I Love My Chickens!!

I mean I really, really LOVE my chickens!

They have so much personality and are so fun to watch. They love their human family and give us the most delicious eggs! I am really having the hardest time waiting for our new babies to arrive. They'll be here on or around April 10th. We're getting 3 more day old baby Buff Orpingtons. The excitement is growing in our household. I'll soon be getting the brooder ready for some new little peeps. Spring is so fun for chicken fanciers!!

Guess who my photographer was. It was Tara, and she's not bad behind the lens! I added the texture though.

  3. Wonderful photos! We love our girls too. We have one BO (Dorothy) and she is definitely a character. Then we have five others all different breeds. Chicken ownership is so rewarding!

  4. Stopping by from Fresh Eggs Daily on FB! Wonderful photos! We incubated chicken eggs last spring and ended up with 7 hens and 3 roosters. The roosters have been rehomed a short distance away, but the hens are QUITE spoiled! I always thought of them as "just chickens" until we hatched them!

    1. I know exactly what you mean. I too always thought of them as just chickens. Amazing how owning a few can really change that perspective!

  10. Thanks for commenting on my blog! I'm with you on the chicken thing. Plans are in the works for our first flock coming this year ... My best chicken memory is winning "most unusual pet" at the county fair for my bantum roo Cunningham. I think I was 7. Look forward to following your tales!
