Flock Focus Friday, 8/15/14 with a Chicken Fountain GIVEAWAY!

Blaze, my Black Copper Marans rooster
This installment of Flock Focus Friday is brought to you on Tuesday because after announcing on my Facebook page that my town is suing me for the removal of my chickens, the media got wind of it and have been bogged down with interviews and inquiries ever since. While I am happy to finally get the word out, it has been a time drain. 
Here's the scoop in case you missed it on Facebook last week:
My town has sued me for the removal of chickens from my backyard & while I am confident in my legal strategy, this 5 year battle fueled by my neighbor has become extremely costly. If I have helped you keep chickens or given you a reason to smile on occasion, please consider a donation of any size to "Operation Home to Roost." Without my chickens I would have no blog or Facebook page & could not continue to bring you the experiences, photos, information & chicken-related entertainment you have become accustomed to seeing from me.

If you would like to help me wage the battle for the right to keep my chickens, a donation of ANY size would help. Rachel, Blaze & I thank you in advance for your support in any form! 
To donate through PayPal, please click on this link or click on the Rachel/Blaze photo with the "Donate" button on it in the right-hand sidebar of my blog. My email address for direct donations through PayPal is: Kathy@The-Chicken-Chick.com  No Paypal account is necessary to use a credit card to donate. My mailing address is: PO Box 399, Suffield, CT 06078.
Questions about the character of my yard, neighborhood and town are answered with this link to Google Street Maps where You can see my property, (it has the kids' white playhouse/swingset in the backyard) the complaining neighbor's house to the right of it and drive around town to check out all the farms, horses and chickens! 
The argument I made to my town's zoning commission can be seen and heard in this YouTube video.

Flock Focus Friday, 8/8/14

Summer Chickens
We have enjoyed virtual weather perfection here in New England this week, which has allowed me plenty of time to putter in the yard and garden. The chickens have been making good use of the sunshine too, enjoying hours of Cucumber Tetherball! When not outside, I spent quite a lot of time researching and writing an article for you about the benefits of Sweet PDZ with chickens as I welcomed Sweet PDZ as my newest sponsor!
