  1. Usually my shirt held up at the end to form a "basket". tripped coming ot of the coop the other day, it wasn't pretty. Lost all those eggs and had to change my clothes and take a shower. Lesson learned I hope. This would be great! Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. Our hens just moved in 2 weeks ago. We are new to this and very anxious for them to start laying. They are of age. I take a basket out with me every morning in anticipation. Nothing yet, but would love to have this adorable apron for when they do.

  6. We only have a few hens, so my son brings them in one or two at a time. Chicken math hit and now we have 16 chicks coming this week. We are going to need to upgrade to a basket or apron when the new girls start laying!

  7. I currently use a plastic bucket but would absolutely love to win this apron! I love the beautiful colored roosters on it and it would go wonderful in my kitchen that is done in roosters!

  8. We use our sweatshirt pockets. Sometimes I will forget I have one in my pocket and go to the grocery with it all in there. It makes us laugh when I check my pockets in the store and out comes an egg!

  9. I use my beautiful basket from 1840 Farm.

  10. I usually put them in my jacket pocket. This has been a "problem" in the past when I forget about them and find them sometimes days later. I also let my Grandkids help me and although the older ones do a great job getting them to the kitchen, sometimes the younger ones forget they are not balls to be thrown for the dogs.

  35. Mostly I use my shirt, sometimes I'll go and fetch a basket if he we have more eggs than my shirt can handle. We can get up to 15 or so a day sometimes. This would be very handy to carry them back to the house and help prevent breaking some if the roll out of my shirt.

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
