Look at all this variety!! We saved #heirloomtomatoes seeds from three tomatoes last summer and just threw them all together (smart move, right?😜) SOMEHOW I ended up with one of each!! So excited. The other two are #chadwickcherry and #blackicicle - man I love summer.

Tonight's winner is this BEAUTIFUL shop chicken from @frogcreekpeople! "Haven't done a #MeetmyChickenMonday or #RoosdayTuesday in a while. Meet Shop-Cock-A-Doodle-Doo! This #frogcreekchickabees gets picked on by the other "baby" roosters in the chicken yard so he high tailed it outta' that one coop town and adopted our mechanic shop as his new roost. The mechanics feed him bits of their lunches and Si set him up with his own waterer and feeder bowls in the shop. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈHe (the roo) follows everyone around cluckling away at them, telling them how to do their jobs, inspecting whatever they are working on and waiting for the next snack to be dropped his way as payment for his helpfulness. . Totally can't put this on my husband's biz account because it's so unproffessional to have this going down (even if it is temporary) πŸ€£πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ but I can put it here because y'all are my kind of people and know and love our silly country lovin' ways, right! Right?πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜˜ . If you love this, there is a good chance you will love our little chicken story we wrote, The Chickabees! Go and grab a copy! Link is in profile." . #crazychickenlady #crazychickenpeople #countryliving

🚨 Tonight 🚨 were finally giving #buckthechicken babies - any advice is VERY appreciated! Details belowπŸ‘‡ She's been broody off and on for a few weeks now - but on for a week this time. I moved her into her own coop late last night and she's still sitting on the eggs she had. We plan on doing this late tonight and we have a red colored light so we can hopefully not cause too much of a fuss.

Tonight's wommee is @the_young_homestead with adorable little Rosie!! - Rosie thought the little fluffy thing was pretty cool until it peeped at her...and she was outta there! πŸ˜‚ ・・・ This is one of my Black Copper Maran chicks for #meetmychickenmonday with @theporterfarm πŸ₯😁 I have 6 of them, and as much as I like to name chickens, they might not get names, because they all look the same! β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #blackcoppermarans #babychicks #chickens #lovemyfarm #countrylife #farmlife #simplelife #homestead #homesteading #homesteaders #homesteadlife #homesteadmom #montanahomestead #familyfarm #familyhomestead #instagramhomesteaders #farmlifebestlife #farmliving #hobbyfarm #farmher

Every time I get ready to introduce a broody to some brand new chicks she breaks.. WTH! This is #buckthechicken a couple weeks ago when I was still trying to break her.. and of course she persisted. I ordered four babies to give her Wednesday and she broke this morning 🀦🀦🀦 I'm really hoping she picks back up and I'm not stuck with brooder babies!! Introduce me to your chooks for Meet My Chicken Monday tonight!!! ((Use the hashtag and tag us to be entered! We're coming up on 3,000 HENtries)) #MEETMYCHICKENMONDAY #broodyhen #broodychicken #brooderbabies #babychicks #hen

Look who we found SOME HOW sleeping on top of the roof of the coop! Had to make my 6'+ husband come out with a latter to get her down for me. Crazy chooks. #howdidyougetupthere #crazychicken #chickensofinstagram #chickensdothedarndestthings

Okay.. none of these photos are in focus but I had to post this crazy egg we got today. Super thin shell, looks like the shell hardened in a flat position once it was laid. What do you guys think??

I think we all wish we were this chicken!! Thanks @finally_a_farmgirl for playing along this week!! "So this happened today and thought I would share it for #meetmychickenmonday hosted by @theporterfarm. You knew we would try it eventually. She was completely relaxed. I held my hand there just so she felt comfortable, but it was truly obvious she would have been happier if we handed her a sweet teaπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚" #swimmingchicken #tractorsupply #backyardpoultrymag #crazychickenlady #summer2018 #seventhheavenfarm #rir #backyardchickensofinstagram #chicken #hensofinstagram #happyhen #florida #summer #pool #theporterfarm #iamcountryside

Sentimental Saturday πŸ’› two of my first and most favorite hens. #shoshannathechicken and #chickenthechicken - they were some of my very first chickens and they were so special. They had the best chicken personalities - Shoshana was fisty and was never afraid to ask, aggressively yet loving, for a treat! Chicken, on the other hand, definitely lived up to her name.. she was the biggest baby!! πŸ’› I wanna hear about some of your chooks who you're missing or that just hold a special place in your heart! #sentimentalsaturday #chooks #missingmychickens #easteregger #rhodeislandred #backyardchickens #myfirstchickens #firsttimefarmer

Tonight's winner is from @17chickensandcounting - Meet Willodyne, one of our original six #leghorn chicks. She is definitely the frailest and most sickly of our flock. It seems every couple of months she has some new ailment, but she is a fighter and refuses to give up. She is also quit the escape artist. She is one of the few who always seems to find a way out of the fenced in yard. Or as of late she somehow gets into the littles side of the coop that is fenced off. Needless to say she has quit the personality and has really grown on us over time. . . #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachicken #urbanchickens #backyardflock #birdsofinstagram #homestead #backyardfarm #fresheggs #growyourown #indianapolis #monday
