Today I'm planning on working in the garden and getting my garden post ready to publish for you!
It's the last day for introductions (yay!). You will finally get to meet the chickens and ducks on this special day.
First is the chickens!
As I mentioned in my introduction, we got our first chicks over a year ago, around Easter time. The dream of having 1 chick was quickly crushed as the Tractor Supply worker told us we had to get a minimum of 6. I definitely have no regrets on buying those first 6 chicks. They have started a wonderful thing here that keeps me busy.
Now, we have a huge variety of chickens, each with their own personalities.
Again, we have around 50 chickens all together.
feathers. Momma is very protective of her little ones, which is a good thing. For her first time going broody, she did fantastic! It was SO NICE not having to take care of them myself. The brown one in the bottom left-hand corner is Chirp's baby and the rest are Tighty Whitey's.
I will just go ahead and show you 1 of our 6 Guineas. We just got them about 2 weeks ago, along with Nugget and the rabbits. I haven't really got to spend a bunch of time with them, so all I know is- they are sneaky and they like to fly. We have them in a pen connected to the Momma's pen. They can squeeze through the chicken wire and create a hectic mess with the Mommy Hen.
One has even escaped from the chicken coop itself! I was pretty impressed with it's work, even though I was worked up over it getting out. Luckily, We caught it and returned it to it's home. Now we take even more precaution when opening and closing the chicken coop.

Those were only a few of my many chickens here on the farm. I'm sure you will meet the rest in later posts.
Look forward to seeing all the duckies! I will be posting their intros shortly!
Thanks so much for all the support!(: Stay tuned in for all the buzz.
