  9. We have over 40 chickens, many with names. But my favorite (at the moment) is one of our newest Ameraucanas. She was the lightest peep and has remained whitish-gray in color. And of course, that breed has such a "becoming" beard-like appearance, making them look old. So I named her Betty White, hahaha!!

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

Upcycling: Repurposing a Crib Railing

My babies are growing up quickly and this time I am not referring to my feathered ladies.  I can't believe my Little Chicken Tender and Bitty Bantam will be in Kindergarten and Preschool next year. Where did the time go?  Now, the only thing I have left from their baby days are memories and one recalled drop-side crib.   
Currently, the crib has been converted into a toddler bed for the Bitty Bantam, which means we just took off the dangerous front drop-side railing. Once we are entirely through with the crib/toddler bed we can't donate it or give it to anyone which means the crib is destined for the landfill. The idea of it sitting in a landfill did not sit well with me so I became determined to figure out a way to repurpose it. While working outside and chicken proofing fences I got the idea to repurpose the railing into something for the garden.


Viola! An Herb Garden Ladder!

Edible Flowers for Your Chickens

As we all know, chickens love to eat a lot of our plants which can be very frustrating so why not plant some nutritious flowers that you AND your chicken can eat! 
In the past, I have planted a few of the flowers listed below for my chickens and they showed no interest in eating them.  I swear they did that to torture me!  Have you tried planting any of these for your chickens?  What has been your experience with chickens and edible flowers?


The following is a list provided by Lisa at Fresh Eggs Daily:
Nasturtium Squash Blossoms Violets Marigolds Bee Balm Roses Echinacea Clover Blossoms Dandelions Yarrow Sunflowers Apple Blossoms Calendula Carnations Chrysanthemums Citrus Blossoms Elderberry Blossoms Geraniums Hibiscus  Hollyhock Impatiens Lavender  Lilac Pansy Pea Blossoms Peony Phlox Snap Dragon

Happy planting and thanks for reading!
