Flock Focus Friday, 7/12/13

Keeping cool was the name of the game this week. Wild weather included 80% humidity, 90°+F temperatures, torrential rains and two, confirmed tornadoes in the area. Thankfully, we are no worse for the wear and the grass and flowers

These eggs will be blown out and sold for decorating.
The eggs’ contents are a great source of protein & will be fed back to my peeps.
