As much as these reds are feisty and not as friendly as others I have to say that their attitude has contributed to their survival. We always want the sweetest and friendliest chickens but is that really good for them? I’m beginning to think it’s better, for the hens sake, for them not to be too trusting and the more aggressive type to make it out here. At least they put up a fight when getting attacked and don’t give up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Farming is certainly not for the faint at heart. But you can certainly learn a lot from it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your thoughts? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - - - #lavenderbnbfarm #chickensofinstagram #chickenmama #homestead #mypetchicken #welovechickens #backyardchickenmag #countrylifestyle #countryliving #newhsmpshirereds #crazychickenlady #farm #chickens_cute_feature #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #homesteading #backyardfarming #urbanfarming #coopdrama #garden #lavender #iamamodernfarmer #sonoma #urbanfarm #urbanhomesteading #homesteadlife #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #farmlife #farmstyle at Sonoma, California

- 🌿 Q U A I L E G G S A N Y O N E ?🌿 - -Serious #eggenvy with these beautiful eggs. Lots of great info here. 💜💜💜💜 Courtesy of @skygirlfarm Did you know it only takes 18 days to incubate quail? I cannot believe how quickly this incubation time flew by. They are almost on day 15 and need to be moved into the hatcher soon. . I need to put the finishing touches on their brooder. I'm using a significantly smaller mesh for them as they will be so tiny when they hatch out. I'm repurposing an old bookshelf that I picked up for free off the Facebook marketplace. I'll be sure to post some photos. . Because quail are so little at hatch they have similar but different needs from chicken. . For one thing, they need not only the smallest water basin, it's been suggested to me to fill the bottom of the basin with small pebbles to keep the quail from drowning. . Secondly, quail have a higher protein requirement and game feed should be used for them. The catch is though their mouths are so tiny the feed needs to be ground up for them. . Have you raised quail? Any tips for this 1st time quail mom? . . #quaileggs #Hatching . #lavenderbnbfarm #freshfarmeggs #chickenmama #homestead #homesteadlife #welovechickens #farm #countrylifestyle #countryliving #supportsmallfarms #homesteadliving #farm #farmlife #eggenvy #backyardfarm #homesteading #backyardfarming #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #farmstead #lavender #iamamodernfarmer #sonoma #homestead #urbanhomesteading #homesteadlife #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #farmlife #farmstyle at Sonoma, California

So this just happened- we order chicks for the kids for 4H. They were suppose to be here tomorrow or Saturday...surprise! Nothing like a mad dash to the post office. One looked dead when I got there and now all seem to be ok! #oldenglishbantam #4hshowmanship

You can never have to many posts about baby chicks hatching right? 6 different Ameraucana moms with 3 different varieties and all the chicks look the same so far. #hatchingchicks #babychicks #oliveegger

@iamcountryside theme: feathers To remember Our little puffed cheek Easter Egger beauty, we used to call, “buchechudo” , which means puffy cheeks in #Portuguese. I can’t express in words how special this little laidy was to me. Super friendly, trusting, would follow me around the coop while I lifted up rocks looking for good grubs. She was taken last night right in front of my eyes by a brave Cayote that had the audacity to enter our property and steal her from under the fence (my fault for such a crappy made fence) and all that was left for me of her was a bunch of feathers. Her feather formation was just stunning as well as the color of her green eggs and her beautiful temperament . I watched yesterday as the Cayote predator walked off towards the back (from my window) with her in his mouth, my dogs had been in the front of the property when it happened. The Cayote knew when to make its move at the right time. It watched it’s prey keenly and attacked at the right moment it felt it had the right to. We ran after it after securing our dogs but it disappeared in the vineyards. Realities of farming are not fun. But what a great opportunity to work and bond with these beloved creatures. It’s our responsibility to keep our animals (who rely on us) safe from these predators lurking in the shadows.💜💜💜 Farmlife has toughened both of us up , no more tears, or feeling sad, just the strength the keep working and move forward amidst these injustices that love to show their ugly head at the most opportune times. “Life’s better with lavender (and WITHOUT drama predators).” - @lavenderbnbfarm What are your thoughts on this? #positivevibes #truthquotes #feathers #lavenderbnbfarm #chickensofinstagram #chickenmama #homestead #mypetchicken #welovechickens #backyardchickenmag #countrylifestyle #countryliving #easteregger #crazychickenlady #farm #chickens_cute_feature #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #homesteading #backyardfarming #urbanfarming #coopdrama #iamamodernfarmer #sonoma #urbanfarm #urbanhomesteading #homesteadlife #urbanfarming #farmlife #farmstyle at Sonoma, California

🌿 H E N H I G H L I G H T 🌿⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here’s our Legbar Pullet. She’s a doll with her cute “hair bun”. Here’s the history of these lovely breeds:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Legbar is a rare British autosexing chicken breed. It was created in the early twentieth century by Reginald Crundall Punnett and Michael Pease at the Genetical Institute of Cambridge University. It was created by cross-breeding Barred Plymouth Rock chicken, Leghorns, Cambars, and in the case of Cream Legbars, Araucanas.The Araucana blood in the Cream Legbar is reflected in its crest and blue to blue-green eggs. (Wikipedia)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Personality: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cream Legbars are chatty, active, very curious and remarkable foragers. They love to investigate their surroundings and will tag along while you do chores. Charming does not even begin to describe this lovable breed. Uniquely feathered, the Legbar sports a small, slicked back crest. No matter how small, this breed has a huge personality. She'll certainly be the talk of the flock, not only because of her stunning features but her personable disposition. You can expect about 180 eggs per year from the hens. Our Cream Legbar line is hand selected from various breeders from across the country. (@meyer_hatchery)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Does anyone have these beauties in their flock also? #lavenderbnbfarm #chickensofinstagram #chickenmama #homestead #mypetchicken #welovechickens #backyardchickenmag #countrylifestyle #countryliving #creamlegbar #crazychickenlady #farm #chickens_cute_feature #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #homesteading #backyardfarming #urbanfarming #coopdrama #garden #lavender #iamamodernfarmer #sonoma #urbanfarm #urbanhomesteading #homesteadlife #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #farmlife #farmstyle at Sonoma, California

@marypopinfresh and I just finished a ton of art for @scrambledgso and we could not be more excited. Mary stayed up all last night diligently finishing so many pieces just so that we could go hang them today. I could not be more proud of how much love and time Mary put into all these pieces. I would never be able to create all this beauty if I did not have such a great liver/muse on my side. #artforsale #chickenart #chickens #chicken # #chickensofinstagram #chickenart #welovechickens

Our first frozen egg; which comes as a result of not laying in the nesting/laying boxes. So when we started with our chicks laying we trained the first batch of hens to lay IN the boxes.. in the fall when we added the new girls to the flock .. a few of them are just starting to lay but NOT in the boxes .. Anyone give any pointers on how to get the new girls to lay in the boxes instead of the floor!?!?!? Second pic is a few of them hanging out today and this weather.. phew #chickenquestions #chickens #4hchickens #backyardchickens #barkyardbees #chicks #theygrowsofast #chickengirls #welovechickens #happychickens #chickensofinstagram #meyerhatchery #healthychicks #growtoofast #realcoop #homemadecoop #familyproject #pullet #millefleur #bantam #bantamchicks #babyitscold #polarvortex
