thing I'm doing 🙄

Popeye and I are just chillin’ on the porch watching the rain! She is loving the VIP section, overlooking the other chickens, AYCE organic food, imported grit (from the other side of the garden) and private bottle service. #luxelife #bantamchicken #ameraucana #popeyeschicken #backyardchickensofinstagram #instachicken

This was the aftermath of the bath. She enjoyed herself so I'm not sure why she looks so angry 😂 #backyardchickensofinstagram #petchickensofinstagram #petchicken #housechicken #housechickensofinstagram #peachesthemagicalchicken #peachesthepeeper

Bath day! Peaches gets a bath once a week or so - she frequently gets poop stuck to her when she spends time on her belly. Today she was particularly stinky 💩 so she got a bubblebath made of natural cleansers and conditioners for her feathers. I'm happy to report she smells (and feels) much better now! #backyardchickensofinstagram #petchickensofinstagram #petchicken #housechicken #housechickensofinstagram #peachesthemagicalchicken #peachesthepeeper

We've got eggs! They weren't in the nesting box so it may be a few days worth. Left a couple eggs in the nesting box to show them where to go. . . . #backyardchickensofinstagram #backyardchickens #fresheggs #hens #homestead #homesteading #firstlayer

Happy SundayFunday, friends! I’m thrilled, for this morning after our Grubblies Happy Hour treat time, my sweet Buckeye girl, Brandy, let me pick her up, settle her in my lap, & pet her for five minutes! Brandy is my most affectionate girl, but Buckeye hens are well-known for this kind of behavior; they’ll eagerly run towards humans instead of retreating. Brandy loves to stand on my feet to get as close to me as she possibly can. When she sat in my lap, I immediately called for Mike to take a picture of the two of us, but he’d gone back inside already. 😬🙁Better luck next time! BAWK BRUP! ❤️🐔❤️ #hsf #happysundayfunday #grubblieshappyhour #backyardchickensofinstagram #buckeyebrandythebuckeye #backyardchickens #backyardchickensofinstagram #backyardchickenloversofinstagram #freerangechickens #freerangechickensofinstagram #freerangechickenloversofinstagram

Oh my! This was both highly entertaining and a bit nerve wracking for me last night! I moved Jane and the babes to the far side of the main coop yesterday (from the nursery) and Jane decided she wanted to roost up on the high roosts in the run with her little family. . The babies were soooooooo distraught. First figuring how to get up there (I truly can’t believe they did) and then EVERY.ONE!!! wanted to be under, on top of, or somehow touching MOM (even though it was roasting out). They were causing such commotion. I have a tiny glimpse of it on video for you to see. It was hard to get a good vantage point with the wire between us. . They eventually got it figured out. Poor Jane! She had to stand all night because of all the babies stuffed under her for the night. #animalantics #mamasaysgrowup #butiwantyoutostaysmallforever

Now that the backyard is being landscaped, we can’t be having the girls running around digging holes in the flower beds! So, we set up this play pen for them. We’ll see how well they like it! 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ #silkie #silkies #silkiebabies #roos #youngroosters #backyardchicken #backyardchickens #backyardchickenlove #backyardchickensofinstagram #silkiechicken #silkiesofinstagram #sunnyday #sunnymorning #goodmorning #springishere #mysilkiechicken #chicks #chickens #chicken #oakley #aspen
