Since most of you didn’t make it to my garden tour on Saturday, I thought I’d post a little slideshow of the garden. Read more

We built a coop two years ago so we could get chickens. I really wanted chickens. We started our journey with two hens, Hazel and Henny Penny, and two chicks that both ended up being roosters. We sent one of the roosters to my mom’s farm and kept the white one we named Buttercup. Then last year we got our adored black silkie, Licorice. So, now we have three hens and one rooster in town.
It’s been awhile since I’ve shared pictures of our coop so, this is me sharing! Read more
It’s time for Licorice to be with the hens and Buttercup (our rooster). The hens seem interested but Buttercup keeps charging/chasing my sweet little chick. I figure there’s something I’m doing wrong to introduce the chick to the rest of the flock (three chickens).
Before today I had Licorice in the coop with the rest of the chickens but she was in the elevated hen house alone. To help everyone get used to each other I put a wall of hardware cloth in the middle of the little hen house so the hens and Buttercup can sleep in the same area as Licorice and get used to each other.
I left the area so everyone can get used to the new setup and when I got back, this is what I found:
Not quite what I had in mind…
Henny Penny, Buttercup (the rooster) and Hazel.
