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.

Kathy, may I ask where you got your Tolbunt Polish frizzles from? It seems there are not many places out there to purchase them. Also I read they are not cold hardy, but that is pretty vague…I live in Utah, zone 7b. That could be a world of difference from the cold winters back east, as we don't have the humidity factor. Do you have any advice? I fell in love with your Calista and Ally and now want to expand my little flock.


I absolutely love your blog. It's become a must read for me everyday. The articles are so helpful especially for newbies like myself, not to mention how entertaining they are. I really enjoy your pics. You have a beautiful flock and a nice yard, I love look at them.
The drawings are really cool too, it would be awesome to win but I'm a fan either way!


I absolutely love your blog. The articles are always nice, and your pics are so much fun to look at! As a newbie I learned so much from you, and the giveaways are fun too! I would live to win the feeder, but I'm a fan anyway.


My crew of 13 fluffy babies would love that feeder!


Love the Grandpa feeder too. Wondering if they considered a little smaller one for a smaller flock or even inside the coop?
