My mornings are the best ❀ Yes my chickens come in for treats and snuggles. Growing up on a ranch in Montana made me an animal lover. I think back at how understanding my parents were letting my baby ducks and sheep sleep in bed with me. Hahaha the memories ❀❀ @livingfitn50 .

While at a friend's yesterday, she says "I& #39;ve got something for you...." . She reaches into her brooder, then tenderly places a tiny chick in my hand. It's no bigger than a spool of thread. It wobbles and falls, unable to stand. Both feet noticeably curled inward. It's caked in dry yolk. One eye fused shut. The other barely open. I can barely grasp what I'm looking at, before she follows up with pleading eyes and two words, " ....Fix it?" Unable to refuse, I take the baby.
This is a peaceful moment after carefully bathing and drying, cleaning it's eyes, feeding it Nutri-drench and electrolytes and taping it's feet in place. The baby next to it is a newly hatched Silkie. A small chick by it's own standards.
The little thing has made it through the night and is trying to eat crumble. We're calling her Grace because my friend is hoping it's a girl. And to get her back when she's good and strong. We need lots of well wishes on this one, for sure.

When you're spraying up your laydee with vinegar so her butt tastes bad and she's so SO good and she curls her toes up a little and you HAVE to wiggle your finger in them and you need to press her little feet pads and you can't help but wrinkle your nose 'cause she's so.damned.CUTE.

Ok. That's quite a specific situation but...just...so heart-burstingly cute.

Nancypantsypiepuff can be such an angel #stupidnewestnickname . I don't even care that she hates me and tried to judo-chop me when I was putting her back down, I think I love her so much a little bounces back.

When the chickens feathers get so coated in mud she can't lift her head all the way, it's time for a chicken bath. #chickensofinstagram #howtobatheyourchicken #pets

My guinea was being squished by one of my meat bird hens. #chickensofinstagram #why #farm

Taco & Belle are already back in our custody. The roosters were fighting and they were unwilling to try to resolve the issue. Thank goodness we got them back! This is why we're so hesitant to adopt out. πŸ’”
Thanks to everyone that came out to help capture tonight! These two, plus 3 more hens are now safe for the night.

Introducing Penang and nugget. My sons new chickens. They are only 2 weeks old😜 now I got to try keep these babies warm and alive. #chickensofinstagram

What a night in the chicken coop. I went to close them up and peeked into the back room where the setting hens are. Three were fighting over one nest. They were literally dragging each other off and being shoved over the side. The second nest had my good setter who keeps hatching chicks and passing them on to the nanny hen below when they get big enough to leave the nest. The fourth nest that I thought had been abandoned was occupied. And in the third nest... the one that had been previously occupied by the hen I suspect was in nest four... were seven, adorably tiny yet very loud, newly hatched chicks. They were cool enough to the touch I knew they had been alone a while. So, I decided to try to give them to my good setter until they got just a tad bigger. When I did, a chick that looked to be a couple days old popped his head out. Looking big enough to take a flying leap from the nesting box, I took him and gave him to the nanny hen. Of course, she scooped him right up. Now for the hard part. I figured if my good setter wouldn't take them, I would not only have a brooder full of peeping chicks in my closet to keep me awake, but I would have the arduous task of re introducing them to the flock when they got bigger. One by one I moved them over and one by one my good hen nudged and pecked at them until all seven were snug and cozy beneath her. Huge sigh of relief. I hope that encourages the abandoning hen to resume her spot and finish hatching the clutch. I can't wait to get a better look at them in a couple days. These were eggs from my mom's silkies. There are two gray chicks and a black. Neither are colors I have in my flock. #chickensofinstagram #babychicksofinstagram #chickenlivesmatter #marlerhomestead #imjustwingingit #punintended
