Welcome to our newest addition, Sully! She was intended to be a companion animal to a world champion show horse, but he ended up being terrified of the friendliest chicken there ever was! We’re so excited to have her & give her a life of luxury instead! . . #briceandersonfarm #backyardfarm #backyardfarmers #backyardfarming #farmsofinstagram #farm #farms #chicken #chickensofinstagram #backyardchicken #backyardchickensofinstagram #backyardchickenmag #ducks #ducksofinstagram #ducksofig #farmfresh #farmfresheggs #backyardhomestead #backyardhens #eastereggers #chickenkeeping #ilovemychickens #chickencoop #poultryofinstagram #organic #minifarm #farmtoplate #farmtotable #backyardbarn #backyardbarnyard

One of my friends recently asked me why I add both garlic and apple cider vinegar to my chickens’ water. Here are the reasons why: *Immune boosting *Aids in mineral absorption, including calcium *It is antimicrobial *It is antifungal *Prevents and treats parasites *Plus much, much more! I love my chickens (even the freeloaders) and I work hard to take care of them to the best of my ability. They give me hours of entertainment and many eggs. It’s the least I can do❤️ #smallfarmlife #clementsport #ilovemychickens

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!

Happy fluffy butt Friday from the youngest fuzziest members of our urban homestead! Are you sick of me bombarding you with baby chicks in my stories? Sorry if it’s a lot of fuzzy cute babies! . #sorrynotsorry #everyonelovesbabychicks #fluffybuttfriday #cutebabychicks #fluffybutts #babychicks #thedodo #socute #buzzfeedanimals #videooftheday #ilovemychickens #mypetsmakemebreakfast #bestpetsever #freerangechickens #backyardchickens #freerange #fresheggs #chickensofinstagram #urbanfarm #backyardfarm #backyardfarm #urbanfarming #sustainableliving #urbanhomestead #realhensofoc

I was pretty down after today's loss of Duck Duck, which followed the loss of 16 chicks last week, to the point where I was questioning whether homesteading was for me. To that Jon quipped: "When you're this close to life, you have to experience death." The new chicks that arrived this afternoon are a reminder of how true that statement is. We get to experience chickens hatching, hens becoming mothers, ducks taking their first swim, and chickens trying to fly. Some days there are losses. But mostly, there is an abundance of life. . . . #pekinduck #womenwhofarm #farmher #farmlife #farmlifebestlife #homesteadersofinstagram #homestead #homesteadlife #homesteading #minifarm #hobbyfarm #backyardducks #ducklings #rurallife #rural #countrygirl #countryside #backyardhens #hens #chickens #chickensofig #chickensofinstagram #ilovemyducks #ilovemychickens #backyardflock #backyardchickens #backyardchickenmag #circleoflife at Rensselaer County, New York

My awesome Australorp ladies - Maya and Charlotte 👯‍♀️ Maya had a rough molt but is all fluffed out and back to her beautiful self. ♥️ I love this picture as you can really see the similarities and differences between them. Very similar feather coloring and body size but Charlotte’s comb and wattles are brighter and bigger. They have pretty similar personalities too except Maya “talks” a lot more. She might be the most vocal of all our girls 😁 #australorp #chickensofinstagram #backyardchickens #ilovemychickens #chickens #chickensaspets

I didn’t seem to have much inspiration for an Egg Vignette. But I went to the Sonic Drive In for an afternoon Dr Pepper, (no, I don’t do that often). There is a flower shop right next door, and I decided to hop in there to see what they might have. I asked the young lady and she came out with a big bunch of yellow daisies for $6. Sold. I needed something to brighten my otherwise gloomy gray day. Spring is going to be here. It may float like a butterfly or sting like a bee, but rest assured it’s coming. I’m playing with Penny @happydaysfarm for #eggvignette #fresheggs #Texasfresh #DaingerfieldFlowerShop #DaingerfieldTexas #backyardchickens #ilovemychickens #springiscoming #nikonphotography #insidelighting #iloveeggs #greens #browns #white #newlayerthisweek

Lucille, queen of the snow pile!! 🐔👑❄ Shoveling out the run and chipping at the ice in there. Back breaking for sure. It's 43°F today so the melt is beginning!! Trying to get as much out as I can before it all floods the run like crazy. Lucy thought the dirty snow pile would be a fun place to hang out. 😋 . . . . . . . . . #backyardchickens #crazychickenlady #polishchicken #chickensofinstagram #chickens #chickensofig #mypetchicken #ilovemychickens #winterinnewengland #hensofinstagram #henstagram #poultry #freerangechickens #silverlacedpolish #backyardpoultrymag #hen #backyardpoultry #sunset #petsofinstagram #farmphotography #chickenlove #chickenlife

Throw back to Bianca and Magda the day we got them. That night we put them under broody Dorabella and she adopted these two golden fluffballs as her own. Hard to believe that was almost two years ago. #kirkpatchicks #bianca #magda #dorabella #babychicks #motherhen #henandchicks . . . #chickensofinstagram #hensofinstagram #backyardchickens #urbanchickens #friendsnotfood #petchickens #ilovemychickens #chickens #hens #bufforpington #wyandotte #🐣 #mixedflock #goldenlacedwyandotte #coloradochickens #chicks #backyardpoultrymag

Missin’ my buddy’s crow this morning 😢 but I texted the person we gave him to and he said Starlord is living like a king! He’s on a farm with 30+ hens (😬), 4 other roosters, and has his own coop with 3 lady friends. Dude has it made! . . Thinking of my dude and sipping on a bulletproof coffee out of my rooster mug 🐔 espresso, hot water, @vitalproteins collagen and gelatin, @fourthandheart original unsalted ghee, and a splash of @hatcherfamilydairy cream. . . Oh and today is my FRIDAY 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 at Nashville, Tennessee

Larry chicken, Bob chicken and Cali chicken - we’ve had them almost a week but they know we always bring them food and company, so out they come running and chatting.
