Flock Focus Friday, 6/20/14

Please join me in welcoming my newest sponsor, Chubby Mealworms! Knowing how much your chickens love wiggly treats, (or..formely wiggly treats) when the founder of Chubby Mealworms reached out to me to sponsor my blog, partnering with them was a total no-brainer! Take the credit card and cell phone away from your chickens because mealworms is the only product they sell AND shipping is always FREE!* 
Please enjoy some photos from here this week!
Freida, Rachel and four other hens are broody this week. Only Freida (White Silkie) has been given hatching eggs- the others are being broken up.

Mountain Laurel is the state flower of Connecticut and a new addition to our chicken yard this summer.☺
 Mountain Laurel shrub.
Summer temperatures are really warming up, learn how you can help keep your chickens safe in hot weather with these tips, which include closing hot nest boxes and employing open-air substitutes such as large baskets.

Coffee made me do it.
