This is my babies home of homes! In 2010 when I came home with 12 fluffy chicks my husband almost fell over. I told him we have 10 weeks to get a new chicken coop built! And so in June of 2010 he and I started to build the new Tajmahal I call the Fluffy Butt Hut, and he calls the Time Machine. (Because I loose all track of time when I am down with my girls.) We started looking at prebuilt sheds and plans. Hubby was sure that we could build one from scratch a lot cheaper than...

So you have found yourself in a predicament. You have had your heart captured by an innocent bird that wants nothing better than to lay her egg, cluck happily, run through the meadows chasing grasshoppers, and have good dreams from her roost at night.
My flock of 10 turned into 16 a few weeks ago. My affection for my girls and 'Bird is just never ending. I can not imagine living without them, nor life before them. Here are my 6 hens and 'Bird. my famous 'Bird. The BEST rooster in the world. He is a 3 year old Red Sex Link He's such a good and trusting boy. Every year he gets dressed up for halloween. This is this years costume. He came to work with me for a day. The Ohio State Extension office next door to me was having a poultry...
My addiction started at a VERY early age. I had a coop of about 20 birds growing up. My favorite hen wore diapers in the house, rode on the handle bars of my bicycle, and would go to school with me for show and tell. her name was Marla Sandra Chicken. Then, I did a crazy thing. I went to college, got married and had to work. A LOT, and far away - I couldnt have any chickens I didnt have the time for them. Then, I did a smart thing!!!!! I got transfered closer to home! What did i do in...

The two new little 'Ladies' that I added to my flock yesterday(10/11/10) are named "Elly" and "May". geeze... think of them as the Clampets. Both girls are from the city of Buffalo NY. I adopted them from the wonderful people of the Buffalo SCPA. After the 300 mile round trip getting them home, I let them loose in a little area of my coop that I had for them. They are so fragile, thin and small. But so sweet! Elly is the stronger of the two. She was found living under a porch and was...
