Nothing happier then five hens and their raspberries and yogurt 🐓. They certainly aren’t concerned with my boots laces now. I only give them yogurt occasionally, they LOVE it and it is suppose to be good for their digestion. Since breakfast was a bit bland this morning I thought this would be a nice pick-me-up for them until I get their Flock Blocks made. . . #chickens #backyardchickens #raisingchickens #chickenvideo #blog #homestead #chickenlady #isabrown #layinghens #talesfromthecoop

Jeri laying her egg 🍳 This pretty lady laid her first highly anticipated egg yesterday. She laid another today. Her eggs were highly anticipated because they were supposed to be blue. Well, they’re brown. Very disappointing 👎🏼 Her pretty looks make up for it. Unless you don’t like Turkens. I personally love them!!

We got our first egg today! I don’t know who laid it, other than that it was one of the Americaunas because of its lovely color, but I’m so excited! It’s a beauty. And a good size for my young hens. #chickenlady #farmfresh #layinghens #firstegg

Giving these girlies a second chance at life. Commercial laying hens spend about 18 months of their life confined and producing a high volume of eggs. Once they’ve reached that age they are killed and disposed of like trash. Legally they can’t even be used for food products. It’s a sad process one I’ve witnessed personally and some of the images I’ve seen still haunt me. I am so thankful there are people that can get these girls out once they’ve reached their commercial expiration date and give them an opportunity to experience real life as a chicken on different farms. These girls will also go continue to be great layers for years. This is why I’m such a supporter of small farms. I don’t believe that eating animals or using animal products is wrong by any means but there is ethically a right way and wrong way to do things. When money becomes more important than morals animals will suffer in the process. Can’t wait to let these girls experience a whole new life at the Font Farm. Additionally I’m sure I’ll be gifted with plenty of fresh delicious eggs to add to my already full basket. #farming #ethicalfarming #layinghens #freedomride #savinglives #supportsmallfarms #supportlocalfarmers #redstarhen #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chickenlover #crazychickenlady #farmlife #farmgirl #farmer

Ever wondered why some egg yolks break, some egg whites look cloudy or transparent? An egg consists of more than just a white and yolk.

Well, it’s day 4 of snow on the ground and I’m over it. Our barn is a pretty decent walk uphill. Our cars and four wheelers are snowed in, so we have to walk it every time the animals need to be taken care of. Trekking through 18 inches of snow to get to the barn gets really old really fast. I love the snow, but it has prolonged its stay. I truly cannot wait for the green to come back. For now I’ll just look at old pictures from last spring and reminisce 😊

After an almost 3 month hiatus of egglaying, the hens have decided to start being moderately useful again. (Possibly because they overheard our conversation about what to eat for Christmas dinner.) #backyardhens #layinghens #fresheggs #freerangehens #localfood #localeggs

Since I have started wearing my winter boots in the #coop the girls promptly untie my laces the minute I arrive. They have tried to grab them and run only to be disappointed with the fact these mysterious black worms on my feet just won’t budge. 🐓😂❤️ . . #raisingchickens #backyardchickens #chicken #vlog #blog #isabrown #layinghens #chickenvideo #chickenlady #talesfromthecoop #homestead #countryliving

I have to feel sorry for one of my girls. She lays a HUGE double yolker Every. Single. Day. The rest of those eggs are the size of the extra large eggs you can by at the store. And then there's that behemoth in the middle. She's never layed a normal egg. It's like the human equivalent of birthing a 20 lb baby every day. . #chickengirls #artandchickens #heritagechickens #backyardchickens #homesteadinglife #minnesotahomestead #newpraguemn #chickenmom #layinghens #leghorn #roadislandred #freerangechickens #homesteading #justaddcloth #chickensofinstagram #farmfresheggs #smallfarm #smallfarms #smallfarmlife #poultrylife #northernchicken #winterchickens #chickenrun #bawkbawk #bawkbawkbawk #doubleyolk #doubleyolker #doubleyolks #bufforpington #fresheggseveryday

So much has happened in the last few days. We got 18 inches of snow and everyone hates it, except for the dogs. Juneau, the new puppy, loved her first snow. A few days ago I went into the chicken coop to collect eggs. My heart literally stopped when I saw an opossum sleeping in the egg box. Opossums are one of the top chicken enemies, so I wasn’t happy to see him. He ate a bunch of eggs, took a nap, and moved on. Thankfully he didn’t touch the chickens!! Swipe to see pictures of the opossum and the animals in the snow ❄️

This girls are still laying 😃🐓 The days are so short and cold I would be happy with any amount of eggs but the fact that all 5 are still at it delights me. We have been giving eggs to the neighbours, family, my hairdresser even got some and there are always more then enough in the fridge. It’s a much healthier Christmas gift option then your standard box of chocolates 😜Sorry Pot of Gold you’re out this holiday season and the egg basket is in . . . . #raisingchicken #backyardchickens #layinghens #fresheggs #eggs #browneggs #isabrown #blog #homestead #chickenlady #eggsofinstagram #chickensofinstagram

This guy 😍 . . . . . I’ve received a bunch of messages asking about what I feed my birds (and even Roanie and Calendula) and am wondering if it would be helpful to do a post or stories about the mixture I make? (Might even include a trip to the beach if I can get my act together! Yes, to the Atlantic Ocean for my birds!) Let me know in comments (also, do you like info posts? I can’t tell sometimes if they’re helpful or annoying?)

The joy of finding clean eggs in the nesting boxes ✨🙌🏻. . . Since we installed the French drains and added a bunch of new sand and dirt to the chicken coop this week, our eggs have been exponentially cleaner and the chickens no longer have mud constantly caked all over their feet. It has been dry since we installed the drains, but we are supposed to be getting a rainy wintry mix over the next few days, so that will be the true test of our new French drain system. Although we really aren’t looking forward to multiple days of cold rain, we are excited to see if our drainage intervention actually works! Hope everyone stays warm and dry this weekend! . . #freerangechickens #fresheggs #happinessishomegrown #colorfuleggs #speckledeggs #handgathered #layinghens #hobbyfarm #farmsweetfarm #lifeouthere #simplepleasures #raisingchickens #eggsofinstagram #eggstagram #sharemymucks

These ladies should be ready to lay around the beginning of the new year. Until then they are staying warm in the greenhouse sanitizing it if bugs and weed seeds.

Now that the nights are colder I try to remember to give the girls a serving of whole corn about an hour before sunset. It takes them longer to digest and in turn raises their body temperature helping to keep them warm. They aren’t all fans of it, but by the time I go back out to tuck them in for the night it is all gone. So somebody is enjoying it. Enid and Tilly have stained bottoms here from their afternoon dust baths 😂seems ironic doesn’t it. . . #chickens #chickensofinstagram #raisingchickens #backyardchickens #isabrown #layinghens #blog #homestead #countryliving #hens #chickenlady

❤️ My flock. I missed these beauties! ❤️ . And I am definitely ruined for eating eggs anywhere but at home. We went to a sweet little cafe in Reno for breakfast on the last day and paid extra for local, free-range eggs. But they were as pale as can be! I suppose there was snow on the ground there, but maybe that’s why raising birds in Louisiana has its perks (and downfalls — hello 65 inches of rain per year 😬). . Our yolks aren’t always as dark as I’d like them to be, depending on the time of year (and I learned this summer that wheat, barley and sunflower in their feed mix disproportionately lighten yolks even when birds eat a lot of grass and bugs!). . But now that we’re figuring out what annual forages we can plant year round to go with the perennials on the pasture, there’s going to be a lot of green for our girls to eat all the time. 🤗 . . . . . . #myflock #chickenslikegrass #dusk #pasturedeggs #freerangeeggs #rotationalgrazing #chickenflock #eggmobile #chickens #mixedflock #chickensofinstagram #freerangechickens #pasturedpoultry #pasturedchickens #pasture #chickensofig #sustainablefarming #sustainableagriculture #regenerativeagriculture #layinghens #hens #egglayers #farming #farmlife #lifeouthere #countrylife #iamcountryside #country_features #raw_country #backyardpoultrymag

Keeping her babies warm 😍 The dedication that broody hens have is truly amazing. She’d lay in the rain and cover her chicks with her own body. Every night she sleeps on the ground so that her chicks stay warm. As the snow storm approaches, she’ll continue to cover them in her wings despite the fact that they’re almost 2 months old and can take care of themselves.

Even when I have the day off there is no sleeping in. I have to get up, bundle up and go check on the girls and deliver breakfast. Most would say isn’t that a pain, I guess to some it might be but I just love raising these chickens so it doesn’t feel like work. Everyone gets a big happy good morning and they know what that means when they hear it....FOOD! This morning their surprise is a leftover pancake somewhere in the run along with their regular breakfast mash. I try to put treats in different spots in the run to help reduce squabbles. Enid and Tilly get a bit pecky if there is just one dish and sadly dear old Gertie seems to take the brunt of it. Spreading dishes and treats around gives everyone a fighting chance to get some and saves them from hurting each other. . . . #raisingchickens #backyardchickens #isabrown #layinghens #talesfromthecoop #chickens #chickenlady #hens #homestead #countryliving #blog
