Ranch Residents: Meet the Chickens

We love our chickens, we give each of them a name, we make them our pets, and we spend time with them everyday!  Having a chicken coop, watching the chickens cluck and explore, and gathering fresh eggs are some of the simplest joys in the world here at the ranch.

In the spring of 2016, we built a chicken coop together as a family project. You can read about that HERE. The original seven chicks that we started off with were:

“Peach”–a Salmon Faverolle

“Gladys”–a White Brahma

“Alex”–a Gold-Laced Wyandotte

“Peepers”–a Golden Comet

“Star”–an Amerecauna

“Priscilla”–an Easter Egger

“Domino”–a Dominique

For being fragile animals, the chickens have done surprisingly well holding up to our rough little boys!  The boys love to chase the chickens around and pick them up and squeeze them.  Besides being fun, the chickens have been great in teaching our kids responsibility.  I look forward to years of fun ahead of us with these little ladies.

Baby’s First Sun

Week 7 submission for MCP Project 52.  Theme is open your heart.

My heart is open to animals, especially those of the newborn variety.  This was the firm warm day of little foal’s life, the first day to soak up the sun lazily.
