Pretty little Violet, she does not like to pose for photos, I had to hang on to her, while Wyatt and Maiablu were at my feet wondering what the commotion was. Sharing for Erin @urbannarnia for #chickthrowback #farmloveandgarden #babychicks #feisty #backyardpoultrymag #bluewyandotte #prettychick

Unfortunately farm life isn’t only petting cute animals all day. Bad things happen. Two days ago we lost 10 of our birds. We’re still not 100% sure what killed them, but it attacked in the middle of the day. Feathers everywhere. One trail of feathers lead to a beak and nothing else. The other trails lead to just more feathers. Today we were heading into town and saw one of our “missing” chickens dead on the side of the road miles from the house. No bite marks or blood. If you have any guesses on what could’ve done this, I’d appreciate it. Rest In Peace Nonsense, Beatrice, Bean, Chickwea, Dove and 5 unnamed chicks ❤️

We got 50 ducklings this winter and half turned out to be males. That’s a bad ratio for a flock. The poor girls were getting mated to death - literally. One male would jump on then 3 or 4 more would try to pile on and before you know it, they’ve broken her neck. So, our great duck harvest began today. I set up this plucking station with spots to hang two birds at once since my friend @ksmeds1333 came to help (you’re a lifesaver!). We only got through 8 so we will continue tomorrow. If you live in the area, free-range whole ducks for sale, shrink wrapped and frozen, $3/pound. Most are 3.5-6 pounds. Come see us! #duckharvest #raisingducks #farmlife #farmfreshmeat #duckforsale #bataviaohio #iamcountryside #backyardpoultrymag

If only they would make my coffee too😂 Things have been pretty quiet around here. A broken ankle in the summer is no fun (is it ever really fun🤔)!? But it is definitely a sign that I need to slow down. I'm always rushing around here doing multiple things at once. I have the mindset that everything needs to get done and I ignore the stress it puts on my body/mind. Of course a clean house is wonderful and who doesn't enjoy crossing things off their to-do list?! Being forced to sit back and chill has allowed me to be more mindful of my time and my health. Sometimes we all need a little reminder! So I challenge you to let those dishes sit tonight and go for a walk or sit outside and watch the sunset instead! . . . . Playing along with @happydaysfarm for #eggvignette

. I thought it was Friday? It isn’t? Ughh... . It’s tomorrow, so I guess that’s okay. . Another good thing is that it won’t be too hot. Unfortunately, that means it’s going to be rainy this whole week and I hate being wet. 😬 🌧 . I hope you had a great Thursday! .

Loretta is head hen of the flock, but she has a few newbies coming for the crown! - Exciting news! I will be posting my giveaway tomorrow 😍 I can’t wait for everyone to see the goodies we have for it. This was the look Loretta gave me when I told her that the @grubblyfarms and @herbinbackyards wasn’t for her. 😂 I can’t wait to show you guys what else is in the giveaway 😍 - #sweetrunfarms

This little girl is such a sweetheart, but she's so wild! I've been working on taming her down (along with the 8 others she hatched with) but it's proving to be difficult. It hasn't been as difficult as Rocky was! They are slowly starting to not jump at the sight of me, although they are still running away 😉 #chickens #chickensofinstagram #poultry #poultryofinstagram #birds #birdsofinstagram #australorp #roosters #roostersofinstagram #mypetchicken #mypetchickenofficial #backyardpoultry #backyardpoultrymag #backyardchickens #iamcountryside #countrylife #farm #farmlife #farmlifebestlife #farmanimals #crazychickenlady

I had to snap a picture of this guy before molting season starts and all his feathers are gone. As you may know, Percy is our dog. Yes, he is a turkey (Royal Palm Heritage Turkey, actually), but he thinks he is a person. He follows us everywhere and he is our guardian, so we lovingly refer to him as our family dog. I have to tell you though, even at his ripe old age of 4 years, he is still quite a tough guy. . . The other day, Dragoș and I were taking a nap when we heard our flock go nuts. The ducks were quacking, the guineas were screaming, and the turkeys were pow-ing (technical term 😉). I ran to the back porch just in time to see Percy’s third warning gobble as he lowered his tail, stretched his head out in front of him, tucked his wings back tight against his body, and took off running toward one of our big oaks. . . Percy looked so aerodynamic with his skinny little head poked out front, and I knew it was about to get serious. Out from behind the burl of the tree, I caught a glimpse of a red-tailed hawk on the ground. I let out my warning call to the birds “PEWWWW” (they know that sound means to take cover) just as Percy reached the hawk. . . And do you know what Percy did next? He jumped on that hawk’s face! He kicked him again, screaming his angriest scream, and that mean old hawk flew off into the woods whimpering! . . Sadly, the hawk took off with one of our guinea keets (farm livin’ - what ya gonna do?) but man-oh-man I am so proud of my turkey! . . Percy, farm protector, on duty 👮‍♂️ . . PS If you don’t have turkeys, you need some :)

One of my life long dreams was to own free-range chickens. To me, there is nothing better than watching chickens roaming free through the yard. My husband makes fun of me because whenever one of my chickens runs or does anything remotely adorable I just “light up”😂 I just can’t get enough. So here’s my #freerangethursday for @thehareandthehatterhomestead

#Repost @unconventional_acres with @get_repost ・・・ good morning! ☀️ - sooo...this isn’t my normal type of egg pic, but i was going through my pics last night after talking to a friend (who had some farm swag recommendations) and i when i scrolled past this one, it caught my eye! - for me, there’s so much more going on in this shot than just a bowl of eggs! - until last year i never knew i enjoyed photography...i have always liked pretty pictures, but it wasn’t until i started taking pictures of the farm that i realized it was something that i really enjoy! - someday when things slow down i would like to take some photography classes to learn more about this special art and skill. - in the meantime, i try to pick up what knowledge i can where i can! - ohhhhh and since this isn’t my normal type of pic...i personally prefer to take egg pics on overcast days ☁️ ...if it’s going to be sunny, then my next choice would be to take egg pics in the last possible minutes before the sun comes up over the hill and starts to casts shadows (if it’s too early it’s too dark and once the sun come ups then the shadows are too dark). - rainy days are also my fav! 🌧 - when are your favorite times of the day to take eggs pics? ☀️☁️🌧⛅️❄️🥚 - hope everyone has a wonderful day! 🙌 - - - - - - - - - #throwback #throwbackthursday #goodmorning #morningsun #riseandshine #stories #farmfresh #farmfresheggs #fresheggsdaily #eggsofinstagram #farmtotable #realfood #knowyourfarmer #eatlocal #supportlocal #madisonwi #wisconsin #wisconsinlife #wisconsingoodness #iamamodernfarmer #youngfarmers #backyardpoultrymag #iamcountryside #country_stilllife #countryliving #lifeonthefarm #lifeouthere #foodphotography #unconventional_acres

This week we are free ranging without a chaperone!!! Please pray for us that we don’t get eaten or hit crossing the road.

Who’s ready for the weekend? 🙋🏻‍♂️ This weekend, i’ll be out with the new hens, weeding the garden, and spending time with the bubs. All I need is for this pesky Thursday to be over with 😅 . . . And you’ll notice this is the first picture of our Buff Orpingtons! From @livestockconservancy: “During the late 1800s “Hen Fever”, that great public interest in strange and wonderful new chicken breeds from around the world, started to die down and in its aftermath a love of poultry remained, now tempered by a desire for practicality. Dual-purpose American chicken breeds were just reaching England where they were respected for their practical qualities, but disparaged for their yellow skin (the British preferring white skin). William Cook was a humble coachman living in the Kentish town of Orpington, in England, and he had an idea. He began crossing Minorca roosters with Black Plymouth Rock hens, and then the offspring to clean-legged Langshan chickens. His goal was to develop a hardy, fast growing chicken that laid well and yet had the table qualities the British market sought. In 1886 he introduced his creation to the public – it was a success and within 10 years Orpington chickens were well established in England and began to be exported to other countries.”

Me and my shadow! Mrs Beaky will follow me everywhere. She's my little ex battery hen, that I rescued, as she was going to be made into dog food! Exbattery hens are one of the most friendliest chickens you will have and I totally get that warm fuzzy feeling when I look at them knowing that they now have a new life and a second chance. If you can, please rescue, you will never regret it xx ❤ I have so much love for these special little chooks ❤ #exbatteryhens #exbatterychickens #freerangechickens #homestead #selfsuffiency #nocagedchickens #freerange #chooks #chickencoop #chickens #lovemychickens #henlove #henlife #mypetchicken #smallholding #secondchance #chickensofinstagram #nobatteryhens #rescuehens #rescuedpets #backyardpoultrymag #backyardpoultry #newlife #newbeginning #henstagram #petsmart #poultry #farmlife

Somewhere, under that hedge was a dachshund just trying to make new friends. Regrettably, the dachshund's social skills meant that he didn't meet a single bird ... let alone have to worry about being Friendzoned. . #nigelnofriends

Thanks for the awesome review, @lux_chicken. We work hard to meet expectations like yours for your feathered loved ones. 🐓 #Repost ・・・ Honest Review - We’ve been experiencing a lot of pest problems in our garden and our coop. Aspen Lux actually had a mites problem, it was about to infect our flock. I tried @first_saturday_lime (it has a lot of different uses) because it’s natural/organic and within a week I noticed major improvements. I put it on the floors of the coop and sprinkled it into some bedding and also put (just a little) into the dust bath area. I can already see how happier, healthier and cleaner she is yay! and the coop looks fantastic. On camera at night, I see not even close to 1/4 the amount of bugs and spiders in their coop. I’m going to try it in the garden next. Highly recommend 👉🏽 @first_saturday_lime #backyardchickens #cooplife #whywelime #silkies #chickencoop #poultryofinstagram #chickensofinstagram #coopsofinstagram #silkie #review #honestreview #customerfeedback #dirtbath #naturalalternatives #chickenmom #sunday #backyardpoultrymag
