Flock Focus Friday, 5/16/14

The Chicken Coop Flower box came to life this week.
It doesn't feel like spring around here until the annuals are planted and Mr. Chicken Chick worked with me to liven up the backyard. This year, we buried hardware cloth underneath mulch surrounding plants so the chickens won't ruin the them. Kate, our Speckled Sussex hen, always stays nearby when yard work is underway as it holds the promise of wiggly snacks!

Bertha, Partridge Cochin hen.
 ellen deHeneres (a Marans hen) went broody this week and was given some chicks to adopt (the ones from P. Allen Smith's flock, in fact). She rejected the two yellow chicks, but is a very good, fiercely protective mother to the others. I almost lost a limb when I tried to pick up one of her chicks! I have the two yellow chicks (breeds undetermined) in my office underneath an EcoGlow brooder.

 We lost our only Bantam Welsumer hen this week due to  a prolapsed oviduct as suspected. After receiving the necropsy report, the vet at the pathology lab confirmed that a pecking injury caused hemorrhaging inside the oviduct when a vessel was punctured. So, while she could have survived the prolapse, flock members' curiosity got the better of them, to her demise.
RIP Irene.


Irene became a member of our flock the day hurricane Irene hit Connecticut in August 2011. She was always the most outspoken hen in the flock. The backyard won't be the same without her.

I drink coffee for your protection.
You haven't had enough coffee until you can thread a sewing machine while it's running.
Given enough coffee, I could totally outrun Monday.
If a woman speaks and no one is listening, her name is probably Mom. 
You know you drink too much coffee when...all your children are named Joe.
Yes, I'm a stay at home mom. Go ahead and ask me what I do all day long. I dare you.
Winner! Winner!
All those people who told me I would become a morning person when I had children lied to me. Now I'm grumpy in the morning AND I have tiny witnesses. Where's the coffee? 
Mother. Noun. One person who does the work of twenty. For free. (see too: lunatic, saint, masochist)
I dream of a world where chickens can cross the road without having their motives crossed.

  69. Kelly O'Malley5/16/14, 9:36 PM

    I love the egg skelter. It would be nice to better organize my eggs to always know which ones were the freshest and which ones to eat first. Is it okay to not have the eggs in a closed egg container? I know the shell is porous, would that matter to have the egg so exposed to air? Do I sound like an idiot ?:)

    ReplyDelete
  70. LOVE all these pictures! Sorry about the loss of Irene. :( Looks like another great giveaway...very cool.

  77. Poor Irene. At least she had a wonderful home before her demise! OMG that picture with the chicken saying you haven't had enough coffee until you can thread a sewing machine while it's running - that is so funny I almost peed my pants laughing! Keep them coming! BTW - I have never heard of an egg skelter before and did a bit of research. Those things are great!

  90. My FB friends are commenting nonstop on the gorgeous chicken pics. Sad about Irene. Thankful of the info about what happened. Great learning issue. Good Idea about adding the cloth to protect the plants. We just mulched last week and couldn't keep up with repairing he beds after the flock descended upon them. Fresh warm mulch must be like heaven to them. They couldn't get enough.

    So sorry about Irene. I'm going to have to euthanize my chicken tomorrow. Her abdomen keeps filling up with fluid and we haven't been able to figure out what it is. It wasn't a broken egg. Tests on the fluid itself revealed that it wasn't cancer but it could be congestive heart failure, liver disease, high blood pressure through the liver or low protein. Antibiotics and anti-inflamitory meds didn't help. :(

    I love the idea of hardware cloth under the dirt around new plantings. I have been placing small boulders all around and this would look nicer and still save the roots. I'm going to try it!! Another great idea. Thanks!

  160. I'm sorry to hear about Irene. I take comfort that I was able to give them a happy, healthy (knock on wood), life but it is always hard to lose a flock member. Hugs!

    I'm so sorry about Irene! I lost my sweet little Sugar last September and I still miss her terribly!

  165. The egg sorter is a great idea! I would love to have one. We made the homemade feeder and it is great! I have to convince my husband to move it to a better location. Love the info on this blog!
