Nope, We Are Not Coming Out!

IMG_1369

A little bit of a chicken update today.  You know we are getting lots of snow when I go out to tend to the chickens and I don’t have 24 hens at my feet trying really hard to trip me every step of the way.  This is their run this morning.  Not even one chicken foot print in that snow, lol.

IMG_1363

A closer look at their coop door. . . .yep they see me but are not going to venture out, oh no.

IMG_1362

A little bit (really a lot) of coaxing got this girl to take a step out and then right back in the warm coop she went.

IMG_1360

In this picture the girls are busy eating some cracked corn, which they love, love, love.  Want to hear them.  Click on the picture above.  :)  You will see and hear them eating and making their happy sounds.  I love them.  You need to get girls of your own so you can hear this daily.

Okay, I am off to stamp now.

Do We Need to Grow Webs Between Our Toes?

DSC_0032

As we all know, life can get a little trying sometimes.  For the past 7 days it has rained and rained and rained.  So much rain that I’ve had to pull out the chicken boots in order to wade through the pond which covered the chicken yard.  My girls kept looking at me from their warm hen house with a question in their eyes “do we need to grow webs between our toes in order to go outside again?”  There was even so much rain that our switch that runs our well pump for the house was under water and so we had no water on the inside of the house.    Yep, you got it, lots of water outside, no water inside.  I just have to laugh it off.

DSC_0035

But today is a better day, the sun is shining and the water outside is slowing going down.  Our well pump switch is drying out, we can now see the ground again in the chicken yard and my girls are happy to be out slurping up all of the drowned worms and such.  When their bellies are full they retire to the old lawn chairs to perch and soak up the sun.

This just reminded me, when you have a few days of craziness it makes those good days following so much sweeter.

I’ll be back in a bit with a new project for you.  :)

Don’t have a Garbage Disposal, Get a Chicken or Two or Twenty Four

Screen Shot 2018-02-09 at 8.42.14 AM

Awe, so many of you ask about the girls (hens) on a regular bases, well when it is cold outside I spend about 2 minutes with them, I’m a sissy when it comes to temperatures of 20 degrees or lower.  I just go out  long enough to fill their feed and water containers and give them any scraps from the kitchen I can find.   They will eat pretty much anything, including chicken left overs.  I know gross, right?  But any protein you can give them in the Winter months the better.   Just think, in the summer they have lots of protein flying and crawling around in the way of bugs and worms but, in the Winter, nothing.Screen Shot 2018-02-09 at 8.42.34 AM

They are better than a garbage disposal because they give you the yummiest eggs in return.  Seriously, when I clean out the frig the girls are in heaven.

So that’s it from the chicken yard.  I’ll be back in a bit posting from my cozy craft room with today’s stamping project.

Naked Chickens? It Just Might Be Fall

DSC_0009

I’ve been getting so many inquiries about the girls (hens) lately that I thought I better give you a chicken update.  :)  Here in Ohio we get a wonderful change of seasons, for Fall the leaves on the trees change color and fall to the ground, the fields turn golden and we have warm days and cool nights.   This is also the time for molting.  Molting you ask?  Yep Molting!  That’s when you see half naked chickens running around in the chicken yard.  They are ashamed of how they look so you will see them running out of the picture frame like in the above shot (top left), lol.

DSC_0017

This is poor JoJo, she is usually so beautiful but right now she is missing half of her feathers, including all of her tail feathers..  During molting a whole lot of their feathers fall out and beautiful new ones come in.  It looks painful and I try not to pick them up if I don’t have to.

Screen Shot 2017-09-25 at 2.54.35 PM

When their new feathers poke through the skin they have a little waxy cap on the end that they pick off and leave laying everywhere.  Now doesn’t that look painful!  Kinda makes me ashamed I complain about shaving my legs.

DSC_0010

The entire chicken yard is covered in feathers, it looks like a real massacre has happen here.  Just imagine trying to rake feathers into a pile to clean up with a slight breeze blowing, lol.

DSC_0012 2

Egg productions stops for the chickens that are molting since they are using all of their energy to make new feathers.  I hardly blame them for taking a break.

DSC_0013

Only half of the flock is on breaks so we are still getting the most delicious fresh eggs.  MMMM

While we are on the subject of eggs, did you know they come in all colors, sizes and shapes, lol.  Yep, they are not all uniform in size like in those cartons at the store.  Check out the brown oblong one in the photo above.  It is so long the lid on the egg carton will not shut over it..  It is probably a double yoker, bonus!

Well that is what is happening right outside my door.

Thanks for stopping by. . . . .

Huge Hugs,

On another note. . . .

I got in the mood to create a chicken card today after hanging out for a bit this morning with my girls (hens) and buddy (rooster).  DSC_0007_edited-33

Even when you give the girls a great set up with nesting boxes you will still find eggs here and there.  Just look at those 3 cute eggs in the coop corner.  I guess that was a comfy spot on a chilly morning.  Never fails, one girl will lay in a weird spot and there soon will be more hens standing in line ready to lay in the same place.

DSC_0008

A couple of the girls did as they were taught and left me eggs in the nesting boxes.

DSC_0011

This old girl always comes in the coop to inspect what I am doing in there.  She will just hang out on the door edge until I’m finished gathering eggs.  Kind looks at me like I look at a repairman that is in my house, with a bit of a watchful eye.

DSC_0006

This is Jo Jo.  It’s hard to see but she has a crippled up right foot.  She was born with it that way.  She actually walks on the top of her right foot instead of on the bottom the way it is turned up.  When she hatched it was apparent her foot was not right.  I tried to straighten it out with a little homemade boot but to no avail.  Some may have just did away with her but, we let her enjoy her life as if she were normal and she has reward us by being one of our best layers.  Jo Jo is super sweet too.  I believe we made the right decision.

DSC_0020

We only have one Rooster, Stewie Jr.  He is a mixed breed.  The only one to hatch out of a clutch of seven eggs.  Here he is in all of his glory, surrounded by his girls, there are 14 of them.  He is one lucky rooster.  One thing you have to respect about a rooster, they will sacrifice themselves to a predator in order to protect their hens.  I’m hoping Stewie Jr. never has to do that.  He makes quite the commotion when there is a hawk in the area so the girls will take cover and then he stands out in the open a bit just daring the hawk to swoop down.  With that said it makes perfect sense that roosters out weight the hens by quite a bit.  Stewie stands about 6 inches taller than the girls.  He is a big boy.  I can’t see any hawk being able to lift him off the ground.

And that is what is happening in our neck of the woods. . . . . .

Chicken Chilly! :)

IMG_1263

Nope, this isn’t a Chicken Chili recipe post, lol.  It is a chicken chilly post because it is a chilly 12 degrees this morning in the chicken yard and I just gave the girls and boy some hot oatmeal to eat to warm their bellies.  Yes, I spoil our flock with warm oatmeal on cold mornings.

I have received many requests for an update on my girls (hens).  I haven’t done one for a really long long time, I’ll explain why.

IMG_1268

I couldn’t do a chicken post without talking about how our flock has changed considerably over the past 4 months.  My old hens are no longer, it was sad but once a chicken stops laying it is time for them to be processed.  After all, fresh eggs are why we raise chickens.  This was a very hard lesson for Russ and I to learn, being from the city and all, we did not grow up around live stock.  But to continue raising chickens we had to learn that lesson and we did all the processing ourselves.  School of hard knocks!

IMG_1264

We replaced the old girls with new chicks that have grown almost to full size now.  They will be laying in February.  I will be so happy to have fresh eggs again. We have had to buy eggs at the store for the past month and a half.  Doesn’t seem right but, we waited to long to process the old flock to make room for the new, another lesson learned.  After all of the hard lessons we learned this year I certainly appreciate every single bite of chicken and every single egg, whether it is from our own flock or from the store.  Society is so very far removed from where our food comes from, Russ and I now have it in perspective.

IMG_1270

I haven’t shown you this guy for a long time, he was a fluffy little chick just a few short months ago.  With the 14 hens we have just this one very large rooster, he is a busy guy and a bit camera shy so I had to click this picture of him on the run, lol.

Now that I have this post out of the way, my future chicken posts will be much more lighter in content.  Time for some stamping. .. . . . .

He Now Has a Name

Hi there,

Last week I asked for some help naming our only rooster and you all helped with hundreds of name suggestions.  Well, he has a name and it is Stewie.  I’ve called him Stewie for a few days and he is now looking at me when I say it.   Not sure if it is a look of approval or not, lol.  But he is getting use to it.

Thanks everyone for you help!
