Backyard Chickens are back at Swash Manor 2017

May 10, 2017 - Backyard Chickens

It’s 2017 and we have our newest group of back yard chickens, got them free off Craigslist, some apartments dweller realized that 6 chickens grow up, and are not fluffy yellow balls forever.

Hen Manor

Our main chicken house, the herbs that are drying are for the nesting boxes, mints,  chamomile, sage, cat nip, rosemary, bee balm, and lemon grass, it keeps the box fresh, and acts as a repellent against insects and pest.

And here are the girls we hope, but I’m afraid we got a rooster or two……you know what Granddaddy Kemp Tyler said,  the best way to stop a rooster from crowing , is to put on a pot of rice!

The Girls


Our dog Ninja loves them thinks they are her babies…
