Hatch update! We have six chicks and one more pipped egg out of seven eggs in lockdown! One of the chicks hatched with a prolapsed navel, which is hit or miss on healing. We're crossing our fingers for that little one and have kept in the incubator with the remaining egg. Fingers crossed! #hatchingeggs #hatchday #ayamcemani #backyardchooks #chickensofinstagram

I remember thinking three chickens sounded like a lot. Then I went up to six which seemed like more chickens than I could even imagine. Now I see them together and think, “Hrm. Hardly seems like any chickens at all!” Maybe next spring. 🐣

I’ve taken this little chick away from Bruce now and will hand raise her myself. She’s eating and drinking on her own and generally kicking arse at being an extremely tiny chicken 🐣 Paloma is intrigued by her new sibling and possibly even a bit scared of her 😂 I got another Belgian D’Uccle pullet yesterday as a friend for Paloma,but Paloma doesn’t really want to be friends with her. She just wants to hang out with me and the dogs 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ . . . . . . . . . . . . #thebecktribe #millbrenkidlets #mountainbirdcottage #adoptdontshop #chickensofinstagram #countrystyle #backyardchooks #bantamchicken #backyardpoultrymag #chick #backyardchickens #happychickens #chickens #chooks #heritagechickens #babychick #chickensofinstagram #theartofslowliving #belgianduccles #belgianducclehen #belgianducclechicken #thatsdarling #slowliving #begianduccle #belgianchickens #chickensaspets #petchickens #babychicks #vscolife

@laurencemachiels vroeg me 5 feiten over mezelf te vertellen... 👧🏼 Ik ben nr 5 van een bende van 6 zeer verschillende meiden (we verloren ons zusje toen ze 19j was). Onze familie is dus groot! Zeer groot omdat beide ouders uit een nog groter gezin komen! 👩🏼‍🎓 Studeren was nooit mijn ding. Mijn zus bond mij vast aan mijn bureaustoel omdat ik anders buiten ging spelen, ik las boeken in plaats van te studeren, ik oefende gewoon de toetsen van mijn zus die een jaar hoger zat,... en toen ik voor mijn eerste jaar tuinarchitectuur slaagde was de reactie van mijn vader: ewel dat had ik nu echt niet van verwacht! 🙄 Tuurlijk deed ik daarna nog minder 😂 🤷🏼‍♀️ Als ik iets wil bereiken ga ik er 300% voor. Mijn motto: half werk ik geen werk. En dat is vervelend als je een pietje precies bent. 🌱 Mijn eerste moestuintje heeft mijn papa gemaakt. Het was een wijnkistje omgebouwd tot een mini serre. In dat wijnkistje heb ik vooral radijsjes gezaaid en ze waren totaal niet lekker. De moestuin is opgeborgen geweest, maar toen we ons tweede huis huurden hadden we veel plaats voor een moestuin, maar ik werd zwanger, niet geïmmuniseerd tegen toxoplasmose en ik moest plat liggen gedurende weken en was het vooral Bruno zijn taak. 2 prematuurtjes eisten al mijn energie en tijd, een 3e baby 23md nadien ook. Pas 8j geleden, na een nieuwe verhuis,heb ik er echt werk van kunnen maken. 2,5j geleden zijn we were verhuisd en nu wil ik eerst de rest van de tuin aanpakken om dan onze moestuin op te bouwen. 🐓 Als kind hebben we altijd kippen gehad. In die tijd vond ik er niets speciaals aan. Totdat ik Bruno zijn grootmoeder met haar kipjes zag! Die hadden een pruikje en ze pakte die gewoon op om ze te knuffelen!!! En toen we jaren later op internet ontdekten dat er kippen met groene eieren waren, is het echt begonnen! Gelukkig hebben we het perfecte huis met de perfecte tuin gevonden voor onze beestenboel. Ah ja, de kinderen willen ook nog een 🐄, een 🐖, een 🦃 en een 🦒 in de tuin! Graag zou ik iets meer over @mondanifarm @la_ferme_sauvage en @de_meisjes_van_de_moestuin willen weten! Surprise me! at Maleizen, Brabant, Belgium

The chickens love exploring the yard, especially this area which is VERY close to where the compost and trash is stored. In other words, lots of bugs. 🐛 🕷 🐜 It’s basically an all-you-can-eat buffet for chickens!

Sometimes I like to dream that my flock thinks of me as the true head hen, the lady in charge, the big boss. But really, I know that they just think of me as "Mrs. Treat Pockets" and are only friends with me because I constantly bribe them with my hands full of seeds. OH well, I'll take it. 🐔⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ #backyardchickenproject #instachicken #happychickens #crazychickenlady #poultry #poultryofinstagram #chickensofinstagram #chickensofig #keepingchickens #chickinstagram #chickenlife #hens #instachicken #petchickens #happychooks #farmlife #henstagram #chillingwithchickens #lovechickens #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #farmlife #homestead #chickencoop #chickenmom #backyardchooks #chickenenvy

The camera doesn’t lie. Right? Well, you would think with the green grass that the garden is lush and doing ok. It’s not. I’m keeping parts of it going by watering as I have my daughter’s wedding here in May. I’m so very disappointed that the rain predicted for the next four days is no more. Maybe something next Wednesday but only a slight chance. I have invested so much time, money and love into my garden, it’s really depressing. I feel so guilty for complaining as people on the land have it so much worse, and other Aussies have just been through floods and fire recently. I HAVE to be optimistic and hope good rain will come eventually 🤷🏻‍♀️ #fluffybuttfriday #aussiechickens #backyardchickens #backyardchooks #chickensofinstagram #happychooks #crazychickenlady #chickenpaparazzi #loveyourchooks #freerangechickens #herechookchook #mygarden #cottagegarden #australia #bantamchickens #poules #galline #höns #hühner #poultrypose #galinhas

Anyone else’s chickens monopolize the flower beds? “What do you mean, flower bed? This is our dust bath, thanks!” #petchickens #backyardchooks

Yay! There are at least 2 chooks laying eggs! One is my 'commercial hybrid' hen that I adopted. She produces the biggest eggs continuously all year round. But... one of my bantams (or both) started up again as well. You can see the difference between the two egg sizes and the colours of the eggshells. Funnily enough the biggest yolks came from the smaller eggs! #backyardchooks #backyardchickens #wyandotte #wyandottebantam #urbanhomesteading #urbanhomestead

Pretty little Gypsy. When I first saw silkies, I became completely obsessed with them and always thought they were my favourite breed. But then I came across pekins (or as my lovely American friends say, cochins) Now I’m totally obsessed with them too. They have such fun, inquisitive personalities. What’s your favourite breed?

Black cockatoos in my Mum’s street. They come every year to this tree. I don’t know what type of tree or what type of black cockatoo they are! (Red tailed? one actually looks orange/ yellow under the tail, in the video) Please chime in if you know!! #blackcockatoo #aussiechickens #backyardchickens #backyardchooks #chickensofinstagram #happychooks #crazychickenlady #chickenpaparazzi #loveyourchooks #freerangechickens #herechookchook #mygarden #cottagegarden #australia #bantamchickens #poules #galline #höns #hühner #poultrypose #galinhas #redtailedblackcockatoo

Can #WoefulWednesday be a thing? Peggy has the saddest expression on her face all the time since she started molting. I just want to give her a hug and some Grubblies and tell her it gets better. ☹️❤️

Little Lily... I'm pretty sure if you crossed a Chihuahua with a chicken this is what you would get. So much sass and personality in such a tiny thing 😄 Everyone needs a crazy bantam running around the place, so if you don't have one, get one!

It's hatch day yall! . Technically it started last night, and we just had our 4th hatch! . But I'm running on little to no sleep because those little peepers are so damn adorable! . Be prepared for massive amounts of chick spam. I'm not responsible for the chicks that you end up buying from all this cuteness 😉 . . #backyardchickens #backyardchooks #chickenmama #chickensofig #chickensofinstagram #chickens #hatchday #chickdays #chicks #petchickens #crazychickenlady #countrylife #country #homestead #homesteader #homesteadmisfits #hatchday #chicken #poultry #backyardpoultry #fresheggs #eggs #farmfresh #mixedflock

Today I had to say farewell to Anouk 😔 Her health went downhill yesterday and I brought her to the vet today,but it was too late to do anything for her so our vet euthanised her for me. Anouk recovered from the Cocci and was traveling along well with her sister,Paloma (Left in photo). But there was possibly too much damage done to her intestines from the parasites and she became anaemic along with other symptoms. She was my last Wheaten French Maran also. I seem to be cursed when it comes to that breed 😔 Paloma is going to miss her sister terribly.Even if Anouk was at the other end of the verandah,Paloma would cry for her. I have Paloma inside the house with me now and I’ll just let her hang with me because I have no other chickens now that are around the same age/size. Rest In Paradise little Anouk. We love you 🧡✨ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #thebecktribe #millbrenkidlets #mountainbirdcottage #adoptdontshop #chickensofinstagram #countrystyle #backyardchooks #bantamchicken #backyardpoultrymag #chick #backyardchickens #happychickens #chickens #chooks #frenchwheatenmarans #chickenhealth #chickensofinstagram #theartofslowliving #frenchmarans #belgianducclehen #belgianducclechicken #thatsdarling #poultryhealth #begianduccle #belgianchickens #chickensaspets #petchickens #euthanasia #vscolife

Siesta time yesterday. Look at Winnie or Dora, all snuggled up to Bertha, in 37°C heat! I don’t get it, at rest time they are all together, no fighting. At bedtime, there are No Friends! Even Winnie and Dora peck each other🤷🏻‍♀️ #chickenbehaviour #aussiechickens #backyardchickens #backyardchooks #chickensofinstagram #happychooks #crazychickenlady #chickenpaparazzi #loveyourchooks #freerangechickens #herechookchook #mygarden #cottagegarden #australia #bantamchickens #poules #galline #höns #hühner #poultrypose #galinhas

I have three chickens with giant beards and somehow Dolly is the only one who gets hers wet and dirty ALL THE TIME. Can’t figure it out. Are all salmon faverolles dirty birds?
