The Blizzard of 2015

Looking back at my photos from January I can’t believe how nutty it was: Doc Brown came down with a mystery illness that had me looking at her back for several days to determine whether she was still breathing. After days of hand feeding and prayer, she miraculously recovered. Blaze & Chevy got hit with frostbite which put them out of commission and in the basement Mancave where they remain with Doc until temperatures warm up. Mr. Chicken Chick and I had whirlwind weekend at the Northeastern Poultry Congress meeting so many of my amazing peeps, followed days later by a scheduled surgery that put me out of commission for a bit. Finally, we have been getting hammered with frigid temps and snow storms here in New England, including a certified blizzard last week and are now staring down the barrel of another couple of feet of snow tomorrow night! Whew! I’m exhausted just thinking about it all. I’m very much looking forward to a mostly boring February, please!

We are expanding our flock and our chicks would love to give the eco glow brooder a try!


So thankful Doc pulled through! Sounds like you need to heal as well 🙂
Happy blizzarding, keep warm!

I got 10 Double-laced Blue Barnvelders and 6 maran chicks at a local poultry auction this weekend. I also bought a dozen olive-egger hatching eggs. The brinsea would be the perfect addition to my brooder!!!

Planning to get my next flock additions in April and would love to win one of these… Keep up the good work and love the flow of pics. Glad Doc is doing better.
