Flock Focus Friday, 7/12/13

Keeping cool was the name of the game this week. Wild weather included 80% humidity, 90°+F temperatures, torrential rains and two, confirmed tornadoes in the area. Thankfully, we are no worse for the wear and the grass and flowers

These eggs will be blown out and sold for decorating. The eggs’ contents are a great source of protein & will be fed back to my peeps.

I think that that scale is soooo cute. But I can always use anything to give my girls. I just got 6 Buffs about 7 weeks old they are precious.

Those bags are so CUTE! I'd sure love to carry one of those around and see people's reactions!

I've just started feeding my hens the Ultra egg. I bore countless friends on the boost in Omega-3s in each egg as a result. I think they only smile and nod out of politeness.
