Free-Range Chickens…

Our chickens have the run-of-the-house so to speak.  They can go anywhere on our farm and even off our farm if they chose to.  Luckily, the road and the neighbor’s fields haven’t occurred to them yet.

Our banties are generally our most mobile.  They would rather forage than eat dumb ol’ chicken feed any day.

A few Rhode Islands have made their way into the bantie coop, so the little blonde chickens are rubbing off on the red heads.

They just work and work…and throw mulch everywhere all day long.

Let the destruction continue. 

We may not have mulch around our blueberry bushes, apricot bushes, etc. but at least there shouldn’t be a bug to be seen either.

    I still think that the banties are cute.

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
