Remember our little cherub from yesterday? This was him before he got his angel wings! He's just a popcorn puff with fluffy nubs! 🤣😍 UPDATE / EDIT *** He's not d-e-a-d; see my previous post where I talk about what his little wings remind me of 😉👼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm still trying to come up with the perfect short list of names for our little Roo men. I'll post the contenders once I finally make up my mind! 😬😉😘⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #babychicks #babyanimals #iamcountryside #countrysideandfarmlife #modernfarmer #mypetchickenofficial #lovecountrylifestyle #crazychickenlady #homesteadlife #chickensaspets #citychickens #chooks #farmher #farmlife #countryliving #backyardchickens #backyardflock #urbanchickens #chickens #chickenlife #henstagram #hens #happyhens #happychickens #chickenlove #chickensofinstagram #fresheggs #tractorsupply #backyardpoultrymag

They just seemed like fairy wings to me; after all these years, the world can still seem like a magical place with a little imagination 🧚‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love how cute these little guys are at this stage — the way their wings start to grow such delicate rows of tiny feathers — the way each wing stands out against their fuzzy little down bodies — the chicks look just like roly-poly little cherubs! 👼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In honor of LOVE YOUR PET DAY, here's a little bit of love from the cherubs in our flock to yours! xo 🐓🐇🦙🦢🐑⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #LoveYourPetDay #babyanimals #babychicks #iamcountryside #countrysideandfarmlife #modernfarmer #mypetchickenofficial #lovecountrylifestyle #crazychickenlady #homesteadlife #chickensaspets #citychickens #chooks #farmher #farmlife #countryliving #backyardchickens #backyardflock #urbanchickens #chickens #chickenlife #henstagram #hens #happyhens #happychickens #chickenlove #chickensofinstagram #fresheggs #tractorsupply #backyardpoultrymag

Happy Friday! Rain, rain, go away! I’m not sure about you all, but we are drenched here in Central Virginia. And after yesterday’s reprieve, it’s raining AGAIN. This year alone, we are on our way to seven inches of rain. Last year we endured 63.5 inches of rain - more than Seattle. All farmers across Virginia are praying for sunny skies and fewer rain drops! . The hens are NOT disappointing! Look at this week’s colors! Every time I go to the egg boxes I get giddy...like a child in a candy store. Mike says the number one reason he doesn’t collect the eggs is bc it seems to make me happy. 😉Smart guy! I keep hoping one of my Marans will produce the deep chocolate color eggs... to no avail. So I’m resorting to PLAN B. I’m certain our new arrival of chicks (this week) will help me fill our #eggrainbow! . Sharing w/ @happydaysfarm #eggvignette!

Mel 🤩 (she and her counterpart, Sue, are named after the hosts on the Great British Baking Show) The poofs on their heads really impair their vision. You can sneak up on them and pick them up. They never see you coming 😂 We had a bad fox issue many months ago, and by some miracle, these two survived it. I’m glad they did, because they’re real characters on the farm!! And the fox is gone and we haven’t lost a bird in a long time!

Omg we destroyed the plumbing section and then totally changed our minds. I didn't realize there are 50 zillion different freaking PVC elbows. Why is life always so complicated? I am not the type of person that needs choices. They make me anxious. So we settled on a 5 gallon bucket with 3" 90 degree elbows for our new chicken feeders. We've got one already and it works wonderfully. Why try something new? Because. I have issues with always wanting to try something new even when the old thing works great. I call this being adventurous, hubs calls it something else...whatever 🐓😉 . #backyardflock #backyardchickens #poultry #poultryfeeder #diy #streamline #lesschores #omg #shopping #mylittlehelper #chickenbutt #chickens #urbanchickens #urbanhomestead #backyardfarm

Today has been pretty special... errands with my Mr., Chiropractor visit to straighten up what the slip in the slush did..., then a fun trip to Rural King for chicken supplies. Guess what, it is “chick days”. They have a great selection of baby chicks, day old to four weeks old and sadly I did not bring any home. 😕 But I met a new friend who was also shopping for chicken supplies. 🙂Mr D found this really cute tee for me, “Did You Hug Your Chicken Today?” Now I am returning to my chores to make use of the supplies...It is a hen house cleaning party 🎉 Anyone want to join? 🐓🐥 #chickens #gottalovechickens #woodlandhomestead #blessedlife #dreamer Have a super duper weekend folks!

Messy Mildred Salty Egg Bombs can be used for egg-bound hens to encourage release of that stubborn egg. They can also help soothe irritated skin, body aches, and bumble foot. Simply fill a wash tub or sink with warm water and 1 to 2 Salty Egg Bombs. Place your feathered friend in their salt bath, turn on their favorite music, and watch their aches meltaway. 🐓🥚🛁🎉 .

It’s the time of year y’all! We decided on getting some ducks and Turkeys this year! We debated on getting more layer hens but we accumulate SO many eggs from our girls that we can’t even get through them all and just give them away to neighbors! So we decided on Meat Chickens. Yup we are gonna attempt to butcher our own chickens this year! 😆 hope everyone has a great weekend! #ducks #turkeys #poultry #farmlife #farmlifestyle #homesteadinglife #nakedneck #homestead #butchering #chickens #countryliving #farm #countrylifestyle #homesteading #gardening #veggies #growyourownfood #ruralking

Eggs patiently waiting to be incubated 🥚🐣 we’re hoping many of these are fertile 🤞🏻 The plan is to select a few each day and by Sunday/Monday they will be put in the incubator, and in another 21 days we’ll hopefully have some spry baby chicks 🐤🤓 #chickeneggs #chickensofinstagram #eggincubator #chickens #colorfuleggs #babychicks #cuckoomarans #eastereggers #brownleghorns #freerangechickens #hobbyfarm #lichtenbergwoodburning #soapstonecountertops

Refreshed the front entryway today with a few touches of spring. Naturally, I color coordinated the pillows to match the painting of our rooster, Clem. Doesn’t everyone do that sort of thing? Hang a rooster portrait in the front hall? Color coordinate with said rooster? No? 🤔😂 . . . . . . . #chickens #chickencollector #chickenart #chickenlife #backyardflock #chickenmama #crazychickenlady #crazychickenladiesofinstagram #backyardpoultrymag #iamcountryside #countryliving #lifeouthere #fwi0222 #petsofinstagram #chickengram #dominiquechicken

Y’all, there is something so wonderful about spending time with this little lady. She never complains when I make her pose or do silly dances for my own amusement.

RIP Blondie 😭🐔❤️ Sadly yesterday our first ever Buff Wyandotte passed away. She was four years old this month. We still have two of her daughters (the Buff twins, because they are so identical we can’t tell them apart). Blondie was one of Mr’s original hens, part of the second flock we ever had. I hope you enjoyed your time at Hermit House and the golden fields beyond our borders. You will be missed little one. ❤️🐔❤️ #rip #ripchickens #buffwyandotte #wyandotte #backyardchickens #backyardchickensofinstagram #chickendeath #hens #hensofinstagram #chickens #chickensofinstagram #poultry #poultryofinstagram #hermithouse #hermithousehomesteading #høns #død #hønsihaven #danmark #denmark

مرغ ابریشمی از جمله مرغانی می باشد که استعداد بسیار خوبی در تخم گذاری، جوجه کشی و پرورش جوجه های خود دارد به همین دلیل بیشتر به منظور جوجه کشی و پرورش جوجه های سایر ماکیان کاربرد دارد. تاریخچه پیدایش این پرنده دقیقا مشخص نیست ولی در سال 1874 در آمریکای شمالی به رسمیت شناخته شد. این مرغ برای اولین بار در چین یافت شد و از طریق جاده ابریشم به کشور های غربی نیز راه یافت. مرغ ابریشمی در رنگ های سفید، سیاه، زرد کمرنگ، طوسی، کبکی و اسپلش یافته شده است. __________________________ #birds #gamebirds #birdsofinstagram #birdwatching #birdphotography #instagramarizona #birding #bird_brilliance #birdstagram #birdlife #wildlife #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #quail #pheasants #ducks #turkeys #bestbirdshots #your_best_birds #birdlover #chickens #peacocks #woodducks #birdsofarizona #arizona,

Ralph, those eyes melt me! This guy isn’t fun to catch, but when you do, he settles right into your arms and soaks up the snuggles. He’s so solid at 7 months and I’m certain he’s not done growing yet. His feathers look like fire - like his eyes! He is really a perfect rooster. He tends to his girls very well, and they listen! I hope he will do as well when the 28 other pullets are introduced. Currently they are only separated by a baby gate. Hopefully he doesn’t get overwhelmed! Check out my story for a video of our snuggle session for #farmvideofriday with @unconventional_acres ❤️ • • • #rooster #maransrooster #bluecoppermarans #chickens #lovemyflock #chickensnuggles #backyardpoultrymag #featheredfriends #lovemychickens #redwattlewednesday #iamcountryside @dreamercreations_photography #poultry

There have been quite a few new followers here lately so I think it is time to have a #fridayintroductions 😄 My name is Ashley (I always feel weird saying that here when it is probably obvious given my IG handle but it’s just proper manners right?!😅) and my family and I live in Midwest MI. I grew up in the conventional dairy industry and started my first job at 11 years old milking cows. Which led to me purchasing my own small herd of registered Holsteins that I dragged all over the state (and even went to World Dairy Expo once) showing them at association events and 4H shows. When I “graduated” high school I sold my cows but stayed in the industry until I had my babies. Becoming a parent was a catalyst to my current passions and beliefs. After having babies I started researching EVERYTHING. I am not kidding you. And what I found was that a lot of what we have been told is very, very wrong. And that a lot of the “systems” we have in place are meant to keep us slaves (ahem dairy industry, cough, healthcare industry). So after opening my eyes and seeing real truth I swore off the conventional dairy industry and haven’t looked back. Now this is NOT a stab against dairy farmers. Many dairy farmers are the kindest (albeit most stressed 😆), most generous, giving, hardest working folk I know. This isn’t about them. This is about the industry that has made them slaves. And I get it! It is SO hard to change, especially when you have a whole business and livelihood on your shoulders. But it doesn’t make the corruption of the system okay. Whew! How did we get here?!😅😅😅 Anyway, I am Ashley, believer in researching EVERYTHING, passionate about freedom and stewarding our earth properly, maker of real food and good soil, lover of babies and family, encourager of growth and change, baker of exclusively sourdough bread and things, and advocate for real health. Oh and I am known for going off on random rants 😅 welcome to the first of many 😆 Now your turn! Describe to me in 5 words or less your cooking style! 😄

Meet Hank, he does important things like protecting the yard and waking us up. He is also keen on waiting just outside the door for me to throw him some scratch each morning. Animals are such characters, I love giving them people names, and it adds a bit of mystery when I say ‘Hank is at the door, I gotta go.’ 🙃 #settlerspeace #hobbyfarm #rooster #chickens
