Flock Focus Friday, 7/25/14

Chicken coop weather vane.
It was critter week here at Blazing Trails Farm in Connecticut. Some of the critters were expected, others were pleasant surprises and one was decidedly shocking. The weather was lovely, allowing for plenty of time to get out there and take in the beauty of it all!

I'm here for the coffee- hold the small talk.

Never underestimate the importance of being properly caffeinated.

Keep Calm & Coffee up!
Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

    I would love to own one of these. I tried to like the page Avian Aqua Miser on Facebook but it is telling me the page is unavailable. I will keep trying.

    I would love to have this. The girls keep pooping in their water so in this 100 degree plus weather I have to keep going out and cleaning it for them. Thanks for your blog!!

    Holy moley I hope I never see a snake like that in my chicken house!

  13. Love your pictures, the snake, not so much :( I think I would die if I reached into a nest box and found one of these. It is huge.
