Not gonna lie...the amount of homework we have been doing this week has inspired my latest T-Shirt. This farm girl is ready for the weekend!! Do you think kids have too much homework today? How are they gonna do their farm chores?
It can be difficult finding time to give your chickens all the attention they need.
We recommend blocking out time in your day to set a routine for tending to your chickens, giving you time to complete your chicken keeping jobs such as nest cleaning, filling feeders, and freshening the bedding.
• Chickens are great at controlling ticks in your yard
• You don’t need a fenced in yard to free range your chicks
• Chickens produce one egg a day per chicken
• Chickens are a great source of entertainment
• Most towns allow chickens, check your local laws for property size to chicken ratio
• Roosters are usually not allowed in small neighborhoods at East Hampton, New York
NEW CHOOKS ARRIVE
Say hello to our new cheeky arrivals kindly supplied by the family @mrs.dempsey from North Brisbane. These clucky girls gave us quite a chase to catch them and place them into the box for the trip to their new home. My husband & I loaded Chook coop 2 onto the trailer and we were off.
Hubby gave the coop a good clean and sprayed for geckos (to protect our bees) and I scrubbed it down with apple cider vinger.
Cleaned we assembled the coop on the side of the house. Put sawdust down with fresh hay.
Our Australian Silky X sniffed away at the box intently. Until we were ready to release them.
Hubby again fenced off my vegetable garden and then we were ready to introduce mischievous white hen 🐔 + gentle brown hen 🐔 to their new home.
As you can see in one of the picturez, they love the little Araucana's chook coop. They even attempted to bully the poor little ones 🐥🐥 out of their home ☹. But, we fixed that issue by making the gap too small for the big new arrivals to enter and popped the Araucana chicks food + water safely inside.
Now, we just have to allow the chooks time to get to know each other..... #chickencoop#chicken#Chooks#backyardfarming#vegetablegarden#gardening#hens#Chickenfarm#brisbane#sugarcanemulch#hay#eggs#organicchickens#organicliving

Ever seen the difference between a store bought egg and a “real” fresh egg ( chickens that are fed right, no hormonal stuff and that are free to wonder)
The one on the left is from my parents chickens and the one on the right is your normal store bought egg. Look at that yolk!!!! And the taste.... oh it’s a world of difference. Makes you wonder 🤔 #healthyfood#egg#makerightchoices#chickencoop
