I am contemplating a spring cleaning on the chicken coop. I am afraid we might get one more cold snap and the deep litter will be needed. Mar 11, 2018

      My Buff Orpington layed her first egg today. Now we are getting up to six eggs a day!

      Can you believe after my last status update the girls started laying? We are getting 5 eggs a day. I am so proud of them.

      One of the hens was sitting in a nesting box. I have come to the unfortunate conclusion that my hens likely won't lay until next spring.

    new to raising chickens
    Hi,
    My name is Daisy. I am new to chickens. I just got my first flock a week and a half ago, 14 ladies and one boy. I went with a mix because I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted. I went with a Golden Laced Wyandotte Rooster. I also have 3 GL Wyandotte hens, 2 Dominiques, 2 RIR, 1 Red Star, 1 Buff Orpington, 3 Barred Plymouth Rock, 1 White Leghorn, and 1 Australorp. I would love to add Buckeyes, Welsummers, and Columbian Wyandottes to the flock, but I am going to wait to see how these gals work out.
    I am a preschool teacher and we incubate eggs every year. A couple years ago we decided to keep 2 of the chickens. Now we have Henny Penny (a Red Star) and Silly Goose (a Columbian). The children love to feed and count the eggs every day. I was weary about raising so many chick to start out, so my boss agreed to take one of the hens to join our school flock. I am waiting to learn their personalities a little better before deciding which lady to take to work with me. One of the RIR is going to be joining a friends flock. She lost her favorite leghorn to a hawk and wants to round out her flock again, but didn't want to raise the chick.
    When I am not wiping chicken bottoms...pasty butt is gross...I like to knit, go fishing, and hanging out with my family. I am married and we have three boys between us. They are 25, 23 and 12 years old. I am also a Memaw to a jovial 2 year old. I can't wait for him to meet the chickens. He is going to love them.
    Besides the chickens, we have Annie, a six year old black lab. We recently had our 13 year old cat put down so the chicks have been a nice distraction. We love to feed and watch the the wild birds, especially the humming birds. After adding a waterfall feature to the back yard we gained resident frogs and tadpoles; much to my enjoyment.
    I found this site when researching chicken breeds on the internet. I am probably going to need a ton of help but I think the members of this site will make this a pleasant experience. Thank you, in advance, for your advice and lending me your "ear."

    I dream of a better world where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
