The Amazing Maisie is at it again.

April 13, 2014

Miss Maisie went broody 3 times last year, but I never let her raise a single chick. I would normally stick some eggs under her and let her do her thing, but since I was “incubating” babies, I decided it was best not to have more little things to take care of.  So she had a little […]

Big Mama’s at it again

May 21, 2012

*Sorry, no Menu Plan Monday today, I’m having a bit of recipe block (is there such a thing) and I really wanted to share this with you guys.* What else can you do with a bucket full of chicks? But put them under the best broody hen!  Remember Big Mama?  Last year I snuck 21 […]

Big Mama

August 3, 2011

As a birthday gift to myself I ordered hatching eggs (of course).  They were shipped to me and on the same day I put them in the incubator, my hen Pumpkin went broody for the second time this year.  So, I put about 10 eggs under her as well. If you remember, Pumpkin was one of […]

Just call me a hole digger, burying person

July 30, 2011

I feel as though death has taken up permanent residence in our home…. In the past 6 months I’ve had more deaths than in the past 6 years; 2 grandparents, 1 pregnancy, 1 dog, 1 kitten, several chickens, tons of chicks and lots of fish. Just this week 3 deaths (1 chicken, 1 kitten, 1 […]

The Watermelon Chickens….part 2

July 2, 2011

part 1 Don’t you hate it when you buy a watermelon only to get it home and find out it’s old? I do, but my chickens don’t!! Check out Maisie with her 2nd brood, and 4 adopted chicks.  She’s such a good mommy! And those chicks, you think they will be spoiled for life? After […]

A Weekend at Home

May 31, 2011

The Memorial Day holiday has me all confused, so I missed Menu Plan Monday, and my usual recipe on Tuesdays. We spent the weekend at home, oh was it a glorious weekend.  Lots of playing outside, enjoying the hot weather, playing with the boys and cooking from the garden. The boys loved playing on the slip […]

A broody….. finally…

April 21, 2011

Despite all the loss our family has endured the past few weeks, life continues on with my chickens. Maisie, my 8 month old Olive Egger pullet, became broody a few weeks back.  I have hoped for a broody hen ever since getting chickens a few years ago. It’s very unusual for a chicken as young as she […]

Spring is in the Air

February 25, 2011

At least here, as we’ve been hatching a lot of chicks on the “farm”.  Just about every week a new set is hatching. The boys really love watching the chicks hatch. See the egg is fully zipped around the shell and just about to pop out! Little W eagerly awaiting the chick to hatch. Little […]

Egg Candy

February 2, 2011

Chicken porn, eye candy, good eats.  What ever you want to call them, I just love the look of these beautiful eggs. This is the ultimate for me, the reason I got chickens in the first place.  The beautiful colored eggs. In the beginning I didn’t even know there were so many colors. And look […]

Little Blue Piper

January 19, 2011

In our household chicks come and go, lots of them.  The boys have had quite the experience with them, you might remember this and this. But this little chick hatched all by herself, no little chickie bubbas or sissies.  So of course she was a little spoiled. We named her Piper, (I was watching too […]
