Our Chicken Adventures and Videos! Scroll down to take a tour of the Daisy and our Backyard Chickens!
As I have cared for chickens, I have learned there are a lot of similarities between myself and my hens. I know it sounds funny to compare myself with a chicken...but the same things that stress them out, also stress me out. I like a home that is clean and has enough usable space, I don't like being chased by dogs and I love keeping my little chicks (my children) under my wing! I cheer my friends on when they have a baby and I love being outside in the garden. Ha Ha!
Video Tour of the Daisy
Hooray! Doors open all the way for easy cleaning! I love this feature! The roosting boxes keep coop cleaner, they catch the manure as the hens sit on the roosting bars.
The Daisy with a "door within the back door." This is a great idea if you want the option of letting the hens out front or back. The Chicken Run will also fit on the front or back of the coop!
Here is a custom Daisy coop we built for a customer. They chose to have it look exactly like ours.
Shadow and Butterball going into the hen house to lay their egg! These are some of our Black and Golden Sex-Link hens. They are great little layers!
Penny, our little Rhode Island Red, in the nest box.
We put a golf ball in the nest to inspire the girls to lay here. This is one of the six nests. The girls just started laying in this photo so eggs will continue to get bigger.
The eggs for the day...yum! We got 12 out of 12 this time and one double yolk-er! Notice how clean they are, these are freshly gathered right from the coop! The floor stays clean because of our roosting boxes so hens cannot track manure into the nests.
The egg on the right is a double yolk-er! We get one from three different hens
We had a hawk in our yard this day!
Scratching for bugs
Speckles eating the grass...the hens LOVE it!
Our hen, Sugar, went broody. We put some fertile eggs under her and look!
