We got pounded by Mother Nature ALL WEEK with snow storm after snow storm. It felt like the snow shovel never left my hands, but at least the temperatures were a little more moderate than they have been this winter, which makes me feel better about the comfort of my flock even though they remain primarily confined to the run.
Kate, a Speckled Sussex hen and a few of her friends braved
the snowy path up to the house in search of scratch.
Caesar (Serama cockerel)
Blaze (Black Copper Marans rooster and Ally McBeak (Tolbunt Polish Frizzle) remain in the infirmary. Blaze is still recovering from a frostbitten comb while Ally is really just keeping him company at this point. Her pecking injuries have healed fully.
Marilyn Monroe (White Orpington) with her beak fully intact at the beginning of the week.
Marilyn Monroe injured her beak somehow and is now missing the tip. It will re-grow just like fingernails do. Read more about beaks, beak injuries and repairing beak injuries here.
My flock, looking a little discontent, with good reason. We’re all ready for spring!
Spring really needs to hurry up and get here.
Lola (Columbian Wyandotte) and her shadow. ♥
