Soon the Minnesota winter will keep me and my girls inside most of the time. I get cranky. They get cranky. I try to spend as much time with them during the summer as I can. Winter gets eyeball-freezing cold sometimes. ( @nicnchicks )
“Heroes get remembered but legends never die...” Today, @urbanchickeninc is our hero and legend for braving our rooster. Yes he looks calm now, but chasing Courtney while I chased it with a stick had to come to an end. We’re one chicken fewer now but are thrilled with whatever farm or dinner plate Emmylou ends up at.
Thanks for the help, John!
Baby animals are so much fun! I love being up early when I have a clutch of chicks to tend to in the morning. I had been saving this chickweed to use in salad, but decided I’d give my chicks a treat instead since there’s nothing green in their pen. The name for this delicious edible weed is due to the fact that chickens love it so much. Look at all those happy chirpy little chickies (and my one duckling)! Also, see what a great job my broody is doing. ❤️ August sure makes a good mother hen. 🐣 🐥
