In honor of our new chicks we did an official “Chicken” Creation Study!! Can you believe this is the 3rd summer we have had chicks/chickens and this is the first time we’ve done an official study on them =) We had 8 chicks (1st one hatched Sunday) but tragedy struck tonight and one died =( ,…

Guess What?

We have another broody hen and she is laying on 12 eggs (I believe). I’m a little worried that she isn’t going to be as good as a mom as the last broody hen BUT hopefully I’ll be pleasantly surprised. So look for the results around the 31st of May. Update on our chicks from…

Hatching Eggs the Old-Fashioned Way

1st: two chicks peeping out 2nd. four chicks moving around 3rd. A 1.5 day old chick *************************************** We decided that if a chicken ever got broody we would give it a try BUT we would let the mom do everything! So early in April we had of of our Black Australope go broody and we…

cute LITTLE eggs

Here are our Serama Chickens, we have two Roosters and two Hens. Aren’t they so cute! Full grown they are only as big as coke can. The only thing about these little chickens is their eggs are so small =) The pictures below show are very first Serama egg, the hens (well, at least one…

Thank the Lord for eager laying Chickens

Look at this……………..one of our chickens couldn’t wait, she had to crawl up and get in the box even though it was occupied. =o) They have two lower laying boxes but they seem to prefer the top ones. ************************** I want to take the time to say THANK YOU Lord for our chickens and all…

Look we got new Chicks

Chickens and their very nutritional EGGS

We had a chicken die today.

We do not know why……………….we really have no answers for all the questiosn our boys have about the chiken that died. My oldest yelled for me when he went to open the coop door this morning to let the chickens out. He said one of our white hens looked terrible. He was right and she…

YEA, two eggs at the same time!! =o)

In the last 10 days we have gathered 9 eggs, it’s been wonderful. My guess is that we have at least 2 (maybe 3) hens laying because I wouldn’t expect that when they first start laying that they would be able to produce one daily. Well, tonight I went out to the coop and I…

Praise Report: We have eggs!!!

Look, our first egg since…………well, I can’t remember! The boys and I were so happy when we found this about 5 or 6 days ago. I guess at least one of our Hens is laying again!!!!! As of yesterday we have received three eggs this week, YEA!!! Thank You Lord, this is an answer to…

Update on Our Chickens

The two smaller white chickens in the 1st pic are our newest ones. One of them is a hen we exchanged one of our roosters for. The other white one was given to us. She is a breed that gets fat quick and has shorter legs so she doesn’t move as quickly as the other…

Empty Laying Boxes ???

Empty Laying Boxes is all we’ve been seeing lately =o( As I shared a couple of days ago, we purchased two laying hens last Monday and in one full week we have only seen three eggs. That is NOT good. I don’t know if it’s just because they have not been completely on a laying…

Our First EGG………YEA!!!

This is a wonderful day for our family, we have our very first egg from our very own chicken. This is not from one of the chicks we bought back in April but it’s from one of the new laying Hens we just purchased on Monday. The boys were so happy, actually we all were!!…

A Snake in the chicken Coop

What a surprise I had when I walked into the coop late this morning!!! My hubby was my hero and came and got the King Snake out and let him loose in the woods. The boys thought that it was great and that the snake felt so cool!! =o)

We have New Chickens

New Pics of our Chicks……I just can’t help it =o)

We all thought it was pretty cool when the chickens started using the roost that my hubby built. So we just had to take some pictures when they started getting up there. It was like follow the leader. One right after the other hopped up and settled in! Call us crazy but we just love…
