Check Out my New Instagram Profile!


If you're like me, Instagram is one of your favorite social media outlets. I love to see the pictures of people's lives and flocks. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and that's what I get each time I visit Instagram.

Recently, Instagram made a change where you can add your stories to your profile. You may have seen these cool circles and wondered what they do.

Each Instagram page handles these differently. On my page, I think these profile stories are a quick and fun way for you to get to know me and my flock better. Check out my new profile stories below and be sure to look for new stories as they are added in the future.


Breed Spotlight at a Glance - This quick and informative story features a favorite breed and basic facts in case this is a breed you'd like to add to your own flock. More breeds will be added, so stay tuned!

Video Fun - I love sharing the antics and daily life of my flock through videos. Be sure to check back often for new flock flicks.

On the Blog - Don't miss out on new stories and information to keep your flock happy and healthy.

On the Farm - We don't just have chickens here at Elm Ridge Farm. Share other adventures through gardening, herbs, wildlife, pets and more!






As the editor of Backyard Poultry magazine, one of my favorite tasks is to share fun pictures each day from our readers. Now, through profile stories, I enjoy sharing the many other resources Backyard Poultry has to offer.

These profile stories all link to pages on our website where you can get the information you need. Subscribe so you never miss an issue, read our daily stories, sign up for our free guides, and shop for all things poultry and homesteading.

It's all right there and easy to access!






If you have an Instagram account of your own, using the profile stories option is easy and fun. To start, I did quite a bit of research, but my favorite tutorial is from Social Media Examiner


The options for profile stories are endless. Just remember, there is a difference in the flexibility of your profile stories based on your number of followers. If you have 10,000 or more followers, you can link your stories making them clickable.


If you use Instagram stories and have tips to share, or if you have some things you'd like to see on my profile or Backyard Poultry's, please let me know in the comments below. 

Have fun!
