We've had chickens for well over a year now. It isn't very often that we let our girls out to free range in the main backyard. They have a complete side yard to themselves, but the grass is greener on the other side....so to speak. Their run area does not have any grass, so the hubs lets them over into the main backyard for some free range time. They have plenty of room in their run, just no grass.
This is 5 of our 6 girls. We have 1 Barred Rock that we adopted from the school that I work at. She was our first chicken her name is Violet because she loves blueberries, and the instigator to convince us to get 5 more. Then we have Scarlet (Foxy Cleopatra) she is a Rhode Island Red, 2 Easter Eggers - Coco and Cupcake (Cupcake is not pictured). We also have 1 white chicken Floppy Doodle Doo (not sure what breed she is, we were told a Delaware when we bought her, but know that isn't true), and last but not least is Moon "Cricket", she is a Black Copper Maran.
Well, there you have it, an introduction to our girls. We hope to bring you information on what we have learned in our first year of having backyard chickens, along with gardening tips, recipes, crafts, DIY and maybe some genealogy thrown in here and there.
