Flock Focus Friday, 5/8/15

What a fantastic week it has been! All kinds of great goings-on, including buds opening on flowers and trees, temps in the eighties, new sponsors and opportunities knocking, justice doing its thing for the good guys and Blaze’s chicks hatching by the dozen! I’ll keep you updated on all of the above in due time.  Please enjoy some of the photos taken in my chicken yard this week and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms who have done or are doing The most important job in the world, bar none.

The flock celebrates its matriarch, Freida, as Mother Hen of the Year for 6 consecutive years!

Have a question about chicken breeds. Have always had heritage breeds, barnevelders, Brahmas, and Brown leghorns. I now have a small flock of 4 very friendly rescue chickens (all ISA browns). They seem much lighter then my other girls have been in the past. Is this normal? Are they such a lighter chicken? They lay well, are fully wormed, and seem generally very content. Any thoughts…??

These are already committed. Depending on where you live, I got my chickies from a lady just east of Lee, Maine. She advertises in Uncle Henry’s.

I would love one. I have some heritage chickens I would love to breed.

Didn’t know where to ask. But, how can I introduce newly hatched chicks to month old chicks?
