These pullets doesn’t really like walking around. But they’re energetic, jumps a lot, flapping around, whenever I’m with them.

@farmerpaulg of @primalpastures + @pasturebird is a modern day hero in the field of farming. His ethical methods bring us what we know to be the best chicken we’ve tasted. His story is incredible as a city guy gone country to feed his family and ours from the ground up and that is what we are all about at Eilo’s. Proud to work alongside all he and his family stand for.

Happy roosday Tuesday! Well it would be a happy one if Nugget stopped being a pain in the butt. Gone is my sweet clumsy rooster and in his place came a mean clumsy rooster. 🙄Boys, what can you do with them?

The 9th in our flock of freaks is this Naked Neck Turken we call Skeksi, a name we borrowed from the similarly looking Jim Henson creatures in The Dark Crystal film that came out in 1982 (scroll to the end for a snap of those characters to decide for yourself!). She is the most dinosauresque bird in the flock. Naked necks are an actual breed of chicken, so to answer the first question I get about her from most people: YES! she IS supposed to look like that. In all honesty though, we weren’t too keen on her at first when she hatched out from the unmarked, mixed breed fun & funky batch of hatching eggs we purchased from #mypetchickenofficial , but she has definitely surprised us with her bravery, cunning, and seemingly sentient & communicative abilities, and is now a well respected, core member of the flock. She doesn’t love to be cuddled, but she tolerates it, and is very patient while getting her picture taken. #doyathinkimskeksi : : #akfarmerychickenproject2018

We’ve had minor flooding here in Northern VA—a few of the rivers in the area have breached the banks, but it seems like the flock and I have avoided the worst of #hurricaneflorence. Stay safe everyone! Today, the ground is soggy, but that just makes for better foraging. 🐛 .- .- #chicken #chickens #hen #egg #chickenlove #hens #chickenlife #chickenlover #chickenlady #chickensofinstagram #chickensaspets #mypetchicken #mypetchickenofficial #chook #backyardchickens #happyhens #backyardpoultry #backyardpoultrymag #backyardchickens #urbanchickens #urbanfarming #urbanpoultry #virginia

Remember the tiny button the 3 silkie mamas hatched earlier this year? She has grown to be quiet the show girl. I dont know if shes cream legbar cross or bahama... but regardless she is so soft and cuddly and her blue/grey eyes are so cute! . . On a side note that has to be the best chicken bomb from crazy-hair-dont-care back there!!🤣

Who here has multiple flocks and keeps a separate coop for each? This coop belongs to a flock of silkies owned by @thrifty__farmhouse. ・・・ Love our little coop for our silkies 🌿 #chickensofinstagram #chickens #farmhouse #chickencoop #coops #diy #instachickens #silkies

On Today's episode of #tuesdayonthehomestead hosted by @whisperingmoonhomestead, we finally capture photos of the elusive purple broody easter egger 😂 . Yall, she hasn't even been laying a full month and she's broody! I'm pretty sure Im #broodycursed around here 🙈 . On the bright side, when spring gets here I'll have plenty of broody bitches to hatch me some babies 🤗🤗 . Oh, why is she purple? . Well, one Leg Horn needed blukote and was getting picked on for her purple head...so I made most of them have a little purple to take the attention off her. . Hubs is positive I just wanted punk rock chickens...eh, it's not completely out of the realm of possibilities 😉🤘🤘🤘 . . #homesteadmisfits #punkrockchicken #broody #alwaysbroody #chickensofig #backyardchickens #mypetchicken #farmhouse #country #vafarm #smallfarm #suburbanfarm #womeninag #agriculture #sustainableliving

city_girl_farming

Lost this girl last night. She’s been sick for a while and just couldn’t pull through. Julio came to me from friends who were moving two years ago. (They got her as an adult so we don’t know how old she was). She came into my flock effortlessly and without scuffle, and became the head of the flock. It was like she was made for it and everyone else knew it, too. Since she’s been sick (and I removed her from the flock), everyone has been a little edgy while they figure out the pecking order without her. Last night Lucy (one of my fav hens) and I walked her up the hill and buried her in one of the best spots to view the sunsets. RIP Julio. The flock won’t be the same without you. #youregonnabemissed #farmreality

Griffin really is so ridiculous! 😂🤣😂 She laid down like this for a good 20 minutes just wanting to cuddle and be pet.

Frost is my garbage disposal chicken. She eats anything and everything. She also has a bad habit of over preening her feathers 😒 I guess it makes her look extra fluffy #lavenderorpington #backyardchickens #mypetchicken #mypetchickenofficial

Ella is curious about everything and sometimes inquisitiveness can be dangerous !! I had a frighting incident the other day ,I heard a bunch of commotion in the run so I went out to see what the girls were squawking about and I found them all huddled around Ella she was hanging upside down from a planter looking lifeless,she had gotten her toe caught in a little fairy 🧚‍♀️ trinket, luckily she was ok 😅All of her sisters were heroes that day! #curiouschicken #duvallshappyhens #mypetchicken #chickensaspets #lifewithchickens #urbanchickens #backyardchickens #backyardpoultrymag #backyardhens #chickensareawesome #chickenofinstagram #easteregger #ella

...and then there were blue 💙 . . We’ve been patiently waiting for Khaleesi to start laying ever since our first egg. I saw her pop into the hen house yesterday as I was leaving for work and hoped and prayed it was her turn! I came home to these two beauties after a long day at work and my attitude immediately changed from tired and grumpy to a face full of smiles. . . I’m realizing how much raising these chickens have had an impact on me, teaching me responsibility, gratification, a new kind of joy, and a lot of patience. I’m so grateful for these little fluffy butts.

Lovely Buo-Tsunami. I think she looks like she's part eagle! Turns out, after a second vet visit, that she doesn't have heat stress, but Mareks, which can cause partial paralysis of legs and wings. For now, she is getting around ok, but has trouble standing up. She's still always looking for food and treats and snuggles with her sisters. We are taking it one day at a time here. All the cuddles and treats. 💗 . . . . . #cheeksfordays #denverhomestead #urbanhomestead #homestead #backyardchickens #farminthecity #backyardflock #loveofmylife #americauna #iwant1millionchickens #chickensofinstagramm #crazychickenlady #freerange #spoiledpets #pulletlife #pullets #chickenlife #chickenlove #speedyrecovery #spoiledrotten #mypetchicken #buo #tsunami #mareks #birbs

When I go to make eggs and realize we only have 2 left, and I can't even count on them as backups. so I go outside to tell off my feathered children how they are not contributing to our household. Luna just blatantly walks away from me and tries to eye me with her good eye and baby just pops out of no where and looks like a derp. Probably pretending she doesn't know what's going on. #chicken #chickensofinstagram #housechicken #bantamchickens #silkiechicken #sussexchicken #backyardchickens #urbanchickens #mypetchicken #outofeggs

Number 8 is this muppet, a Buff Laced Polish ROOSTER with the cutest damned face ever. We have 3 buff polish- 2 roos and 1 pullet. The roos have these thin, pointy head feathers and the girl has a softer, rounder, smaller head pouf (I’ll show a comparison when I can snatch them up at the same time!). They are SO FUN to watch while eating!😂 their funny heads bobbing up and down super fast as they peck snacks off the ground is one of my favorite things to watch in the mornings. They each have distinctive faces as well- this guy looks kinda sweet and goofy- the other roo looks a little meaner. Neither are aggressive or crowing. This guy really likes swinging and he often comes to visit at my feet. He doesn’t mind a snuggle but only tolerates it for the snacks/ he’s crazy for cracked corn! He’d probably eat until his crop burst if I didn’t stop him. I hope he has a mini crow so we can keep him😭😭😭😭 But I’m preparing myself for what I know is an inevitable decision- what to do with the cute ones? Hopefully someone will want them for their own flocks at locations larger than ours and they can live out their days loving on ladies and sunbathing. Know anyone who wants an adorable Buff Polish roo? 😬 : : #akfarmerychickenproject2018

Queenie, the spotted Mille Fleur d’uccle chicken, was happily laying on the left side of the nest box until she saw Lucky, the one-winged Easter Egger #chicken poke her beak in. Then Queenie quickly switched sides over to Lucky’s favorite spot, where she proceeded to sit and lay an egg. Lucky quickly followed suit, but let it be known that Queenie’s #egg was there first. 😂

Good morning! ☀️ “Mamacita” is partially blind from a hawk attack prior to her coming to live here. Sometimes she gets picked on because of it. But, that just means extra snuggles and her own little pile of scratch on top of the picnic table. ❤️ #chickensofinstagram #mypetchicken #silkies #silkiechicken

Holy cow! (Holy chicken?) I am thrilled, as you know, to finally have my very first eggs from our hens. To celebrate the first “fruits” I chose the most simple recipe - egg in a hole. This allows me to fully enjoy the flavor of the egg without a bunch of distracting flavors. And let me tell you, it is delicious! The egg is rich and flavorful and creates its own delectable sauce for the perfect crispy buttery bread. Who else loves egg in a hole?! • Check out my Live story to get the details on this quick recipe, with tips to get the perfect (or near perfect 😂) results, along with some backstory on our #backyardchickens . • • • • • #dietitiansofinstagram #chickensofinstagram #mypetchicken #soyouthinkyoucanfarm #dietitian #nutritionist #breakfast #crackingup #cracked #brekkie #eggs #putaneggonit

When you aren’t feeling well and you have dogs or cats, even if those animals aren’t into cuddling, most sense you are sick and will cuddle you all on their own free will. Most companion birds are no different and that includes pet chickens. Falcon is not a cuddlier but she suddenly becomes one when I’m feeling crappy. So much so that her body has to be right up on my face. 😂🤣😂 Silly girl I love her so much for this. ❤️🐓❤️ #sillychicken #lovingchickens #mustlovechickens #mypetchicken #chickensareawesome #chickensarepetstoo #cuddle #chickenselfiesunday #frizzlefrazzle #frazzlechicken #fluffypinecone

So we decided against giving away the chickens that adopted us, we fell inlove with them. We fixed the chicken pen up so it’s fox proof and attached a little yard to it. We made it nice and comfy for them with hay, grass and a section they can have their dirt baths. And most importantly, lots of yummy food! We figured that the owners weren’t looking for them or cared enough because they were no longer laying. Well, what’s this then? Happy, relaxed and loved hens equals eggs! This is our first egg, and we are acting like proud parents 😆. We were going to keep them regardless of whether they laid or not, because they truly do make great pets! #mypetchicken
