My husband is calling this The Crazy Duck Lady Starter Kit! 🤣🤣 But how can it be a Starter Kit when I already have 6 ducklings? Now I have 7 more! The first set are now 4 weeks old and HUGE! They are loving outside time during the day.

When things are chaotic, why not add a little more chaos? My DEAR SWEET husband adopted a small flock of flood victims - an angry Turkey included. I wanted to pet it, it wanted to attack me. THOSE WINGS HURT. I want to eat him, but I dont want to kill him, so I guess we are just going to have to learn to coexist and carry a shovel at all times just in case.The hens are already giving us some pretty eggs though. . . . . . . . . . #eggs #eggart #hens #chickens #roosters #floodof2019 #midwestliving #midwest #missouri #missouriliving #ourchaoticlife #chaos #chickenmom #crazychickenlady #farm #turkey #fresheggs

Check out this crazy getup that my hubby put together! The chicks are now 4 weeks old. I knew I wanted to connect a dog crate next to the box brooder but was unsure how. So hubby found an old round hamper in the garage, cut out the bottom and connected it to the box so that the chicks have a little playpen area. Yep, they have to cross through the ‘metaphorical tunnel’ to go play. This is a cool little covered pet playpen that I found on Amazon. The other side has the heat lamp where they cuddle up to rest at night. They’ll have their own coop very soon. Ingenious!! 👍👍😍🐔😍😍 #crazychickenlady #backyardpoultry #farmlife #hobbyfarm #etsyshopowner #etsyseller

Sourdough bread was good today and at last Mrs Doubtfire has laid an egg. It's a bit lumpy but at least it's got a shell on today. She seems to be a little brighter in herself so hopefully we are on the mend!!

Good morning ... oh happy day, it’s FLOWERS 🌷 for YOU Friday!! My way of sharing the joy of receiving flowers! Look at these GORGEOUS Iceland Poppies!!! So delicious, you might just want to eat them.. right? 😍 A perfect pick-me-up for this grey, chilly, raw “spring” day! So, I’ve gotta tell you peeps... this week my head has been chalk-full of self doubt. Ugh. I can’t seem to get out of my own way, and my mind is racing with all the “what are you crazy?” , “you can’t possibly make this work!”, “you’ll never find just the right property”, “girl, you’re just too freaking old to do this farmer thing!”, “this can’t possibly be done solo!”.... endless. self. doubt. Oh it’s LOUD negative self talk folks!! Do you ever do this??? 🤔 Let your head try to talk your heart out of going forward with a big decision??? Sheesh, if ever I needed parents, now would be the time 😓 I have to tell you.... I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t green with envy when I see women (ok so social media can be a total stab to the heart)being loved on, cheered on and supported by their parents, especially by their moms 💔It’s super hard being an orphan, especially when your mom just opted out (eeek, maybe that’s TMI for IG or FB😩) I could really use one of those good old fashioned mom-pep-talks right now, but instead I’ll have to find a way to change my narrative myself! I guess what I’ve learned over the years from flying solo is .... from what I can see, it’s wonderful, amazing in fact, to have an unconditional loving support system but when it comes down to it.... in order to make big changes or accomplish anything significant or important in this life, we all have to be able to silence the negative self talk and learn to be our own cheer leaders, right? That in order to move forward in life, our own inner narrative has to be one of support and encouragement, no matter...no matter how much outside cheering we get, or from what source, the bottom line is, whatever the matter at hand, we have to believe it in our own heart❤️ in order to put one foot in front of the other. Bottom line, it’s our own inner strength that is ultimately the catalyst for everything! (Continues in comments)

Picked these ladies up last night. After some inspection today, they are not in great condition. One is almost blind, 2 have mite infestations, nails are overgrown causing toe deformation, and they have raised scales on their feet. Give me a month or two and hopefully these 4 ladies will pull through to be A+ condition. They aren’t the worst I’ve seen, so I’m optimistic 👏🏼🥰🐓 Having chickens is not for the faint hearted, they require observation almost daily. Learning their habits and behaviours so you can recognize when they are off. I like to think that these ladies are in good loving hands!! #returnof #crazychickenlady #backyardchickens #farmlife #lifestyle #love

It's a little known day, but today is 'Take your chicken to nursery' day 🐔🐤 I have never been so popular in a playground. If I knew chickens were such people magnets, I would have got them as a teen 😜 (Disclaimer: I have no idea even what the date it is today, let alone if it is actually anything to do with chickens... 🤷) 📸@ewap123 - - - #investinkids #investinlearning #naturenurture #teachingcompassion #mamalife #teachthemyoung #motherhood #chickensofinstagram #crazychickenlady #pekinbantam #laurie #toddlerlife #spreadjoy #chickensareawesome #curiouskids #feedtheircuriosity #outdoorlife #soyouthinkyoucanfarm #getoutside #chickenlife

I just want to say how much I love the Instagram farm community. You guys are so helpful, wholesome and just so absolutely nice. Everywhere I turn people are giving out tips and tricks to help each other out. I've been in the small business world for a few years now, and I've never seen anything like this. We always knew we'd end up with the family farm, just never this early. We're figuring everything out as we go, and trying to learn in what spare time we have. I'm learning so much from everyone and the lengths people are going to to spread love and good fortune is amazing. This is truly an amazing community and I'm so grateful. . . . . . . . . . . . #homestead #homesteading #farmlife #farm #countrylife #farmhouse #country #countryliving #farming #homesteader #hobbyfarm #eggsofinstagram #eggs #chickens #farmfresheggs #fresheggs #crazychickenlady #backyardchickens #farmhouse #farmer #chickencoop #chickenlife #homesteadlife #backyardchickens #farms #farmer #homesteadlife #chickensofinstagram #countryside

Happy #fluffybuttfriday my friends. I’m so excited for the weekend. I have a new incubator arriving and half a dozen little eggs! Lisa @sweetpicklefarm posted a picture this week of the cutest little chicken. A silver spangled Hamburg. I instantly fell in love with the breed, so of course I just had to have some! What are your plans for the weekend? Does it involve hatching?! 🐣

Day 4 of Hooping! ... with King Henry this time. 🔊 RHCP remix ... and a dachshund who wants to join in! 💞 Today's baby step: I can slowly go around in a circle and take one gangly, un-co step forward. (Did anyone ever see Elaine, from the TV Show Seinfeld, do a dance? That's me ... only hooping!) 💞 Things I've noticed: ▪ I bend zee knees too much, like a Sumo wrestler. Caveat: I bend them because my hoop is slipping down; about to collapse to the ground; and I'm madly trying to keep it up on my waist!! ▪ The coq is steadier (but that could just be King Henry) ▪ I can only hoop if it spins clockwise around me. (What about other people? Are you ambidextrous hoopers or righties or lefties) ▪ My core and thigh muscles are slightly sore the next morning so I must be doing some sort of workout!! (I'm stuck in the 80's "No pain, no gain" mentality !) 💞 #happyhooping #beginninghooper #hoopingwithchickens at Canberra, Australian Capital Territory
