Flock Focus Friday 2/20/15

winter chicken coops in Connecticut
Unrelenting, brutal cold and snow have been the name of the game here in New England the past month and there is no relief in sight. Nobody doubts the local meteorologist who said today that this has been the coldest month in Connecticut history. The weather is to blame for cabin fever in the chicken coops, but lots of exciting things are unfolding inside as we await some relief from the cold.

We welcomed a new member into our flock family just in time for my birthday this week: Milo, a 3 month old Yorkshire Terrier with an impressive pedigree, was escorted from South Carolina by his breeder to New York City, a short car ride from his forever home here in Connecticut! He walked into the house like he owned the joint and stole all of our hearts with his affectionate, playful personality. Please enjoy some of the photos taken since the last Flock Focus Friday!

I haven't had my coffee yet. Now would be a good time to back up and walk away.
The cold never bothered me anyway. FALSE. I hate winter.
Warning: Caffeine deprived & dangerous when provoked. Proceed at your own risk.
Coffee saves lives- just ask my family.
Someone get my agent on the phone. Frigid is NOT in my contract.
It's a real shame that you can't drink coffee and sleep at the same time.
Coffee: Prepare to meet your maker.
I like to think my coffee needs me too.

No the hens are 10 months old and 1 that’s 2 yrs old. They do lay eggs, although right now some of them are molting. I have 2 Mil de Flores(sorry about spelling) that I keep separate. I hen has a twisted beak but she can hang with the other hen and keep her own.
Do you have any ideas about how to help my twisted beak hen?
Thanks for the reply.

I would love to win anything for my chickens and love to read about you and yours. But, why do you make it so hard to enter the giveaways?


It would be like Christmas all over again for my flock. Mealworms are like candy in our coops. Love your blogs!
