Chickens Stories from Our Nest

Harmony in the Hen House

It’s been a while since I have shared any stories about the girls.  Perhaps, that is because we have finally found a flock that jives with personalities.  There are no more roosters to wreak havoc.  There are no more bully hens. The chicken drama has been gone for a while. Everything and everyone has just settled into their daily routines.  I do have to admit that it is a wonderful thing knowing that everyone is happy.  Of course that doesn’t mean that there isn’t an occasional fight over a goodie that I have shared from the kitchen.


Or that our Silkies have stopped going broody every three weeks.
Or that Sunshine can’t resist eating an egg now and then…Bad chicken.



Or that 4 chickens don’t try to cram into the same hole for a dust bath.  Yes, there are 4 chickens in there.
I think that there is definitely something to be said for harmony in the hen house.

Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

  • Love it when there's calm in the chicken yard!

  • I agree!
    My five ladies are a most harmonious flock but number six is not yet old enough to move into the coop….!

  • Amen to harmony in the coop. I know exactly what you mean.

  • So funny – we have 4 brown shavers and we call them 'the girls' too. They live and work in harmony and we just love them.

    They are good layers and give us lots of reasons to smile with their funny behaviour patterns.
