What gorgeous speckled eggs! More times than not, speckled eggs seems to be the “people’s choice” at our egg shows. For good reason, of course! Thank you @fallentreeacres for sharing these beauties with us. ❤️ . . Posted @withrepost@fallentreeacres These eggs 😍 My how I love their dark and speckled shells. So grateful for my two #BlueCopperMarans. I am counting down the days until I start getting #eggs from the “babies”. They are now over 17 weeks old. I’ve been watching mannerisms and combs closely. I think I have an idea of who will be my first #layers!! My guess is a white egg ( #AustraWhite), a light #brownegg (one of my #SilverLacedWyandotte), and another egg like in this picture (fingers crossed) (one of my #GoldenCuckooMarans). I’m sharing this for #eggsandblooms with @wildfeatherfarm ((who is currently working on my #farm logo... eeeeeek!!!)) 😍 . . Do you have any Marans photos you’d like to be featured on our page? If so, be sure to tag us @themaransclub and use the hashtag #themaransclub in your post. We’d love to share your photos and our love for this wonderful breed. . . #themaransclub #marans #bluecoppermarans #whitemarans #blacksilvermarans #wheatenmarans #blackcoppermarans #cuckoomarans #darkeggs #rainboweggs #chickens #chocolateeggs #eggenvy #eggs #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #backyardpoultrymag #iamcountryside

The babes are all reintegrated and the wiley welsummer who had a thing for eye-pecking has... well, she still pecks eyes, just not as much. Also I got three more chicks because like, why not?

October versus February. This little Austra White, named Marshmallow by the kiddos, is one of the most curious little birds we’ve had. This was our third batch of chickens ever, and my first time buying chicks in the fall. They were shipped from @mypetchickenofficial on Sept 24th. A bit of an impulse purchase after a string of predator attacks during the late summer that cut our old flock in half. ☹️ I was a little worried about integrating the new birds during the winter when they’d be cooped up a lot, but we got lucky and the first half of the winter was pretty dry. After an introductory period separated by chicken wire in the coop, they were still able to work out the pecking order while free-ranging. . . . #freerangechickens #chickensofinstagram #backyardchickens #austrawhite #mypetchickenofficial #mypetchicken

I'm pretty proud of my little makeshift brooder setup. I really hate heat lamps because of the fire hazard (and 24 hour light messing with circadian rhythms) but I devised a pretty fool-proof (I think) way to at least prevent it from ever falling into the bedding with this sideways metal basket. Ideally I'd have a sweeter heater or heat plate but they're kind of impractical and expensive for my needs. I am picking up a ceramic heat emitter later to fix the circadian rhythms issue next. 👍 Baby chick health & safety, ftw!💕🐣🐤🐥🐣💕

If it's too early to plant seeds, why not get chicks??! Seems like sound logic to me. Totally. 😍😍😍

Very excited one of my new pullets has started laying. Here’s her egg side by side with a mature Welsummer’s (and Golden Buff in 2nd photo) Looks like I opened up the extra nesting boxes just in time. Pretty sure it’s the Austra White I threw in at the last minute. Her comb and wattles are much more red than her other pals and I’ve seen her hanging around the coop a bit more. The egg looks like a lighter version of an Australorp’s, which I suppose you’d expect since she is an Australorp and White Leghorn cross. #austrawhite #welsummer #goldenbuff #backyardchickens #eggcolors #pulleteggs

My November batch of girls had a day out in the large run last week. I am currently keeping them in a smaller coop by themselves until they are a bit larger and can integrate with my flock and also tolerate the constant “rooster courting”. 🐓🙄 Aren’t they pretty little girls? #mypetchickenofficial #lavenderorpington #bluesplashmaran #blueblackameraucana #creamlegbar #easteregger #austrawhite #australorp #doublesfarm #farmlife #chickens #hens #chickenkeeping #hobbyfarm #crazychickenlady #fluffybutts at Double S Farm

#tmw they smart off for the last time 😏My buff Brahma has started to think she’s large and in charge, charging and puffing her chest at the others. Pixelle, my austra-white, is one of the smaller girls and has taken her fair share of the Brahms’s sass. Clearly, she’s had enough! #thatsenough #nottoday #chickfight #roundonefight #shesapistol #enoughisenough #isaidgoodday #shemaybelittlebutsheisfierce #hellhathnofury #kungpowchicken #chickenjokes #snapped #brahma #girlfights #largeandincharge #thelaststraw #mygirls #chooks #dontstandsoclosetome #chicks #austrawhite #rufflesomefeathers #dontdishitifyoucanttakeit #chickensofinstagram #actionshot #instachickens #henstagram #featheredfriends

These girls are growing so fast and feathering out so beautifully. It’s become a challenge to see how long we can go before they knock their water over. Which of course makes it quite stinky in here. So we’ve decided this weekend we will close up the coop and prepare it to be a giant brooder so these girls can have more room to be the wild and crazy birds they are. 🤪🐓 • • • • #brooder #flock #chooks #mixedflock #marans #blackcoppermarans #splashmarans #goldencuckoomarans #lavenderorpington #orpington #wyandotte #silverlacedwyandotte #goldlacedwyandotte #blueameraucana #ameraucana #easteregger #oliveegger #bufforpington #austrawhite #blueandalusian #welsummer #homesteading #mychickencoop #backyardchickens #chickens

Confessions Part II: compromise. After losing Piper I was a mess. We had just lost John’s Dad two weeks prior, then my little ray of sunshine. Christmas was quickly approaching, as well as John’s and my ten year anniversary, and I just wasn’t feeling any of it. One night while talking, I confessed wanting to get chicks (what better distraction than new babies?!). What crazy person wants to get chicks in the middle of winter? This crazy! Did John? No! Because he actually has some sense. What did we do? We compromised and got chicks 😂🤣 Happy Anniversary/Christmas to me!!!! Without further ado, let me introduce our new babies!! #getit #usherbelike #thesearemyconfessions #chickenmath #easteregger #austrawhite #buffbrahma #bufforpington #chickens #chicksofinstagram #lavenderorpington #chickpics #creamlegbar #newbabies #bluesplashmarans #anniversary #compromise #crazychickenlady #chicks #meyerhatchery #happywifehappylife #mygirls #chickensofinstagram #noobs #newadventures #crazychickenlady #gottacollectemall #withoutfurtherado

So I went a little #crazychickenlady today and did a #chick #photoshoot 🤣 Really I like to see them grow, and we all know it happens fast! It’s nice to see how they started. The only ones I’m not so sure of are the Blue Andalusians. I’ve had them before and don’t recall them being so different looking... or like these two at all really. I guess we will find out! I love them all so much. I’m so excited to see them fully feathered... and laying!!! 🐥🥚 See my story for their names 😍 • • • #easteregger #oliveegger #blueameraucana #ameraucana #lavenderorpington #orpington #bufforpington #blackcoppermarans #marans #goldencuckoomarans #cuckoomarans #austrawhite #silverlacedwyandotte #goldlacedwyandotte #wyandotte #welsummer #bluesplashmarans #splashmarans #mixedflock #backyardchickens #iamcountryside #meyerhatchery @meyer_hatchery

It’s not that I don’t appreciate our beautiful bounty (we’ve been eating and gifting eggs left and right!)...I’m just anxious for the blues and the whites and the chocolates to make my counter even prettier! #rainbow #rainboweggs #kitchencounterart #letsgogirls #jerry #jerrygarcia #blueameraucana #dooda #austrawhite #blackbetty #blackcoppermarans #thankyou #goldie #goldiehawn #bufforpington #summer #delawarechicken #meatball #lakeshoreegger #chip #cuckoomarans #grizzle #buffbrahma #johnny #dominquechicken #barabara #barbarastreisand #oliveegger
