Flock Focus Friday, 2/21/14

Please join me in welcoming my new sponsor, Avian Aqua Miser! Mark Hamilton and Anna Hess are the husband-wife team behind this mom-and-pop company. Their adventures in homesteading on their Virginia farm led them to develop a system for delivering clean water to their own flock that has evolved into a line of affordable chicken waterers available to yours. I am delighted to bring them on board as a sponsor and to introduce you to their line of poop-free chicken waterers.
My chicken village
See all of this pretty snow that fell this week? It couldn’t last forever and now it’s a big, watery mess that has kept me busy bailing out the basement and around the coops all day.

Too many people are walking around unmedicated, unsupervised and affecting my life.

Your coffee is calling!
Somebody get my travel agent on the phone. Seriously. I'm SO OVER this!
Coffee, a hug in a mug.
