A Chicken Named Dog

Adventures with a Flock Family

Had lots of #helpinghands at the #communitygarden today. They love this #wheelbarrow to move dirt. The #dirt was donated by the city from its #compost pile. Fall leaves are picked up at the curb and addedto a city-wide compost. The kids are working to fill #raisedgardenbeds to plant in. Today we planted onions. #composting #community #gardening #growyourown #kidsgarden

Esther giving some side eye. Those are going to be big #birds perching on our shoulders… after losing BittyBaby, they just need to be close or they cry. I’m always surprised by how animals would take affection over food every time. Makes me feel honored to receive a #love like that. We’ve realized they won’t eat unless they can see us, which wasn’t a problem before losing their sister. Since we can’t carry their big pen, we put them in their smaller carry tub, and they go around the house with us. Then they eat and we get serenaded with #chick chirps. #goodmorning friends. May you #feelthelove of someone special today too. #winwin #chickensmakemehappy #chicken #chickensofinstagram #farmpets #farmlife #mypetchicken #fresheggsdaily #fresheggs #pets #petchickens #cute #chicks

These #houseplants also make great #shadeplants plants in the summer. They’re sensitive to frost, so they can only be planted out here the first week in June, but that #foliage brightens any dark corner of the yard. It’s finicky as a #houseplant and I’ve only had luck with it keeping it a glass vase inside its pot, out of direct sun. Have you started dreaming of summer sown color? #onwednesdayweplantpink #houseplantsofinstagram #plantsmakepeoplehappy #pinkplant #pinkplants #tropicalplants #pinkangel #fittonia #fittoniaalbivenis

Does your goat stretch on command? Henry does, but he’s the only one. Still, we’ll take it bc it’s such a good trick. Friends, is it #goatyoga if the #goat is doing the #yoga ? #goatsofinstagram #farmlifestyle #farmpets #gardening #gardenlife #petsofinstagram #petgoats #pets #animalrescue #goatyoga🐐 #animals #animalovers

Good morning, #monday You have snow! Looks like we’ll be working in the greenhouse today. We had to bring the #eggplants and #peppers in to the house last night, bc even 40 degrees F was #toocold for those #seedlings Wouldn’t you know, the peppers and #eggplant like the same temps the baby chicks like. I would try to do a cute take on #eggsandblooms but the #chicks are flying today, and the plants are fragile. Maybe I’ll get the courage to try when I’ve got more #helpinghands Until then, wake up friends, the #snowyeaster won’t last long! #ediblelandscaping #ediblegarden #monday #springiscoming #snowoneaster #startyourownseeds #growyourown #permaculture

We lost our sweet BittyBaby tonight, the tiny chick that needed help hatching. While we know logically that babies that can’t hatch or eat on their own have a very low chance of surviving, logic doesn’t speak to heartache… In memory of BittyBaby, just want to give a shout out to all of you who work in the field of #animalrescue , #veterinarymedicine or #belovedpets — we’re grateful for what you do bc you understand both the happiness and heartache and keep on loving anyway. We love you, BittyBaby. You stole our hearts with such a huge personality in the tiniest of chicks. #babychicks #farmlife #petchickens #petlovers #petloss #farmpets #flyhighbittybaby

#Succulents made it through our harsh winter planted in #cementblocks or #cinderblock with sandy #gardensoil So simple, but they love it. Because of the chemicals in cinderblocks, we don’t plant edibles in them, but as #succulentplanter — works perfectly. #containergardening #succulentsofinstagram #gardening #urbangardening #succulentsonly #plantsmakepeoplehappy #sunplant #sungarden #onwednesdayweplantpink

I just love my bitty baby chirps as it falls asleep!! Bitty baby hatched 2 days ago and had a few issues. We haven’t checked to see whether it is a Male or female yet so it’s name has been bitty baby🐥🤗❤ Bitty baby is getting stronger everyday and is the cutest little snuggly chick! #nofilter #petchickens #weirdthingschickenpeopledo #petchickens #hatchedchicks #hatched #babychicks #chickchirps #babychicknaptime
