Flock Focus Friday, 7/5/13

These brothers are Marans- mom is a Wheaten Marans & dad, Blaze, is a Black Copper  Marans
Brutus (Mille Fleur Serama) and Lyla (Icelandic) have an affinity for our Burning Bush shrubs on the property line.
My peeps are never far from my thoughts, even on vacation.
Rachel (Bantam Cochin Frizzle) looking very Cochin-ish in this photo. She usually looks more…Sea Urchin-shaped.
My feed sack potatoes are beginning to take over the backyard. They’re ginormous!
I have a coop full of broodies as the temperatures are at their highest this summer. This Buff Orpington did not appreciate the paparazzi.
For the first time ever, I set up a live-stream from the backyard to share my view with you. If you missed it live, you can still catch the live recording, here.
Blaze (Black Copper Marans rooster) is doing much better since his hospitalization. He is back in the flock,
his crow has returned in full force & he’s working on putting weight back on and opening his left eye all the way. ♥
Ariel (Black Copper Marans hen)
My little one, helping collect eggs. The green eggs are from my Olive Eggers & the brown is from my Black Copper Marans hen.
Irene (Welsummer)
My coop flower box is filling in nicely.
Penny is an Olive Egger.
Ally McBeak (Tolbunt Polish Frizzle)
Doc Brown (White Crested Black Polish) and Irene (Welsummer) were enjoying some frozen fruit yesterday to keep cool during the heat wave we’re having here in New England.

Hi Kathy =) How old is Ariel; your BCM? I have an almost 1 yr old BCM, Stella; but she doesn't have that pretty gold ticking on her breast. She has some copper on her neck hackle; but mostly she's a pretty beetle green sheen black.
