The biggest egg has a double yoke and the smallest egg was a Welsummer's first out. We are finally back into full production of eggs. All the crazy weather really confuses my girls. Thankfully they have finished molting and look gorgeous! . . . #farmlife #chickenfarm #iamcountryside #backyardpoultrymag #backyardpoultry #raisingchickens #poultryofinstagram #chickensofig #backyardchickens #igchickens breakfast #sundaybrunch #weekendvibes #eggenvy #doubleyoke #sizematters at Ringel Ranch

SURPRISE!! We got new baby chicks! 🐣πŸ₯ Well, by now you all know it's my MO to be totally irrational and buy animals at seemingly the worst times! 🀷 So when we we're at @ruralkingsupply and I saw that they had Plymouth Blue Rocks with the cutest blue/purple/grey fuzz I, naturally, couldn't help myself! And since you have to buy at least 6, of course I had to also get some light brahmas and buff orpingtons which were on my list to add this spring. πŸ™ˆ And then when Elizabeth pointed at one of the silver laced wyandottes and asked if she could get one to be "her chicken" I could hardly tell her no when I'd just gotten myself seven chicks....soooooo we came home with eight new babies! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Aren't they the cutest?!? β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #chickens #chickensofinstagram #crazychickenlady #raisingchickens #backyardchickens #igchickens #chickenlady #ilovechickens #chickenlove #chickenlife #chickensmakemehappy #chicken_lovers_world #chickensofig #hensofig #country_features #poultry #farmphotography #cooptotable #egglayers #gritmagazine #backyardpoultrymag #mychickencoop #backyardflock #babychicks #bufforpington #lightbrahma #plymouthbluerock #silverlacedwyandotte #theyarejustwee with @theredshedhomestead andΒ  @quirkyfarming

This egg may be tiny, but our Big Red is finally a hen πŸ‘‘. Anyone else love the matte look versus shiny? 😍

So, this is Charlie. I ended up with one rooster in my spring shipment! I did seperate him from my ladies and give him his own bachelor pad,much to his dismay! At first I was seriously going to give him to a good home, but he is sooo friendly. He slammed right into my heart! He follows me EVERYWHERE! Whenever he sees me come out of the house or drive up the driveway, he comes a running! It is hilarious! My visitors all think he acts like a dog and not a chicken! I love Charlie ❀ #mypetchicken #thepinehillcottage #igchickens #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #chicken #rooster #chickenlove #chickens #bufforpington #lifeinthecountry #countrylife #countryliving #myhappiness #ilovechickens #poultryofinstagram #poultry #chickenkeeping #backyardpoultry #countrylife

If you saw our last post, I was building this white and grey brooder/coop. β€œChicken towers” as my friends like to call it. πŸ˜‚ Its 90% finished. The stairs (added last week) lead up to a small reinforced deck so the kids can get eggs bright and early. Swipe left to see! πŸ“πŸ₯š thank you! πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦

Amazing transformation of our rescue hens in just 2 months! Swipe to see 'now'. This is Henny! (you can tell by the mark on her beak) We got them at the beginning of December and they were in such a bad state. Look at her flat comb and featherless behind. Poor thing. She also didn't know how to hold herself or how to scratch for food but she was always strong spirited and great fun. I myself can't believe this is the same hen though! #happyfebruary #πŸ” #igchickens #hensofinstagram #hens #chickens #chickensofinstagram #backyardchickens #rescue #backyardhens #rescuehens #raisingchickens #happyhens #exbatts #exbatteryhens #chickensaspets #urbanchickens #mypetchicken #petchickens #exbatterychickens #bhwt #chickenmom #friendsnotfood

When your chicken matches your socks! πŸ˜‚πŸ”πŸŒΈπŸ§¦ . πŸ“Έ @5rfarmoregon . My little Mille Fleur D’uccles have quickly become some of my new favorites, and really is there anything better than lap time with the feather family? These ladies are so beautiful and they have the sweetest personalities! I can’t say both of those things about the roo πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ˆ but I love him anyway even though he’s a bit of a rascal.

I was nervous when I started to rip apart this store bought chicken coop. I probably wouldn’t have had the guts to if it wasn’t gifted to me by a friend. This build was really weird, I had to step back several times to figure out how to make everything work. In the end I’m really happy with the way it came out !! Swipe right to see the progress. Let me know what you think please! Go build something! #chickencoop #brooder #babychicks #chickentowers
