I have never made a page of my entire flock, so here they are! The whole kit and kaboodle!: Dumpling (Light Brahma): Bossy, loud, controlling, she ALWAYS has to have her way, and friendly. Thumper (Light Brahma): Curious, sometimes sweet, quite, can be bossy, and docile. Muffin (Easter Egger): Sweet, docile, kind, submissive, friendly, and quite. Bunny (Easter Egger): Independent and curious. Queen (Easter Egger): Skittish, curious, and sometimes friendly. Penny (Rhode Island Red): Very...
Yep, that's what I said. Once chickens learn that the coop is home and is safe to return to- they will return every evening. But there are just some chickens who are "independent" and like to roost in trees and even some man-made structures. Even with feed and a great coop, some birds just want to roost elsewhere. Back in the day, chickens were totally, 100% free range and would roost in trees. And their owners knew about the risk of predators, but most people lived on farms and could...
The Story Of Elf We brought Elf home on March 10th, 2016. We had around 15 chickens, and wanted to add a few more. So we went to our local Co-op and picked out 8 chicks, 2 Easter Eggers (Elf was marked as an EE), 2 White Leghorns, 2 Production Red's, 1 Black Sex Link, and one Black Australorp. I was so excited, and had my fingers crossed that they would all turn out to be girls. Here is a picture of...

Okay, so the day has come when you decide to add a rooster, or two, or three- to your flock of hens. Or maybe you accidentally ended up with one. Whatever your case, every rooster is different. Most roosters get the bad reputation of being mean and will attack everything and anyone. But wait, before you rehome your rooster without a second thought lets discuss the pro's and con's of keeping a rooster. Pros: 1. Roosters are usually more flashier and colorful than hens. Yes, its true. You...
Lester is a White Silkie Bantam and is the sweetest chicken around, she is patient and gentle and has never hurt any other chicken. She always follows me around begging for treats. She is spoiled rotton. During the afternoon and in the evening she likes to take a nap in my lap. We thought she was a cockerel and named her Lester but we found out she was a pullet, I guess the name just stuck. I love her! Lester stopping to get a picture. Lester resting under a bench on a rainy day. Lester on...
