Tuesday's Tip from Our Junior Blogger: Put Your Chickens to Bed


Tuesday's Tip From Our Junior Blogger
Chicken tending tips straight from the mouth of a 5-year-old!

By Little Chicken Tender


Put Your Chickens to Bed:
At night make sure your chickens go to sleep in their coop because if they are not asleep in their coop they may get scared and call for help.  Cats, raccoons and other stuff may get them.  You should put them to bed at 8:30pm because that is when you go to bed at night.  During the day the chickens should sleep anywhere next to the house because if they don't an eagle might see them and dive down and get them and eat them.


Resting next to the house to avoid being eaten by an eagle.


Thank you for the tip on keeping your chickens safe while sleeping, Little Chicken Tender.  We look forward to your tip next week!

I've Thought About Quitting

I have been feeling a bit sad over here at ChickinBoots these past few days.  Someone stole the following image that I created one year ago:

The person removed my ChickinBoots watermark and added their own page name to it.  The tampered image has now been shared hundreds of thousands of times.  My first reaction: angry, sad and frustrated.  I spend so much time creating my art and to have an image stolen out from under me and tampered with is heartbreaking.  I reached out to the page owner about taking it down. They eventually did but before agreeing to doing so had the audacity to ask me to prove to them that this image did in fact belong to ChickinBoots. Really?!
Because of my frustration and sadness I have felt this past week I actually contemplated shutting down ChickinBoots.  But after a few days of thinking things through I realized that quitting was not the answer.  If I quit I would let the people who do these kinds of things win.  I would also let down the people who support me…

What's the Difference: Ameraucana vs. Easter Egger

I will admit that when we first embarked on our chicken journey back in 2014 I thought a chicken was a chicken. Once we started doing research we were amazed at all the breeds and their differences. My family and I quickly came to the conclusion that we needed an Ameraucana because it laid blue eggs and had a beard!  
Meet Edna, our Ameraucana...or so we thought.



When Edna laid her first egg we didn't think much about the fact that it was actually more of a mint green than blue, but as time went on we began to wonder about her breed because her glorious beard wasn't coming in. When doing some research I came across an article written by Lisa Steele with Fresh Eggs Daily called Ameraucana vs. Araucana vs. Easter Eggers - The Blue Egg Layersand this is what I learned:

Ameraucana
Pure breed chicken, originating from South America, recognized by the APA since 1984
blue eggs pea comb muff and beard red earlobes tail blue legs light foot bottoms

Easter Egger Mixed breed chicken, not recognized b…

Orange Peel Coop Cleaner

Orange Peel Coop Cleaner
To clean your coop, have you ever used the Orange Peel White Vinegar Coop Cleaner from Fresh Eggs Daily?  I love this particular cleaner because it smells better than bleach, it's all natural and it's multi-purpose!   How is it multi-purpose, you ask? 
White vinegar kills mold and is an ant repellent.   Citrus oil is a natural insect repellent and solvent. Cinnamon oil kills mosquito larvae. Vanilla bean repels flies, mosquitos and other insects.
This cleaner is so easy to make.  You can whip up a batch of this awesome stuff in about 5 minutes!  Give it a try!



Ingredients/Supplies: 4 oranges 2 cinnamon sticks 2 vanilla beans bottle of white vinegar 2 one-pint canning jars spray bottle
Directions: Peel the oranges and divide the peels between the two canning jars. Break the cinnamon sticks in half and add to jars.  Slit the vanilla bean and add to jars.  Pour the vinegar in each jar making sure to cover the peels.  Leave some headroom in each jar.  Put on the lids and…
