My kitchen companion during the 2 second rainstorm we had over the weekend. Reny Roo is such a good boy in the house, and seems happy to be wherever I am. It's probably all the blueberry and banana noms he gets for being so sweet. Whatever the reason, I love having this guy around. #myblueberrylife #chickensaspets #roosterlovinmama #renrenroo #oliveeggers #sweetestroosterever #nocrow #bustlebutt #beardedbeasties

I'm so excited about the olive eggs we've been getting! They are such a cool color. Right now they are just pullet size but soon they'll be in the egg cartons! . . . #oliveeggers #oliveegg #modernfarmer #chickens #homegrown #growfoodnotlawns #knowyourfarmerknowyourfood

After a pretty significant summer hiatus, we’ve got some good color again!! I’ve seen more blues and greens in the last couple weeks, too. I guess the girls don’t like laying when the temps are >80° ! 🖤 #eggs #eggsofinstagram #rainboweggs #fbcm #oliveeggers #layinghens #chickensofinstagram

I’ve been crossing a dark laying breed with a blue laying breed to produce green (olive) laying hens. I chose the Cream Legbar as my blue breed due to bigger egg size than other breeds. It’s been a labour of love, but finally getting olive eggs this spring has been worth it :) #foxandbunnyfarm #perthhillshens #oliveeggers #perthhillsrainboweggs #freerangeeggs

It’s getting chilly around here! Almost wood stove time (my favorite ❤️)... My 8th generation Olive Eggers and French Black Copper Marans from @threelittleblackbirds are now painting in an almost fluorescent rust. I wish I could capture that in a photo, they are absolutely gorgeous. #cabinfeathers #cabinlife #fall #eggs #flowers #food #beautiful #fbcm #egg #eggsofinstagram #fresheggs #organiceggs

It’s #pulletbullet season! New ladies are laying and sadly all the Marans crosses are laying pale eggs. Sometimes they lay pale for a few rounds, but most of those birds should also have dark chocolate or dark green camouflage colors. Going to have to make sure there is a #leghorn Roo wandering the area.... #minotsledgepoultry #penedesenca #ameracuana #oliveeggers #browneggs #greeneggs #breakfast

Another egg this morning! 😍

the_hillside_homestead

Setting eggs in the incubator today, pray that I get a good hatch rate. . I'm trying a different technique with these eggs that was set and used by a man that hatched extremely rare and endangered bird eggs that were shipped halfway around the world. . I'm praying for at least a 50% hatch rate, last set of shipped eggs I had a 100% hatch rate, but those ones didn't take the trip here in an airplane, I'm pretty sure these ones did. . I also set 5 of my own farm eggs in with the shipped ones, they're pullet eggs and the chances of them developing let alone hatching is slim, but I can't wait to get my first fibro Easter Egger and fibro Olive Egger chicks. . . . #HatchingEggs #Hatchaholic #BlackCopperMarans #OliveEggers #FibroEasterEgger #FibroOliveEgger

We found a rooster :Black copper maran. His offspring should lay dark brown eggs. Carissa and I went to Unity to pick him up and she bought three Olive Egger hens to start her own flock. Along the way we found a thrift store that was having a 50% off sale so all the clothing and shoes were .50 or 1.00! Victoria got a .50 pair of Converse which is a blessing since she has been wanting a pair like her big sisters! Also stopped at 2 Amish stores. It was fun to look around and made me nostalgic for PA ☺ #Maine #unitymaine #Amishstore #chickens #oliveeggers #blackcoppermarans #rooster #flockofherown #thriftstore #thriftstoreshopping #thriftstoresale #converse #converseallstar

CHICK PROGRESS PHOTOS🐥⁣ ⁣ The chicks that hatched out on August 30 are about 5.5 weeks now, and they are feathering out beautifully! ⁣ ⁣ I’m starting with my favorites, the F3 Olive Eggers! They just get more gorgeous and unique by the day. Has anyone ever seen patterning like this? I keep trying to figure out what it is going to look like but I can’t find a photo of a traditional pattern type to match it? I know there are a lot of patterns out there and I’m still learning them so I’d love your suggestions if some of your chicks have started out like this. These come from my all black F2 Olive egger and my very copper BCM roo. Neither has any pattern, so the F1 cross (not mine) must be coming back out. ⁣ ⁣ Next up is a Blue Marans from some very quality lines I brought in from someone else. Anyone have a guess on pullet or cockerel? These guys are more petite than my line of Marans but with how thin the feet and legs are I’m going to hope pullet 🤞🏻 I love the blue lacing and the crazy green hazel eyes! ⁣ ⁣ And coming in last I’m showing you the one F3 Olive Egger cockerel that came out mostly black with a pea comb. The only pea comb out of the group! And most of the other F3 Olive Eggers have the copper lacing/spotting whatever you want to call it but not this guy. Hmmm 🧐🤔 genetics are really fascinating! ⁣ ⁣ And all the Black Copper Marans are in the ugly awkward stage right now just mostly black so I didn’t bother to photograph any of those 🤣⁣ ⁣ #chicks #chickens #breedingchickens #chickengenetics #genetics #oliveeggers #f3oliveeggers #bluemarans #marans #zephyrcreekfarms #backyardchickens

These color variations are amazing. One Olive Egger hen produces different tones and values! Some days they are dark green, some days they look grey, and some days they have speckles! So cool. Chickens are cool. #oliveeggers #markleyflock #markleyfarms

We brought a few new beauties home to our flock today, four Easter Eggers {three of four pictured} and two Olive Eggers {not pictured}. If all goes well, they should be gracing us with their blue, green and olive colored eggs come December when the old girls are on ‘winter holiday’. #thatmakes34 #chickenmath

I want to invite my followers to use the hashtag #poultrypantones to show me your colored eggs! Unlike some other hashtags I will not act like I own this—it’s a hashtag not a copyright 🤣 You can tag me if you want but if not I don’t care. I just like seeing all the creative ways you show off your eggs and all the varieties of colors. For those of you who don’t know, @pantone is a color system used for printing that gives each color a specific code of CMYK to mix to make an exact color. That way no matter what machine, or what system it’s printed on, the color appears the exact shade/tint it is supposed to. This is used a lot in company branding as a company’s color needs to be precise no matter where it appears for brand consistency. As a graphic designer, I fell in love with looking at giant color swatch books of Pantones long ago. Now my eggs remind me of them and I love it! Most of my chickens lay a very specific color and I can tell them apart even from another that is very close, like Pantones. (There are a few exceptions to every rule however, my Olive Egger fluctuates in shade often, and layers with heavy blooms can take on different tints.) You can even post your favorite color egg and pair it to the matching Pantone (google Pantone swatches) to tell people exactly what that shade looks like! Scroll to my second photo for an example. That way even people with only one color of eggs can play along too! I love combining my design knowledge with farming and I think this will be a fun hashtag to follow. Can’t wait to see some of the color inspiration you guys come up with! 🌈🎨❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 #poultrypantones #pantone #pantones #colorpalette #rainboweggs #eggrainbow #coloredeggs #colortheory #colorswatches #blackcoppermarans #goldencuckoomarans #oliveeggers #marans #creamlegbars #farmfresheggs #chickens

My favorite F3 Olive Egger female is looking so pretty! Her coloration and markings are fascinating. She was hatched from an all black F2 Olive Egger hen and El Colbre my very copper Black Copper Marans. Wondering if maybe the F1 had a lot of orange, copper, or partridge in her. Can’t wait to see how she turns out and what color she lays! She’s a keeper for sure! #F3OliveEgger #OliveEgger #OliveEggers #eggrainbow #rainboweggs #organiceggs #freerangeggs #pastureraisedeggs #npip #chickens #breedingchickens

Saturday struggles at our house: ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ DH: “which eggs can I eat for breakfast?” ⁣ ⁣ Me: “Well not these, these are for photographing, these are for the incubator...let me go to the coop and get some more...”⁣ ⁣ DH: “Why do we have eggs we can’t eat?!”⁣ ⁣ Me: 🙃😇😘

Introducing 5 of our new chicks: Harriet, Phyllis, Flora, Nefertiti, and Anck Su Namun. Harriet, the yellow one, is a Salmon Faverolle. Phyllis and Flora are the tan one with dark brown stripes and they are Olive Eggers. Nefertiti and Anck Su Namun are the dark brown ones and it’s probably obvious from their names that they are Egyptian Fayoumis. #cassellchickenfarm #oliveeggers #egyptianfayoumi #salmonfaverolle

With the Cream Legbars I got gifted this week, my Golden Cuckoos (second to bottom row) starting to lay, my Marans girl coming back from her broody break I was finally able to make another rainbow dozen (technically 14 in this tray ha)!

14 sweet little chicks joined the farm this weekend. Brooded by two heritage mamas we now have some more pure australorps and olive eggers! Possibly the last of my broody hens, but I think there just might be one more broody mama 💕 #theyearofthebroodyhen #oliveeggers #australorps #heritagechickens #farmlife #familyfarm #humblefarm

Happiness is sweet chicken snuggles. The Puddin' Pies (all of the new arrivals have been renamed after our favorite pies and pudding flavors since the kids of their previous family weren't terribly interested in naming them all which resulted dubious monikers) were removed from quarentine and placed with our existing flock last night. The Peepertons (our original flock that are all named after spices) are behaving for the most part. While we utilized quarentine and soothing dried herbs to help keep the new pecking order brawls to a minimum, as the bottom of the pecking order in the new flock, the transition has been the most stressful on Butterscotch. Noticing that she was feeling unnerved and outnumbered, I spent some time giving her some extra love, attention, and encouragement. When she started to drift off to sleep in my arms, I gently placed her on the ground near a couple of her flockmates. She quickly joined them and began exhibiting normal activities (eating, scratching, and generally puttering around). Feeling more relaxed myself now that she had settled a bit, I reveled with gratitude that the soothing effect of chicken snuggles is a two way street. #wearefarmily #happinessis #thelittlethings #thegoodlife #simplepleasures #sustainability #farmily #chickens #fresheggs #eastereggers #oliveeggers #rhodeislandreds #flock #chickensnuggles #homesteading #sustainableliving #sustainability #animaltherapy #puddinpies #peepertons #chickensofinstagram

So any of you chicken people out there ever order buff orpingtons and have pullets as red as these? I know they are going to molt these and grow in adult feathers but they are so red. 🧐 Verrry curious... And then of course, any time I sit or hunch down Pixie and Dixie are all over me. 😒😂 They love me so much and I love them so much too💞

A friend asked for 3 dozen eggs this week, I wasn’t sure I could pull it off as a lot of the girls are moulting, but we had a decent dozen today alone, so combined with the eggs this week, I managed it. Took the extra time to colour co-ordinate too (there’s an extra box of 6 incase you’re wondering! 😉) #fresheggs #fresheggsdaily #rainboweggs #maranseggs #oliveeggers #greeneggs #eastereggers #leghorns #vorwerkchicken
