Can Chickens Recognize Each Other?

Have you ever wondered if your chickens recognize you? Or can recognize other flocks members? It turns out that they can. Have you ever wondered whether or not your chickens recognize each other?

Top 12+ Common Myths about Eggs that Simply Aren't True

It's time to finally debunk these common myths about eggs that simply aren't true, for once and for all. Eggs are one of the best, and most affordable, sources of complete protein there is. They are packed with vitamins and nutrients, including Vitamin D and lutein.   Eggs are so versatile, called for in scads of recipes , both sweet and savory, and are quick to cook up. 

Apple Cider Vinegar and Garlic for Chickens

If you do nothing else besides feed your chickens, fill their waterers and collect their eggs, adding these two things to their water will reap you tremendous health benefits for your flock. I firmly believe in an ounce of prevention. In fact, wasn't it Benjamin Franklin who said "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"? He was a smart man - and I bet he wasn't even talking about chickens!

Rustic Fresh Peach Pie

When peaches are in season, this pie is an easy way to highlight their fresh sweetness.  I love to bake almost anything, but I think if I had to choose, then I would say that pies are my favorite thing to bake. Blueberry , apple , strawberry rhubarb - whatever fruit is in season, that's the kind of pie I'll bake. So imagine my delight when on a whim I stopped at a little roadside produce stand not far from our house and discovered fresh local peaches! Sun-ripened in the nearby orchard. They were decidedly smaller than ordinary peaches, but after purchasing almost 3 pounds in a brown shopping bag for the unbelievable price of just $2/pound, and sinking my teeth into one of the soft, fuzzy balls on the way home, I realized that I needed to make a peach pie to do them justice. I used my go-to Pate Brisee recipe which is a simple pie crust that whips up in no time in your food processor, and added just enough sugar to the peaches to accentuate their natural sweetness.  A dash of s

Homemade Boot Tree Stand

Make this homemade boot tree stand to keep your muck boots organized and neat. Basic bio-security to prevent the spread of salmonella, Escherichia coli (E. coli), staph, and other pathogens is critical when you raise backyard chickens.

How to Identify Common Chicken Predators

Small Universal Carboy Bung- Solid

Raspberry White Chocolate Ice Cream

Fresh raspberries and white chocolate turn vanilla ice cream from plain to yum! I've read that  New Englanders eat more ice cream  than the rest of the country, and Massachusetts leads the pack, which is odd since it's cold there for so much of the year, but I can say as a kid growing up in the state, I remember going for ice cream all the time in the summer.

How To Get Better Tasting Eggs from your Chickens
