Hey there, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Noelle Moser and I am a Backyard Chicken Keeper. I currently have 7 coops and about 50 girls give or take a few.  The girls that you see in these posts are of several breeds. I have both standard and bantam or minature/ornamental breeds. To meet the Backyard Divas, visit the page entitled “Meet the Flock!”.


The purpose of this blog is to share with others the joys of keeping backyard chickens. Many people are staring to care for chickens in their backyard, both in the country and the city. Chickens are fairly easy to take care of and for the most part less expensive than a large dog. They do however take daily care and maintenance which consists of making sure they have fresh feed, water, and a clean coop. They are fairly simple creatures that do not require much but give back much in return.

In this blog I will share with my readers how I put them to work in my gardens all the while keeping them happy and healthy. How I use their natural abilities to keep them busy and engaged. I will also share many stores of the funny things they do and the many humorous things that they get themselves into. You see chickens are very funny creatures, they are entertainment to the max, and the best part is, its free! I spend many evening in my backyard working, watching, and laughing at their antics. I will also provide some tips and hacks that I discover through the course of my time with them.

I hope that the stories and information that I share will help brighten your day or even help others as they begin their own backyard adventure.

Welcome to the Coop!! The girls and I are glad that you are here. Enjoy!

      Hi, I live in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. Guess you could say that I am mountain backyard chicken keeper. Where are you from? Your blog looks really interesting, I love to garden as well. Although I tend to take to indoor gardening a bit more, especially during the winter. Do you do many posts on houseplants and such? Your photos are amazing and all your plants so beautiful. I wish I could have elaborate gardens like what you maintain but I am afraid that my chickens would eat them all. So I usually stick to container and indoor gardening.

        I live on 40 acres in Windsor, Missouri. I do post about house plants and many of the pages listed on the right side of the blog (500 +/-) are considered house plants. All my potted plants that are outside in the summer come inside for the winter. Right now my house looks like a plant store. I have a lot of cactus and succulents and this and that. Whatever catches my eye and wants to come home. We have four local greenhouses so there is always something. I enjoy the flower beds in the summer but I haven’t had a vegetable garden for two years.

        Poultry raising is kind of in my blood and I started at a very young age. My parents rased chickens and gardened when I was a kid and I just followed. My grandparents had all types of poultry and large gardens. I am currently living on my grandparents farm which my parents moved to. I worked in the hatchery business and we shipped over 40 varieties of chickens nationwide. So, I have a lot of history with many breeds and most types of poultry. I currently have a few Delawares, black sex-link, White Chantecler, and B.B. Red Old English Game Bantams. My chickens have to stay inside unless I can watch them because we have foxes and occasionally the neighbors dog comes for a visit.

        Glad to meet you and thanks for your nice comments about my blog. I am looking forward to reading your new posts and maybe catching up on your previous posts as well.

        Your house sounds so nice with all the plants inside. I too keep an indoor garden of houseplants. I cannot live unless I have something green growing around me. My friends refer to my house as the jungle due to all the tropical plants I have round the place.

        Working in a hatchery sounds so exciting. I thing that is a job that I would love to do. So, yea you have lots of experience with chickens. I’m not sure if my blog would actually teach you anything. Its probably the other way around, you could probably teach me. Your flock sounds nice, you have some really pretty breeds. Game chickens are so pretty especially the roosters.

        I would love to have the land that you have. I could have so many chickens on 40 acers 🙂 Not sure my hubby would allow that many but I could try.

        I am going to check out your posts on indoor plants. I am so glad that I know someone who has experience with indoor plants. I have had questions in the past but had no one to ask. I may have to pick your brain if I have another situation arise.

        It’s so nice to meet you. I look forward to reading your posts.
