Chickens Stories from Our Nest

Spring Chickens

Spring is the time for nestling in the grass.
Tales of the Winter are told through their eyes.
Chickens are rainbows for blue and gray skies.


Exploring the yard is what they do best.


Little ones meet the dew drops of Spring.


As guardians keep watch,


New little ones are shown the way around the garden.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. ~Hal Borland

  • The more I read your blog the more I don't want to leave! You have a one stop info here. I will be back very soon!

  • Love the pictures….They are so sweet. I am going to try to let my hens have some chicks of their own this year.

  • I am so happy for you that you got chicks. It was so fun when me and my sister Ellie where aloud to let our chicks run around our house but we did not like it when they pooped all over. I am going to tell you my chickens names Marygold, Fuzz Ball, Lucy, Ethel, Ameila, Pixi, Ruby, Esther the nester,and Little Guy. well my sister is ready to play webkinz bye. – Taylor Brynn

  • Very nice pics of your hens. I like your blog very much and it is THE inspiration and information source for me as we are thinking of getting us some hens this spring too.

  • Thank you all for such sweet comments and sharing your stories. I love reading them so much! I am very much inspired by photography. Today I have shared some that are not my own. (see bottom credits) I hope you too find inspiration in them as well. Spring and its glory will be here soon.

    Have you got any new chicks?

  • Hi Daniel, I am still trying to figure that one out! Not yet, but oh so tempted to order just a few.

  • Jen

    These photos are beautiful and brought a smile to my face. Thanks for sharing them!

  • Lovely blog~I enjoyed the photos of your Silkies on the sidebar. This is my kind of blog:)

  • I have not gotten chickens yet but you sao much info, I think I am gonna read your blog for a while before I do. Thank you for such great posts!

  • Thank you Jen and Calico Hen. I appreciate your lovely comments. I enjoy reading them very much.

  • I have a question, on your last picture with the reddish brown hen and the two chicks, can you tell me what type of chicken that is. Me and my dad recently adopted a new hen and she looks similar to yours, we think she might be a mix. She has the same tail, she's much taller then our Buff Orphingtons, and has a much longer neck.

  • Hi Natasha, she is not mine, but I think she might be a mixed breed take a peek at the Buff Brahmas. Her feather patterning seems like she might have some in her.

  • I found out she is a New Hampshire Red, might get some more just like her. ^.^

  • Great blog, and lovely photos!
