This past week featured typical New England weather: high heat, pouring rain, sunshine, fog and/or autumn temperatures on any given day. I’ve been preparing to bring the backyard chicken-keeping fight to my local Zoning Commission and will have a table at the town’s annual “Suffield on the Green” event. I hope to meet a few of my peeps there this weekend!
The public hearing is slated for September 16th and I encourage anyone in the tri-state area or beyond to join me at the meeting to be seen and/or heard in support of backyard chickens everywhere!
Freida (White Silkie) is the surrogate mom to these two Olive Egger chicks of Blaze’s.
Lola (Columbian Wyandotte) is experiencing her first molt. She’s dropping her feathers like a box of hot rocks, which is typical of a good layer.
Rachel (Bantam Cochin Frizzle) not looking her best between the rain, humidity and molt, her feathers don’t get much more pathetic looking than this.

Thanks for visiting today and have a great weekend!
