It's never a dull moment in the yard of the urban chicken keeper. As I've become obsessed with all things poultry, I've been amazed at what little reliable information is available about keeping chickens, so my goal is to share the real account of a small backyard flock and the characteristics of my beautiful girls: a Buff Brahma, an Iowa Blue, a Plymouth Rock, a Splash Marans, two Buff Orpingtons and two Ameraucanas.

Here a Bath, There a Bath...
Here are two of our girls taking a dust bath this afternoon. They are quite happy to have access to the former Maternity Ward.
