Our little chicks, Maple, Golda, Peggy, and Dottie, aren’t so little anymore. We’ve lucked out that they are so well mannered around the kids and other animals. They’re not nearly as skittish as our original flock. I guess that’s what comes of brooding your chicks in a clear rubbermaid container in your living room. 😉
❤️ Pretty Rosa ❤️ She’s such a sweet, well mannered little hen and still lays like a champ at 4 years old. She was also the first to allow FM and Violet into their close knit Hennie circle and is the only one who allows them to eat from the same bowl without throwing any pecks down.
This is how I feel about the weather today 😂😆
Rainy and in the 30’s! Yuck.
I just love this guy, don’t you!?!
One of our young Olive Egger roosters. He is just so friendly and curious. He will jump right into my lap! I love him! 😍
The snow came and melted, leaving bitter winds behind. All I could do was suddenly jump into the holiday mood! I filled the girls’ run up with straw to protect their little feet and make it easier to get to their food and water. If you missed it, I shared a new blog post with more tips on how to care for your chickens in the winter time last week. One of those is to use a black rubber pan as a waterer, the kind you can find at the feed store. This material takes longer for water to freeze, and I have found this very true!! Plus when the water eventually does freeze, it’s super easy to just shake the pan and the ice falls right out to be refilled. Love!
