This vine has self seeded under the clothesline. I’m thinking it’s a pumpkin 🤔. If anyone knows, I’d love to hear from you. I’m going to let it grow up the #hillshoist and see what happens. Hubby will be impressed, more places for spiders to hide and get in his clothes! 😂 #aussiechickens #backyardchickens #backyardchooks #chickensofinstagram #happychooks #crazychickenlady #chickenpaparazzi #loveyourchooks #freerangechickens #herechookchook #mygarden #cottagegarden #australia #bantamchickens #poules #galline #höns #hühner #poultrypose #galinhas

I think this is a hoverfly! I initially thought it was a wasp until some IGers set me straight!! It was really tiny, coming in to land on the deep pink Gaura plant. SWIPE to see it up close. #wasp #pinkgaura #aussiechickens #backyardchickens #backyardchooks #chickensofinstagram #happychooks #crazychickenlady #chickenpaparazzi #loveyourchooks #freerangechickens #herechookchook #mygarden #cottagegarden #australia #bantamchickens #poules #galline #höns #hühner #poultrypose #galinhas

#askingforafriend 😉 See previous post for the scoop on why I've gone to the birds!! #baldarchyprize . (S.S.Potato is our newest family member. He fell from a tree a few months ago and has slowly been getting better. See my Chook insta page @poultrytales if you want to see more pics of little Potato) . Note: the nosy parker of a chicken lurking behind me is Ms Hyacinth Clucket. aka: the resident gossip monger. She's probably going to dob on me to HRH.

One of the Rockerels saying g’day 💓 These little dudes have such big personalities, I really love them! They don’t often come all the way up to me since I didn’t have a chance to handle them much in the last months of my pregnancy. When they do, it’s just to take a close look at what I’m doing and then scamper off again to the rest of the gang. Either way, I love hanging out with them! #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #plymouthrock #barredrock #plymouthrockrooster #rockerel #cockerel #stripychook #babychicken #mccarthyfarms

One of the Plymouth Rock hens has finally decided to come back to work after maternity leave! Poor Bellatrix has been holding up the whole team by continuing to lay, while the other girls have been taking a break and raising young Neville. Nice to start getting my colours back - after a while, Blue eggs get a little boring when they’re the only ones you see 🤣 #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #araucana #araucanaegg #blueegg #plymouthrock #barredrock

We sure have been covering a lot of ground over the past few weeks, meeting passionate chicken lovers all over Australia. Last week we dropped in for a coffee, meet and greet with the chooks, a chat and of course a quick photo shoot with the legendary bearded one. Who could it be? Watch @gardeningaustralia this Friday night to see him sans beard. . . . . @costasworld #aussiechickens #aussiechooks #backyardchooks #backyardchickens #checkyourchook #chickensaspets #chickenlove #chickensofig #chooks #ChookHealth #chickens #chickenjoy #chickensofinstagram #chickenwhisperer #fowl #cluckcluck #chickenlife #chookstagram #chooksofinstagram #chickenpetlove #chickenpaparazzi #growyourownfood #freerangechickens #happyhens #hensofinstagram #petchicken #instachicken #loveyourchooks #urbanchickens #gardeningaustraliamag at Sydney, Australia

Just two girls bitchin to each other about how they’ll never find a decent bloke around here 🙄 Don’t worry, ladies. I’ll find you a nice cockerel eventually. Until then...carry on complaining 🤷🏼‍♀️ #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #belgianduccle #belgianbantams #millefleurbelgianduccle #spottychickens #speckledhens #millefleur #bantamchooks #bantamchickens #littlehens #littlechooks #tinychooks #fluffyfeet #millicentbulstrode #mafaldahopkirk

Little Lucky sure has grown into a handsome young dude 💓 So alert and adventurous, leading his gang on all sorts of merry wanders around the yard. He’s the little ringleader of the group for sure. 💓 #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #plymouthrock #barredrock #stripychicken #stripychook #babychickens #cockerel #babyrooster #heritagechickens #mccarthyfarms #luckychicken #luckychook

Ms Zsa Zsa GaBar has decided to become broody and make her nest rather inconveniently under a hard-to-get-at shrub. So, to get to her , I need to fight the bracken ... and, then, once I get to her I need to fend off her vicious, defensive, 'pi$$ awf and let me be' pecking. 🤬 #broodyhen

This is Griphook, one of the Araucana chicks. I named her (I’m decided to call her a “her” from now on in hope it works 😂) Griphook because when she was going through that fun teenager stage, she looked a heck of a lot like a goblin 🙈 Thankfully she grew out of it pretty darn quick 😂💓 #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #araucana #bluearaucana #griphook #griphookthegoblin #blueeggs #babychickens

Little Ziggy hanging out with the Araucana chicks. I love watching the Lucky gang interact with each other. I cannot for the life of me distinguish any particular friendships throughout the seven of them. They are always mingling in different pairs or trios -none of them seem to have any preferred buddies within the group. It’s great to see such a close knit team! 💓🐥🐥 #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #sussexchickens #lightsussex #araucana #bluearaucana #heritagechickens #blueeggs #babychickens #mccarthyfarms #luckychickens #theluckygang

Millicent and Mafalda 💓 Starting to get very red in the face and making some funny noises - so much that my husband was questioning that they are actually definitely both girls 😅Luckily it’s just their way of showing they’re starting to mature and getting close to beginning to lay, which I am SO excited for!! 💓 Can’t wait to have me some teeny tiny D’uccle eggs again 💓🥚🥚 #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #belgianduccle #millefleurbelgianduccle #bantamchickens #tinychickens #littlechooks #speckledhens #belgianbantams

Moulting is hitting everyone hard at the moment, but the new feathers are already starting to come back in thanks to the nutritious hemp seed meal everyone is getting. You can see the darker, new feathers growing back over Petunia’s back and rump, and if you look reeeeally closely you can see some new pin feathers on her neck and chest too. These girls will be back to their beautiful glossy selves in no time! #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #plymouthrock #barredrock #stripychicken #heritagechickens #moultingtime #summerbirds #newfeathers #hempseed #doonanfeedco #petuniadursley

Little Fawkes 💓🐥 Can’t decide if I want this dude to be a pullet or a cockerel! It would be great to have another Araucana hen, but also if it’s a cockerel it’ll be JUST like his daddy Lavender, who I loved sooo much and miss more every day. Partly why I named this chick Fawkes - the Phoenix from Harry Potter. Kind of like Lavender rising from the ashes 🔥💓You’d think I could go by that curly tail, but I’m not being tricked by that again 😂 I once gave away one of Lavender’s siblings who from 4 weeks old up until 18 weeks old had a curly tail JUST like that. Was deadset convinced it was a cockerel. Well, a couple of weeks later “his” new owner let me know that “he” had laid them a beautiful blue egg. No no Fawkes, you’re not pulling a 5-Toes McGee on me! I will just wait impatiently...the joys of sexing Araucanas! #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #araucana #bluearaucana #babychicken #blueeggs #fawkesthephoenix

Would you look at how grown up young Neville is now! He (fingers crossed actually a SHE), is thriving under the care of his three wonderful mamas, watchful dad and crazy Aunty Bella. He is incredibly difficult to take a photo of as he has been hen raised and not handled at all, and is always either running away from me or getting behind/under/in between his mums so I can’t catch a snap 😂💓 #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #easteregger #plymouthrock #stripychicken #araucana #blueeggs #colourfuleggs #mccarthyfarms #nevillelongbottom #babychickens

My beautiful homegrown Speckled girl Raven 💓 I just love this little pullet. She’s still having her “Mum seriously don’t touch me” stage, but with how sweet her mama was and how cuddly Raven was as a chick, I’m confident she’ll come around soon😉😂💓 #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #speckledsussex #sussexchicken #heritagechickens #ravenclaw #mccarthyfarms #spottychook #speckledhen

Finally had some time this afternoon to let everyone out and grab some new photos 💓 They sure were glad to get out and stretch their legs!! Reggie and his best girl Bellatrix are never far from one another 💓 #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #plymouthrock #barredrock #reggierooster #stripychicken #araucana #blueeggs #bestbuddies #chickencouple

Breakfast for the growers this morning! I feel like I haven’t seen my chooks in weeks (though it’s really only been a few days)! I have been inside resting and dealing with our human chicky and my wonderful mum has been looking after my feathered kids for me. It sure felt good to get down and spend some time with them today!! 💓 They are growing SO fast - they will be 10 weeks old this week! Except for Raven who is 13 weeks old. I’ll be sad when it comes time to part with them! #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #plymouthrock #barredrock #stripychook #babychickens #pullet #cockerel #speckledsussex #sussecchicken #heritagechickens

Another returnee rooster! How handsome is this fellow! He was out of some eggs that I sold. I have already had one roo returned by the same family, and they have yet another one coming back too! This boy is an Easter Egger, by my Speckled Sussex boy Ollie. I miss him a lot, and it’s been lovely (though sad!) to see some of his beautiful babies. This handsome dude’s name is Raven (my Speckled Sussex pullet Raven is NOT impressed that she has a half brother with the same name as her 🤣) Usually I process the cockerels within a day or two of them coming back here, but this guy saved himself some days by arriving right before I had my baby - so he’s had a very graceful little holiday just chilling out 😅 Still very much healing from the whole event so Raven will be around for a little while longer. Maybe I should name him Lucky the Second 😂 #thepotterchooks #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #instachook #aussiechook #aussiechickens #freeranging #happychickens #queenslandchickens #sunshinecoastchickens #sunnycoastchooks #easteregger #cockerel #rooster #mccarthyfarms #speckledsussex #araucana
