This week was busy as I worked on finishing up two magazine articles, but it was a bit of a challenge with one of my girls (human child, that is) home sick. She’s fine, but I’m a little bit behind. Such is the life of a self-employed, work-from-home mom. :)

Blaze (Black Copper Marans rooster) is a very involved dad to his gaggle of babies and now spends a good portion of his day chasing his son, Sparky, away from the ladies.

The feathered babies worked on getting bigger and with unusually mild temperatures for November in New England, they got to spend quite a bit of time outside, learning the foraging ropes from their moms.

Iris’ chicks are getting big, this little Black Copper Marans chick was practicing its roosting skills.

Iris (Olive Egger hen) and the Littles (Black Copper Marans or Olive Egger chicks) enjoy the mild temps as papa Blaze keeps a close eye on the yard.

This week’s unpredictable weather provided ample opportunities for some colorful photos.

Thanks for joining me and have a great weekend!
