Oh happy day 🐔♥️☀️.

The #chickens have been experiencing their first taste of freedom! They #love it so much - and we love watching them romp around. 😊🐓 We have to be fast in the AM if we want to keep the penned because they’ll run straight towards the door! 😂.

Check out @realhensofoc most recent blog post comparing chicken watering systems including @dineachook drinkers and how they differ from other similar looking drinkers .

Some of the many questions I get about chicken-keeping concerns watering and feeding. So, I wrote a Flock U post just to talk about watering system for your feather babies. Link .https://realhensofoc.wordpress.com/2018/08/20/flock-u-watering-your-chickens/

In this photo, Penny (French black copper Marans) and Harpo (black jersey giant) are quenching their thirst at their new watering station with @dineachook’s 4 liter (1 gallon) twin cup drinker. Harpo is a bit bare in the back from being over-mated by Uno, so she’s sporting a stylish chicken saddle from @theurbanroo.

Wait for it..Everyone likes blackberries on the farm. I've watched the chickens, rabbits and squirrels all nibble on the tasty fruit. 💕

Today I picked up my first CSA box from @goodfoodfarmers 👨🏻‍🌾
_
It was so convenient because @brooklynboulders is one of their pick up locations
_
So far I’ve tried the tomatoes, onions, lettuce, micro greens, sweet peppers, and shishito peppers and everything tasted SO FRESH AND YUMMY 🤤
_
ugh since I’ve moved to the city I find produce from grocery stores tastes dead and goes bad in a few days but this stuff tasted like it was full of life 🔆

#sharingiscaring LOL.. my #backyarddinosaurs are enjoying my apple with me. @sandyshoresfarm

What's your opinion about eggs?
First let me say this isn't a lecture about vegetarianism or animal rights. I just want you to have some info about the quality of your eggs.
We know eggs have essential vitamins and proteins, but is there really a difference in Farm fresh eggs that are pasture raised and your local grocery store eggs?
Well, actually, studies don't really show a difference in taste. The eggs we get are fresh, sometimes even comimg home the same day that they are collected versus store bought eggs take between 1-3 days to reach the store and can sit for up to 30 days before purchase. So, perhaps the improved taste difference that I notice is from freshness.

The real benefits come from nutritional value. Free range eggs have
Less cholesterol
Less saturated fat
Increased vitamin A, E and D
More beta carotene
Pasture raised eggs are regarded as one of the best food sources of vitamin D!

And how do you feel about how the chickens are treated? Sadly, I think most people don't care where their food comes from, but I like knowing our eggs are humanely produced. Most commercial industry egg farms keep chickens in small cages their entire lives. Even "cage-free" are usually produced in a warehouse with hundreds of chickens crammed together with little natural light or fresh feed.
NO carton designation including "free range", "pasture raised" or even "USDA certified organic" can guarantee the eggs didn't come from mistreated birds.
Chickens are healthier when able to forage and act like normal chickens. So, I said this wasn't about animal rights. It isn't. What you should know though is that poor living conditions greatly increases the risk of disease like salmonella, making the backyard eggs safer to eat.
So, they're safer.
They're fresher.
And chickens that are allowed to roam, forage, eat fresh feed and bugs and act like chickens produce better quality eggs under less stress. So, I would say they're better quality.
And one last thing. Did you know they cook differently? I can't day that I did bc I don't do much baking. But the increased nutritional value results in fuller yolks and the egg whites are stiffer and hold together better.
Eggs 101.

154 eggs

Katie added up all the fresh eggs we have in our kitchen right now.
We have 40+ chickens & roosters. ....Need eggs? 🎵”Freeeeee egggggggsssss!!”

Also, apologies to local friends who I may be chasing after to take more eggs 🤪

Call me old fashioned but I still don’t like change. #edit #barnumsanimals #politicallycorrect cartoon animals are free. #peta the animals appear happy and no longer oppressed. Now only if we can train children not to eat wild animals we can achieve world domination. #vegancookies #freerange #befreeanimals

Who said cats are assholes? Our inter-species cousin Ricky the Bantam chicken is a bigger asshole! #bantambreeds #chicken #catfood #freerange #cousin #catsofinstagram
