Flock Focus Friday, 2/28/14

Flock Focus Friday at The-Chicken-Chick.com
The flock made the best of it this week as temperatures rose just enough to cause flooding, then plummeted to record-breaking lows. Someone tell me spring is just around the corner?

Snow chickens
Dust bathing chickensThere was flooding outside the coop, but the sand was mighty fine for dust bathing!

Partridge Cochin hen getting a bath
Not everyone had the luxury of a dust bath, however. Bertha, our new Partridge Cochin who is still in quarantine, needed a good ol’ water bath. She doesn’t look like she enjoyed it, but trust me, she did!

The Snow Trail to nowhere. 
Chickens in the snow.
There has been enough togetherness for the flock this winter and they’re looking forward to getting more distance in between them, that is, if the snow ever goes away.
Digging out the snow around the chicken coop.
Mr. Chicken Chick helped me dig out around the coops a bit so that the run didn’t flood when the snow melted.

Speckled Sussex and Marans hens.

There's only one thing I hate more than lying...DECAF, which is water lying about being coffee.
