While We Looked Away...

and while this first chickie was growing...

and growing we hope into an egg laying hen...

Penny, Big Red's hen number two...
was sitting on an egg
just one

but, looked what hatched out while we weren't looking

we knew Penny was brooding on her egg but...
we got a tiny chick sooner than our calculations

Mama Penny presents our second chick bred on Pilgrim's farm

yeah, Mama Penny...
you did good and baby is doing fine

until we know for sure, it's a "she"
more eggs...please?

May you have a fine day, or night.


  1. Ah,so wonderful! Beautiful pictures! May You have a fine day or night! Blessings!

  2. Oh, this truly very sweet and a nice surprise too! :)


  3. That is a nice surprise...Good job Penny!

  4. Mama Penny and baby are cute! Hoping you are surprised by eggs next.
    .... I like your blog, the pictures of the garden, and posts about faith are lovely.
    Blessings :) Deanna

  6. It's been awhile since I've been to your lovely blog . . . I need to begin visiting again, as I have always enjoyed viewing the photos from your farm.
