Chickens like what?

The girls have been laying a steady 4 eggs a day- although it is molt season so I can’t tell who is and isn’t laying. There is 7 in this coop- and poor Spaz hit her first real molt- she looked horrible and there are feathers everywhere!

We feed them a little sunflower seeds in the shell every day!

Did you know you can be frugal and feed your chickens your mums? I bought 3 from my daughter’s fundraiser for music for school- and boy did those girls enjoy them!

The littles are not laying yet- but I keep my eyes peeled every day for eggs! The coops got cleaned out last month. I should show you an after picture if I can- they ate everything down to the stems.

I also found out something was digging- may have been my pooch- near the coops- so I filled in the holes so I don’t step in them. And in the meantime- also got covered in ants from an ant bed! Gracious- we are a hot mess!

Enjoy some pictures below!

  1. What a great tip feeding your chickens mums! They will be on sale soon here and they are really easy to propagate to make more for the garden. Now I can make the chicken yard pretty and delicious for them!

  2. What a waste of good mums! They probably taste just as good after bloom.
    If I don’t get the pears quick enough, the hens eat them where they fall. In a way, I am glad they don’t go to waste. It is a small tree, so doesn’t make any mess that the hens won’t clean up.
