I have 10 fluffy-butters and I enjoy their “pantaloons.” We have a light Brahma who has fuzzy feet. We call her “Fuzzy Fur Feet.” She has these massive pantaloons that stick out when she bends over. It’s so cute. You can look out and see 10 fluffy, fuzzy butts sticking up in the air as they merrily dig and route in their yard.

Even roos to keep the ladies happy. Out of 17 girls, we have anywhere from 4-8 laying… Mt Ameracaunas are outright refusing to lay eggs for me, I may get one or two a day. They also don’t like laying them in a nice nest, they just let them fall out while they are running around, or at least they MUST! My Buff’s now, they lay in the nest, and like to hang out in the nests all day! Crazy chickens. I think I have an addiction problem to fuzzy butts too. I want to hatch more, I want to buy more kinds…. MORE, MORE, MORE!!!

From my farm friends, apparently chickens don’t lay many eggs when it’s cold. I’m sure there is a joke in there somewhere, but too early on a Monday for me to pull one out.

We’ve got 8 girls and one beautiful rooster but if we’re lucky we get up to 3 eggs…once in a while…none. It won’t be long until the others start laying..I hope… but at least for now we’re getting enough to use for ourselves so I guess I shouldn’t complain. Next time I order chickens (soon) I’m going to get some that don’t mind the cold! On January 25, 2010 at 8:49 am Log in to Reply rain says: miss my fluffy chicken butts !! Rain On January 25, 2010 at 9:31 am Log in to Reply Angel Pierce says: My perfect day is …watching my hobby farm animals being hobby farm animals…. goats grazinging on yummy grasses in the summer, chickens scratching in the fresh dirt after the rain. A small barn filled with aromatic hay for the winter. Knowing all will be safe and warm. All of these make me so happy and grateful for a life filled with blessings all around!

They are cute little female busybodies. Seems they need little aprons or something while they scratch, eat, and gossip.

I am a spinner and a knitter (started out with crochet many years ago) so am eagerly awaiting the addition of some FLUFF talk related to the sheepies.

Like my four slackers….cackling at me, begging for scratch, apples, etc. and no eggs in return. My Girrl says patience, mom, they need time to recover. lolol On January 25, 2010 at 5:45 pm Log in to Reply Cheryl says: I can really identify with Sarah! Looking at poultry catalogs is like looking at seed catalogs. I want some of everything!
