Flock Focus Friday, 1/30/15

We have been getting hammered with frigid temps and snow storms here in New England, including a certified blizzard last week and are now staring down the barrel of another couple of feet of snow tomorrow night!
The Blizzard of 2015
Looking back at my photos from January I can’t believe how nutty it was: Doc Brown came down with a mystery illness that had me looking at her back for several days to determine whether she was still breathing. After days of hand feeding and prayer, she miraculously recovered. Blaze & Chevy got hit with frostbite which put them out of commission and in the basement Mancave where they remain with Doc until temperatures warm up. Mr. Chicken Chick and I had whirlwind weekend at the Northeastern Poultry Congress meeting so many of my amazing peeps, followed days later by a scheduled surgery that put me out of commission for a bit. Finally, we have been getting hammered with frigid temps and snow storms here in New England, including a certified blizzard last week and are now staring down the barrel of another couple of feet of snow tomorrow night! Whew! I’m exhausted just thinking about it all. I’m very much looking forward to a mostly boring February, please!

Doc Brown and me.

Today will require either an endless supply of coffee or bail money.
I love that coffee has the power to make me believe I'm in a good mood for about 30 minutes every morning.
Next year we fly south. 
If you really loved me, you'd bring me coffee. (Quickly & Silently) 
Of course it's Monday, this ain't my Friday face.
Coffee ready yet?
Hey, when I woke up this morning, I had no idea I was going to be this fabulous either.
Too much morning...not enough coffee.
I could have hatched in Hawaii, but NOOOO... 
I'm not addicted to coffee. Much.
My favorite part of winter? When it's over.
You had me at "hot coffee."
I'm not cut out for winter...I want my flip flops! 
My favorite winter activity is going back inside where it's warm.

I got 10 Double-laced Blue Barnvelders and 6 maran chicks at a local poultry auction this weekend. I also bought a dozen olive-egger hatching eggs. The brinsea would be the perfect addition to my brooder!!!

Planning to get my next flock additions in April and would love to win one of these… Keep up the good work and love the flow of pics. Glad Doc is doing better.

Getting our chicks soon and would sure like to have one of these to use rather than use the somewhat dangerous heat lamp.
