Meet my old ladies, Numbers 1,2 & 3, my first hens. They are 3 ½ years old.They taught me how to be an backyard egg farmer. We still get a couple of eggs per week from them and they keep the young hens in line.
the ladies are cranking out the product these days. Our Buff Orpington and Silverlaced Wyandotte // Burma hybridish (we’re not sure what diana is but we love her all the same) lady chickens, Eleanor Roosevelt, Miss Diana Ross, Betty Ford, and Rosa Parks are laying daily despite the freezing temperatures. Yesterday we performed comb maintenance so they wouldnt get frost bitten and they thanked us with more of these little beauties. I absolutely love how they are all different :) I guess we better get cooking!
I just finished up farm-sitting for my best friend’s parents for the billionth time. They have a horse, four goats, seven chickens, two dogs, and a cat that are all free to happily roam their 2 acres together. All of the animals are rescues. I love their little farm and it gives me so much inspiration for what I want my future home to be like.
