Flock Focus Friday, 1/17/14

This week’s photo essay from Blazing Trails Farm feels dark as most of the week has been snowy, rainy, foggy, grey and overall, blah. Thankfully the temperatures have been above freezing most of the time, which has given the roosters a chance to recover a bit from frostbite. Please enjoy the photos and your weekend!

When it snows, the chickens will come out of the coops if I shovel, only to pace back and forth between coops. Some exercise is better than no exercise I suppose.

What? Do I have something on my face? 
The fluffy white stuff was short-lived as torrential rain moved in and made a slushy mess of things.

Blaze chases Sparky a couple times a day to remind him who is in charge of the backyard.  They’re both Black Copper Marans. Blaze is Sparky’s dad.

Rainy eggs.

Blaze and the ladies.

Thanks for joining me and have a great week!

When we have raised chicks inside I always have a heat lamp clamped to the side of the "nursery" and it makes me very nervous that if someone was to jump onto it it could possibly fall into the cage. This product seems like a much safer way to keep those babies warm! I would love love love to win it!!!
