Welcome to the family new chickens! 💕🐔 I love them, They're so cute. The hen in front is a Silver pencilled hamburg, I love her pattern she looks like a mini Campine, and the lady in the back is a Gold Sebright, I've been wanting sebrights for years, it almost feels weird to finally see them in my yard. #sebright #sebrightbantam #backyardchickens #chicken #chickensofinstagram #petchickens #hamburgchicken  #petchickensofinstagram #bantam #bantamchicken #bantamchickens #birds #pets #animals #poultry

It's tough being a bird dog surrounded by chickens... Trigger is handling it though. Bantam chick orders only come in straight runs sooo... too many roosters. 😕 We kept a few of our favorites. #bantamchickens

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

This week's animal spotlight is extremely special to us. Star Thistle's longest running resident, Little Black Chicken, "LBC," or "Little Black". A once in a lifetime chicken, a Japanese bantam also know as a Chabo, a true bantam breed. LBC is an amazing animal. She is a mix of moxy, saavy, and reliability. She was raised in a flock of full sized layers, and most likely has never broken 1lb in weight. She quickly became a leader, and eventually tragedy struck and we lost an entire flock...twice over, LBC persevered. First to disappear last to reappear. She even enjoys beating up our full size rooster. LBC also lays the best eggs we have here, the eggs we personally eat for breakfast. They are absolutely tiny but clock in at over 35% yolk. Great for breakfast great for baking. She is also our most broody hen. She loves brooding in the same box with her best friend Big Black Chicken(sometimes we get real lazy on the names), together they hatched and raised Baby Black Chicken, and are one odd happy family. We plan on utilizing her for mothering chicks again this spring. Here's to you LBC, a true champion of the farm! #bantamchickens #chabo #freerange #chickens #starthistleranch at Applegate, Oregon

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

There are ten things about raising chickens you'll never read in books. Here's the first three.⁣ 🐔⁣ 1. When you start talking about your chickens as if they're children, people will think that you've straight up lost your mind. 😂⁣ 2. Chickens are more addicting than potato chips. Once you start, you won't be able to stop. More chickens will magically find their way into your coop and when your spouse asks you how they got there, you'll just shrug and look all innocent. 🤷‍♀️⁣ 3. Chickens are unstoppable destruction machines. Oh, you wanted a nicely groomed yard and pretty gardens? Nope. Oh, what's that, a styrofoam cooler? NOM. Oh wait, did you actually WANT those plants in those pots? Whoops. 🐔⁣ Want to read the rest?

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

Last year our two silkie hens went very broody. When hens go broody they will often sit on nothing, or anything, trying to make a rock hatch. They are fiercely loyal to their nest and will stay there for weeks or even months, even to the point of compromising their own health. After a month of our hens being broody, we decided to give them hatching eggs. A month later, our two silkie hens hatched out 20 chicks and co-parented them. We found 12 of them really great homes, and the remaining 8 are still living with their two “moms.” Whoever says chickens are dumb, has never seen a chicken care for their babies. They are incredible guys!! • • • What is your favorite thing about chickens? Mine is watching their parenting instincts kick in! • • #sunshinefarmny #chickensofig #chickenlove #silkie #silkiechicken #chicksofinstagram #chick #babychick #silkiechick #bantamchick #backyardpoultrymag #paintsilkie #chickenlove #chickensaresmart #animalintelligence #vegetarianhomestead #plantbasedhomestead #chickenlife #bantamchickens #bantamsilkie #modernhomestead #raisingchicks #hatchingchicks #broodyhens #broody #hobbyfarm #nyfarm #wny #upstateny

This photo of Joan Jett tailing Sunny was taken a few days ago. The lawn has brown and crunchy patches now. We’ve hit 37°C/ 98.6°F already, at least tomorrow is going to be cooler, only 30°C/ 86°F yay!! Getting back to JJ, she still gets up in Sunny’s face, always checking if he has food. 😬 He is still such a puppy and I wish she wouldn’t do that!!! I don’t trust him with the chooks, he wants to play with them and sees them as fluffy soccer balls!! #Aussiechickens #backyardchickens #backyardchooks #chickensofinstagram #happychooks #crazychickenlady #chickenpaparazzi #loveyourchooks #freerangechickens #herechookchook #mygarden #cottagegarden #australia #bantamchickens #poules #galline #höns #hühner #poultrypose #galinhas #dogsandchickens

Auch die Zwerg-Cochins kommen in meinem neuen Hühnerbuch, das im März erscheinen wird, nicht zu kurz. Sie sind unter den Rasseportraits vertreten. Hier eine schwarze und eine birkenfarbige Henne dieser gartentauglichen Rasse. 🌞🐓🐔🐥 🐥🐔🐥 #zwergcochin #pekinbantam #zwerghühner #hühner #bantamchicken #urzwerge #happyhuhn #strupphuhn #bantamchickens #happyhuhn #gallinas #hühnergarten #gartenhühner #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #poultryofinstagram #backyardpoultry #hühnerglück #eilig #blackchickens #noneedtorush #happyhühnergarten #birdsofafeather #featherball
