Flock Focus Friday, 11/1/13

 There is no prettier time of year in New England than autumn and as the last of the colorful leaves fell from the trees this week, we said goodbye to the amazing color palate until next year.
Rachel, my Bantam Cochin Frizzle, finally emerged from her molt. Her feathers are more vibrant than ever!
Calista Flockheart, (Tolbunt Polish Frizzle) one of my Partridge Plymouth Rock pullets & Blaze (Black Copper Marans rooster).
 Freida (White Silkie hen)
 Windy (Blue Splash Marans)
   Blaze.
 Calista Flockheart and Ally McBeak (on roost) both Tolbunt Polish Frizzles.
 Iris, (Olive Egger pullet) in her first experience as a broody hen, adopted a variety of chicks that I hatched in the incubator and slipped underneath her after dark.
The ten chicks are either Black Copper Marans or Olive Eggers.
 Black Copper Marans chick (left) and Olive Egger chick (right)

 Kate (Speckled Sussex hen) enjoys a dust bath in the run with some friends
as I spied on her through the pop door.
White Crested Black Polish chick and Spartacus (Mille Fleur Serama crossed with Red Sex link) who is Brutus' son.
Jerry Seinfeld (White Crested Black Polish Frizzle)

 Spartacus.
 Sparky (Black Copper Marans cockerel) has found his voice recently and is a chip off the ol' block. He sounds very much like his dad, Blaze. ♥
 Chick-or-treat!

Thanks for joining me and have a great weekend!

The winner of last week's Flock Focus Friday giveaways are:
1) Vetericyn Wound & Infection Treatment Prize Package: Eilene Corcoran
2) Happy Hen Treats Prize Package: Stephen Sofley

  5. As I get ready for a mass movement of my 23 hen & 5 Roo flock I'm finding myself here searching your blog even more than usual to get the best set-up I can in place at the new farm. Have you got any suggestions for the best way to move my kids to reduce the amount of stress they will have to go through?

    ReplyDelete
  6. That is what I need some Spruce the Coop for my new coop addition. :)

    It's going to be a shock to them, so just brace yourself for a major drop in egg production as a result. If you free-range them, I'd keep them confined to the coop and run for a week or two until they settle down b/c the stress can cause them to fail to return to the new coop at dusk.

  10. I love the chicken hat! If I don't win, can you direct me to the pattern??? Please????

  11. We've just started getting eggs again after molting season so it won't be a problem for me. I figured they'd be put off by the move into the new digs.
    I'm going to get some "volunteers" (read relatives) to help me move everyone at the same time after dark so they'll all move into the coop at the same time. I already have a small run set up & I'm going to cover it once we finish the coop so I can keep them from wandering. I have a Black Copper Maran/Silver Laced Wyandotte pullet that is quite the flyer and she regularly hops over the 4' fence they're contained with now. The new place is much more rural so there are new predators for them to be aware of. I'm glad I have a few roos to help keep an eye out.

    Love your flock portraits and introductions every week. We can't have more than 8 hens, so I love "meeting" all your girls. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.
