The challenge word for day 26 is “favourite”. Since it’s Flock Friday, I’ll admit that my favorite chicken is Merida. She’s just so friendly, always coming up to me to greet me, and lets me pet her. 🐓📷 #mbfeb


The challenge word for day 21 is “colors”. Here’s a picture of our custom chicken coop from the recent ice storm, with the translucent icicles and white snow adding to the many colors of the coop, inspired by Caribbean houses. 📷 #mbfeb

The challenge word for day 19 is “alive”. Quality feed not only keeps our chickens alive, but also healthy, happy, and productive, when combined with tasty treats. 🐓📷 #mbfeb

The challenge word for day 4 is “layers”. Our 19 chickens are good layers, averaging about 14 eggs per day in summer; the number reduces to only one or two during fall molting, but is starting to ramp up again now, at about five per day. 🐓🥚📷 #mbfeb
