Flock Focus Friday, 8/30/13

The weathervane just isn’t the same without Brutus, but life goes on and we welcomed a few new flock members to Blazing Trails Farm this week.


Freida (White Silkie) is never happier than when she is raising chicks. Freida with two Olive Egger chicks.
Vera (Red Sex Link) workin’ the camera as only she can.

Egg production is still excellent even while the girlz molt, but soon the shorter days of autumn will affect it and supplemental lighting in the coops will continue to stimulate the hormones that trigger egg-laying just as the sun does.

Portia (Serama)
I don’t know how many times I have already killed this hibiscus on our front porch,  but thankfully, it has more than a few lives.
Doc Brown (White Crested Black Polish hen) and Blaze (Black Copper Marans)  making their entrance into the grow-out coop. 

By popular demand, I have made my Spruce the Coop Herbal Fusion available for sale on Etsy and in my webstore. Instructions for making it can be found here.

My Partridge Plymouth Rock pullets just began egg-laying and while they aren’t molting this year, they did enjoy the Molt Muffins that I made for the flockers who are molting, like Rachel, below (Bantam Cochin Frizzle).

Calista Flockheart (Tolbunt Polish Frizzle)
Lola (Columbian Wyandotte)
Brutus was a Mille Fleur Serama. This was one of his baby pictures. ♥

Enjoy the rest of your Friday and have a great weekend!

Wow so need this! Mice are getting bigger and bigger . Scary big. They are enjoying way to much chicken feed as well as the sparrows they seem to find their way in every pen. Ugh !
