    Black Acres: The chickens that saved me

    I am absolutely going to save back some egg money to purchase at least two heated drinkers for next Winter. I’ll get them sooner if I come across a good sale but we’re at least halfway though the frozen water part of our winter this year. Right now I’m using rubber bowls because they’re flexible...

    4/11 from the bigs! All new layers and confirmed my suspicion of one of the Marans laying as I caught her in the act! 1/3 bantys

    Black Acres: The chickens that saved me

    They do! That’s actually the reason I got her. I’m so glad I did though because she’s a sweetheart!

    Black Acres: The chickens that saved me

    It is fascinating to me all of the different colors an egg can be. I have a Cream Legbar that will lay blue so I can’t wait for her to reach POL. I don’t have any that will lay white. All shades of brown except the Legbar. I’d love to get an olive egger! 🌈

    Black Acres: The chickens that saved me

    She’s doing well! I’m good too. Just been keeping a close eye on her and serving as her personal chef and waitress along with all of my other daily tasks so I’ve been very busy. Thank you for checking! The cold fingers is what gets me. I’ve yet to find gloves that are good for chores. Warm...

    Black Acres: The chickens that saved me

    I think Sammy will mellow out. I think the new layers just have him a little egg-cited. 😆 Daughter is doing well. She’s very bored and tired of being stuck in her room. So far, no one else has any symptoms. My son had it back in August and I managed to nurse him without catching it, hopefully...

    Black Acres: The chickens that saved me

    A few days ago we had a bright, sunny day so the chooks took full advantage and came out to forage for scratch. The splash up front is one of my new layers. She’s a Marans mix so she’s giving me beautiful dark brown eggs! ❤️ Sammy’s teenager hormones have finally caught up to him and he’s been...

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one who get excited over snow, especially a good snow! It’s not fun for chores but I still love it!

    How Many Eggs Did You Get Today?

    The banty coop has 3 mixed Serama hens and 4 Silkie pullets. The Silkies aren’t laying yet as they’re not quite 5 months old. The mixed Seramas are all laying and I’m wondering if one of them may be quite a bit older than I was told when I got them. The entire process of getting them was filled...

    Yes. They have free feed oyster shell and I also feed back scrambled eggs and shells on occasion.

    How Many Eggs Did You Get Today?

    I had a soft shell yesterday from the bantam coop. I’m beginning to wonder if one of them is short circuiting 😆 In the last few weeks I’ve had one fairy egg, one soft shell egg, and one egg laid out in the run. None of them have ever laid outside the coop.

    Hey y’all! Sorry I’ve been MIA for a few days. The dreaded covid has had me busy caring for my daughter. She is doing well, but bare with me as I continue nursing her. Thank you guys for keeping the thread alive in my absence. I love seeing the photos! It’s been cold and dreary here the last...

    How Many Eggs Did You Get Today?

    OMG I just happy danced all the way from the coop to the kitchen! Someone in the big coop is finally laying!!! I suspect at least two, actually. I didn’t thoroughly check the coop last night when locking up. I only peeled in the nest boxes and they were empty. Tonight I peeked in and they were...
