Growing and Learning

I said in my last post I would post about our chicken run we built for the baby chicks to be outside in, yet safe from predators like hawks. And it works we have had a hawk try to get them in here without success. We have also used it to separate chickens as needed like when they are minor sick or injured. Keeps them outside … Read More Growing and Learning

Garden Delights

I love to garden and I know many of you do as well. (The worst part is the weeding, but the mulch this year has helped keep that to a minimum.) There are many things I love about gardening. I love to dig in the dirt, plant the seedlings or seeds, watch them grow, and the best part when you get to harvest. I … Read More Garden Delights

Baby Chicks Days Out

Our youngest chicks are now a month old and we have taken them out a couple times into the yard in a protected area for some grass play time when it is warm enough. Their play time was cut short today by a thunderstorm, but they seemed to enjoy the time they had. They had been playing out of their pen under a heat … Read More Baby Chicks Days Out

So in my last post I said I would tell you about our rooster… that we didn’t know and wasn’t supposed to be  a rooster. So our friends got us 4 chicks with their chicken order. They were supposed to be pullets. Well about a week or more ago now we were out in my garden trying to get it ready to plant. We … Read More Middle 4 Chickens…

Chickens are like potato chips…

You can’t eat just 1 or 2 or 5 or 10 or more -or- in this case can’t just have 5 or 10 or 20 or more… And with that in mind meet our newest baby chicks… Yes we just got 4 more about 2+ months ago, but one turned out to be a rooster (more on that later), we lost one of our buffs on Easter, and I … Read More Chickens are like potato chips…

Chick Adventures

The baby chicks have been getting out more now that it is warm enough and are learning many new things. Sometimes they learn together… And other times one or two will get brave and venture a little further solo before running back to the group… But they are never to far from me yet… Because Chase will herd them back if they do go … Read More Chick Adventures

Growing babies

Its been a fun experience so far with these girls. Each batch of chicks we have had has been slightly different in the way they interact with us, interact with each other, and depending the season how much they get out and how early. These girls like to pair up a lot. But which two are together usually depends on situation and who is … Read More Growing babies

Growing and Laying

Our baby chicks aren’t so babyish anymore… sad face 😦 Two of our Columbian Rock Crosses have started laying (but not the one pictured below)… And maybe even one of my New Hampshire…. Their eggs have been so little and cute 🙂 No yokes in them at first, but now they are getting a little bigger so we’ll see when I crack open a … Read More Growing and Laying
