Flock Focus Friday with The Chicken Chick 4/25/14

Flock Focus Friday with The Chicken Chick  4-25-14
Busy, busy week here in Suffield, Connecticut. Lots of sunshine and balmy temperatures provided ideal conditions for doing spring clean up and yard work that the chickens were happy to help with. Please enjoy the photos!
Our annual truckload of mulch was delivered this week and the chickens did their part to help spread it into place- and then kicked it out of place.

A little strategically placed hardware cloth underneath preferred dust bathing locations (theirs, not mine!) seems to be redirecting the chickens' digging activities. 
Rake mulch on top of hardware cloth to keep chickens out of certain flower beds.

One of my "little" brothers visited this week with my niece to pick up his annual load of custom-made chicken manure for his garden.

Flock Focus Friday at The Chicken Chick®
  There are currently three broody hens in the flock. The hens who have proven to be good mothers will be given fertile eggs to hatch.

 Mr. Chicken Chick installed the mailbox he made for me in February for my birthday. I love it and it's a nice clean spot to set down the egg basket while puttering around the chicken yard.

AW YA, BABY...IT'S FRIDAY!!!
Coffee's ON!
I most certainly did NOT eat your Oreos and am appalled at the suggestion.
Guess what day it is?
Holy. Cow. chick
You call it coffee. I call it Survival Juice.
The early bird can have the worm. I'll take coffee.
Um...HELLOOOO!?
 Monday's Calling. I think I'll let it go to voicemail.
It's not "Happy" or "Merry" anything until AFTER I have had my coffee.

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

  7. Hello Kathy! I would love to win that chicken hydrator waterer! Thanks for the opportunity. Also - the chicken fourth from the bottom, copper and black, doesn't have a comb! I don't think I have ever seen a chicken without a comb, or am I just missing out on a few brain cells! What kind of a chicken is that?

  10. Hey Kathy! I just wanted to say that I enjoy reading your Flock Focus Friday postings but what I love most is the assortment of chickens that you have! I am a newbie to backyard chickens and I currently have a white silkie that I hatched three months ago. Do you have any hints or tips on how to tell if its a hen or rooster? Or do I have to wait?

    Plus, I would LOVE to have this waterer for my other two hens!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I have one of these waterers, set up in the chick pen. They use it very well, but the little silkies need a brick to stand on to reach the nipple. I had to resort to giving them water in one of the small flip waterers as Topaz nearly died on dehydration. Fortunately, I caught it in time and pulled her back with a hit of electrolytes and loads of water.
    Good luck to whoever wins!

  110. We just switched from a regular waterer to a nipple waterer in the brooder and are -very- happy with it (as well as the new sand litter!).

  124. as always... love the photos of your flock! i do have a question though... our chicks are 9 weeks old now, and i tried over the weekend to introduce the poultry nipple waterer to them... i got some very dirty chicken looks... and no success... i re-read your blog about it... but they don't seem to be interested in the water coming out- only what lands on the ground. i really want to switch them to this as i really think it will be much more helpful and healthy for them... they don't agree at this point in time. any suggestions to help train them?

    The waterer can be made almost free. free frosting buckets from WalMart or Meijer stores and $1.50 per nipple with gasket to keep water from leaking. I ahve 1 for my 6 chickens with 3 nipples and can put a bucket waterer in to keep it from freezing even in sub zero temps. So whoever doesn't win it's very simple and works great. Otherwise I use a 2 l. bottle for their portable coop and inside pen. Nothing better as it's ALWAYS clean. Good lcuk to the winner. Loved seeing your chickens and all the photos with this post. Thanks for sharing.

    Absolutely love this waterer! Such a useful item:) I recently used a 5 gallon bucket, drilled good size holes in the bottom and then screwed a chip and dip server from the dollar tree to bottom. Makes an awesome feeder, and since it flares a bit on the edges they don't scatter it ever where..
