Flock Focus Friday, 11/1/13

There is no prettier time of year in New England than autumn and as the last of the colorful leaves fell from the trees this week, we said goodbye to the amazing color palate until next year.

Rachel, my Bantam Cochin Frizzle, finally emerged from her molt. Her feathers are more vibrant than ever!
Calista Flockheart, (Tolbunt Polish Frizzle) one of my Partridge Plymouth Rock pullets & Blaze (Black Copper Marans rooster).
Freida (White Silkie hen)
Windy (Blue Splash Marans)
Blaze.
Calista Flockheart and Ally McBeak (on roost) both Tolbunt Polish Frizzles.

Iris, (Olive Egger pullet) in her first experience as a broody hen, adopted a variety of chicks that I hatched in the incubator and slipped underneath her after dark. The ten chicks are either Black Copper Marans or Olive Eggers.

Kate (Speckled Sussex hen) enjoys a dust bath in the run with some friends as I spied on her through the pop door.

White Crested Black Polish chick and Spartacus (Mille Fleur Serama crossed with Red Sex link) who is Brutus’ son.
Jerry Seinfeld (White Crested Black Polish Frizzle)
Spartacus.
Sparky (Black Copper Marans cockerel) has found his voice recently and is a chip off the ol’ block. He sounds very much like his dad, Blaze. ♥
Chick-or-treat!
Thanks for joining me and have a great weekend!

As I get ready for a mass movement of my 23 hen & 5 Roo flock I'm finding myself here searching your blog even more than usual to get the best set-up I can in place at the new farm. Have you got any suggestions for the best way to move my kids to reduce the amount of stress they will have to go through?
