The hens are using the tire for a dust bath while the chicks cautiously look around the yard. This was the beginning of the summer heat and I had to do a little prep which will be much grander as the summer progresses. Had a couple humorous moments with the chicks... Popcorn is a bit silly!

This is a cute compilation of moments with Miss Cloud the last few months. She's at the top of the pecking order and can sometimes be so cute that I forget she can also be a real bitich. Enjoy!

The chicks are in their own coop and the hens aren't entirely sure about it. This is a quick update on the hens and a look at their reaction to the chicks being outside with them same yard... what the heck.

I'm a big fat meany! Or just oblivious to what's right in front of my face. A full rainbow blesses the sky and it's followed by a storm! Miss Cloud narrates everyone else laying eggs and we finally end up in the compost bin. #Chickens #Humor #BackyardChickens #RaisingChickens

New Coop Anxieties - Check My Sanity20:30
New Coop Anxieties - Check My Sanity
1 month ago

I'm sure someone will watch this video and just laugh! The new coop is in and the hens are spending a few days getting used to the idea of it. What am I doing? Pulling my hair out and worrying about things. I'm sure this video portrays one of the reasons some chicken owners check their flock in the morning and then again at night... nothing in between.

New Chicken Coop Placement22:57
New Chicken Coop Placement
1 month ago

We prepped the land in order to move the old coop and then prepped the land for the new coop just prior to it arriving. We ordered this from a local builder and he did an awesome job! We asked for a few modifications to the original plans and he was great at making adjustments for me. I love the color of the coop and the whole design!

Chickens love hairy vetch and I had to edit out the dozens of times I said that in the 3-4 weeks this one video covers. The stuff is great, for sure, but I got a little cray-cray with it. Music by License code: W2QRFYRXIRLEOYUM Music: Happy Rock #Chickens #Humor #BackyardChickens #RaisingChickens

Spring Preparation with My Chickens15:29
Spring Preparation with My Chickens
2 months ago

The month of April brings planting veggies, watching weeds take over, and moving compost piles. We lowered the perch we created last month so the hens will get on it. I've had seagulls flying overhead and no idea why. Added the shade cloth to the kennel again to prepare for the heat. The hens found a bug they won't eat and a woodpecker won't stop pecking. I even spend time in front of the camera. Music by: License code: L0DNNXO63LJDBHHB Happy Rock #Chickens #Humor #BackyardChickens #RaisingChickens #Trinity #ParkourChick #Phoenix #MissCloud

This video is all about the month of March! Looked at a used chicken coop this month and it was very, very dirty. Poop all over the roof and entire coop with a messed up deep litter issue. Later on I ordered a coop to be made by a local builder... super excited to get it! I'm working on getting us caught up on all of the hours of chicken film footage I happen to have. The goal is to have videos with the hens and new chicks combined. Cheers to trying to catch up!

Here is my final video showcasing the hens at the end of 2022. I am trying to catch up to a more present-day format and it's been a long journey to get to that goal. This video contains a little poetry and an ending saying thanks! 3AM Poem Awake and wandering, enjoying the silence, mixed with the sound of snow crunching under feet. ~Phenix JiRa~ Hundreds of years from now, archeologists will turn to the small video maker and say to themselves... "Wow, people were a little off their rocker!". Music by License code: JETWMRABWAFGTM2H Straight #Chickens #Humor #BackyardChickens #RaisingChickens #Trinity #ParkourChick #Phoenix #MissCloud

In this winter video of the four hens I talk a bit about soaked oats and get surprised by Miss Cloud hopping on my lap. It's dang cold so they sit on their feet a lot.

It's week 62 and 63. I find that I'm not filming quite as much during the cold days. Still trying to catch up to present day but it's harder than one might think. Added cardboard to the inside ceiling of the coop to help with heat retention. Training chickens!

Time with Chickens09:16
Time with Chickens

I cleaned the coop and spent some time with the hens who apparently think my chair is their chair. Also spent a bit of time with Miss Cloud while the other hens were off doing something else. She got to eat a nice treat we found under a stump. Music I Use: License code: VWOIYX99Z9NDL9SM #Chickens #Humor #BackyardChickens #RaisingChickens #Trinity #ParkourChick #Phoenix #MissCloud

More Coop Modification & Neurotic Trinity09:56
More Coop Modification & Neurotic Trinity
3 months ago

Today we did the easiest coop modification ever! We added a wooden lock to the vent cover to prevent excessive cold from the winter winds. The hens couldn't get enough of Michael today... guess they thought he had food. I set up a few plant tubs to use as compost bins close to the coop. This is just an experiment to see if they will entertain the chickens during the winter.

Here's another chicken tv video for all to enjoy. The hens spend time picking on me, sunbathing, scratching in the compost, and investigating the yard. Music by: License code: HGA28I4GXNIGOMYH #Chickens #Humor #BackyardChickens #RaisingChickens #Trinity #ParkourChick #Phoenix #MissCloud

Winterizing My Chicken Run12:57
Winterizing My Chicken Run
3 months ago

It's that time of year when winterizing for chickens becomes important. Added plastic to parts of the kennel and coop/run to keep the rain out and the wind off the chickens. Michael shows up to help me by removing the gutters and adding 2x4s and doing a lot of stapling. Using a heavy duty, clear shower curtain (which worked great).

Kissing Chickens and a White Egg05:14
Kissing Chickens and a White Egg
3 months ago

Just a short video showcasing a day in the life of my flock. They like the seed packet that I've grown and love scratching around for goodies. Fall colors, drinking from the side of a pool, and a very light colored egg for Trinity or Parkour Chick. Not sure how they did it but I have a white egg. Then I sit back and watch them eat and clean each other's beaks. It can be fulfilling watching them.

Singing to Chickens | Oh, Trinity!05:12
Singing to Chickens | Oh, Trinity!
4 months ago

This was one of those days when I was so at peace that I simply started singing to Trinity. Try not to judge my singing voice too harshly LOL! It was just for me but I figured... what the heck... let everyone benefit from it. Ha! Lyrics I made up as I went along... with a bit of help from existing songs. ;-) Song to Chickens... Singing a song to chickens all day long. They seem to love me, but I don’t know. Is it really love or perhaps just a phase? You’re near me little Trinity, yes you are. Oh, Trinity, my little Trinity. Eating the grass and ignoring me. Would you like some tea? Some for me and some for you? Some for you and some for me… what do you say little Trinity? Here she comes just a walk’n down the street. Singing doo a diddy diddy dum diddy do. Is there a song you want me to sing? Sing, sing, sing… sing a song, sing outload, sing out strong. See you later Trinity. Oh, Trinity, oh Trinity. Why are you so mean to me? You simply do not like me. What are you doing to me? Oh Trinity, oh Trinity. You are so perfect to me. Why are you singing these songs Jira? You’re really not all that good at it. Because I feel like doing something different. Parkour Chick you are so hungry. Trinity, oh Trinity. You ignore me so much Trinity. I gotta chicken butt in my face, it’s not very pleasant, it’s a disgrace. Who is this? Oh phoenix. If I try to touch you, you’ll run away. Here I come to touch you, oh my goodness run away. Eating some grass… it smells like… and we don’t like it anyway, Oh Trinity, oh Trinity, why are you ignoring me? Don’t turn your back on me, don’t walk away and leave me here. Oh Trinity, oh Trinity, you’re getting further and further away from me. Created and Sung by Phenix JiRa #Chickens #Humor #BackyardChickens #RaisingChickens #Trinity #ParkourChick #Phoenix #MissCloud
