This blog covers a lot of chickens keeping topics! I like to try to cover all aspects of raising chickens from the difficult to the easy. So many things can happen when raising chickens from baby chicks to adults. There are coop issues, health problems, things to build and buy and chicken predators to deal with. I write about it ALL! Well, I write about everything that happens here on my chicken farm! I won't write about things I haven't experienced. Who would?

Raising chickens, rooster picture

This year was even busier than last year on the blog! I wrote 40 new posts, took what felt like thousands of pictures, made a bunch of new videos and pulled in 1.4 million page views!

That's a lot of views!

Other interesting things happened this year. I had a rooster picture stolen and used in a meme, and a picture of my white frizzle hen stolen and used in a dress comparison. So if you saw those...that was not me. The internet sure can can be like the wild west sometimes! 

Here on the farm I slowed down on chick hatching since I was so busy writing. I also had a fox problem that took out a few chickens and ducks. I didn't bother to replace the chickens yet. He got my two oldest hens, Sally who was 10 years old and Serabelle who was about 8. That put a hold on free ranging for a few months! 

I made a lot more crafts with chicken feathers and eggs, but those didn't get viewed a lot so I'm thinking they're only interesting to me! lol
