The trip of a lifetime to Little Rock Arkansas combined with a most inconvenient stomach flu 24 hours prior to my flight meant that I didn’t have time to prepare a Flock Focus Friday for you last week- you’ll forgive me though, right? I was invited to attend P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home Retreat to be the guest reporter for him at his Poultry Workshop, which was an honor indeed! I knew that I would be filming television and radio segments with Allen the day before the workshop, but I didn’t realize that I was going to be the only chicken blogger/writer in attendance that weekend- holy pressure, Batman! I had the time of my life and can’t wait to share the scoop with you. I have been catching up on work and fielding new offers and opportunities all week, but I promise to share more details about my trip very soon!

Allen and me on the way to chat with his brother (who really needs his own reality show- he was a total hoot)!
Egglets from P. Allen Smith, safe at home in Connecticut!
Back to the coal mines on Monday. ☺ The torrential rain created flooding in many parts of Connecticut, including my chicken yard.
What a difference a day makes! The snow quickly melted the next day and Caesar stood guard over the backyard while Mr. Chicken Chick built some new droppings boards for the coops!
Catch of the day.
