Sometimes I find myself outside next to the coop or watching the girls free-range.  Often, I lose track of time, sitting there, just watching.  Frankly, watching chickens is like watching a good t.v. show and I find it not only incredibly therapeutic but relaxing! Chicken t.v. is always different.  You never know what will happen…

Well, sometimes the best laid plans can change. After I finished posting yesterday, my friend with the farm called and asked when I was going to bring my chickens over!  Her ears must have been ringing!  She also asked about Chocolate and if I was ready to bring him too.   Past Winter, reminding Chocolate…

Yesterday around 4 pm, Dolly desperately wanted to go outside into the bigger run.  I really could not blame her, as I too would be tired of living  in a brooder with 8 little chicks.  She needed sometime to herself.  I obliged. Out in the run, she was having a fantastic time.  She took a dust…

Believe it or not, Meesha and Autumn are still broody.  Many a day now, I go into the nesting boxes and find them sitting together.  I am not sure if they will ever snap out of it!  I guess there is nothing like having a good friend to get you through these times.  I am…

This morning Dolly spent a really long time taking a dust bath!  She could not seem to get the hole deep enough and could not seem to scratch enough dirt up into the air.  Finally, she was exhausted and just lay there, contourted into the strangest of positions; panting.  For a moment, I thought that…

Meesha and Autumn are broody.  They have both been broody for about 2 weeks now.  This week, they have earned themselves the nickname, The Evil Broody Twins.  As they perch upon empty invisible eggs, their wrath is apparent when you even whisper their names. They spend most of their day in the boxes, as expected. …

Nice and Clean Today after yesterday’s snow, I could not wait to get out and do a little cleaning.  I originally planned to just clean the interior of the coop. However, as I began, I decided to clean the whole entire thing!  I let the original flock out to free-range.  I locked Meesha and Autumn…

Well, the girls must know Spring is in the air.  Except for Dolly with her new brood of seven chicks, all of my Silkie Bantams are experiencing degrees of broodiness.  Yesterday, Meesha and Autumn monopolized two of the nesting boxes.  Today, Feathers joined them occupying all three.  Tilly has taken on the role of nesting box…

Do you mean I’m cute? Yesterday, was such a taste of Spring!  It actually reached 55 degrees F.  All day, I anxiously glanced outside, just crazy to get into the run and clean out the beautiful compost the flock has been making all Winter long.  Finally, around 2pm, I was able to escape into the…

 Clockwise from top left: Autumn, Feathers, Meesha, Feathers  The northeast was slammed again with more snow.  The Cape got rain and let me say, lots of it.  The ground was already frozen with a combination of old snow and ice.  This did not allow the freezing rain to go many places.  In some…
