Flock Focus Friday, 11/15/13

This week, the January/February edition of Chickens® from Hobby Farms arrived in the mailbox with my article about how to build a better chicken feeder in the centerfold! That was fun, but there was no time to read through the rest of the magazine with two more articles to wind up for my editors by this weekend. (tick, tock...)
Meanwhile, in the backyard, we enjoyed the final days of live flowers as temperatures plummeted into the teens. I'm SO not ready for winter, but we have started winterizing the coops and I'll be writing about it for you later this week.
  Blaze (Black Copper Marans rooster) with three of his favorite ladies.
 Doc Brown (White Crested Black Polish hen) with her friend,
Rachel, (Bantam Cochin Frizzle) channeling her inner pumpkin. 
 Iris (Olive Egger pullet) and Lola (Columbian Wyandotte) kept close tabs on the Littles (Black Copper Marans chicks and Olive Egger chicks).
 This is another Olive Egger pullet, Iris' unnamed sister.

 Iris' chick-warming capacity was put to the test. 
  Spartacus (Serama x Red Sex Link) and his uncle, Caesar (bottom/right) are besties, but they have been seen chest-bumping and engaging in stare-downs lately, which the nephew invariably wins.
 Now that Rachel (below, Bantam Cochin Frizzle) has finished molting, she has resumed egg-laying at the rate of 3 per week. None has proven fertile in the incubator yet though despite Sparky's best efforts. An unidentified flock member had the audacity to pluck these newly grown feathers out of Rachel in a nest box skirmish. :(

  

Thanks for joining me and have a great weekend!

    wonderful pics as always. we have begun our preparation for our first chicken winter. Plastic is up on the outside of 2 sides of the run, venting has been reduced to keep out some of the drafts, and working on water warmers. I heard a fox the other night and it brought me right out of bed, now that by ladies are more likely to be a target as the winter approaches. Our Dane jumped to her feet and stood guard out by the coop for a while, letting any around know that she was on night watch. Gee!!! It's like having an infant again. :-)

    Can't wait to hear what you do to get your coops ready for winter. I was afraid to use the sand method with my small flock of six. Their little coop is raised off of the ground about 24" to give more space for them. There is no supplemental heat. I've opted for the deep litter method with hopes that it will create some warmth in the coop. Any advice is welcomed.

    I feel like a pregnant lady -- preparing months in advance for the arrival of my first chicks. We've learned so much from your blog, and your humor and terrific photos are inspiring. Thanks for doing what you do!

  187. I rake up a pile of leaves and trow in a handful of treats...very comical. The girls are on to me though and will scratch apart the pile before I can hide their treats!

    So glad to see Blaze looking so healthy now ^^
    poor Rachel, never fails regardless of my chicken box math either. They all end up wanting a particular one that day and a skirmish or two undoubtedly erupts.. then the favorite spot magically changes!! lil scoundrels are quite determined to drive us crazy at least 2x a day :3
    The girls vote for entering the scratch and peck for their stormy weather entertainment
    (btw, Berthas feathers are already looking wonderful on the supplement! I'll be taking and sharing some pics for you soon as I'm back up and about :D

    The girls absolutely love the mealworm frenzy. One of them actually hops up and down in front me when I'm holding the container.

    My ladies love dried mealworms and we just bought our first bag of Scratch & Peck

    I do not have Scratch and Peck locally so that would be GREAT! The ladies also love hen treats so either way is fantastic!
