A Puffball, a Cackle & a Sunset...

This little puffball is our newest

she is number 10 of the chicks hatched on Pilgrim's Farm

her mama, Kittie, is the first puffball of Pilgrim's Farm

but, I sneaked another hen's egg under her when she went broody and didn't lay any to sit on

why, hello there! little newest puffball

 oops! nope, guess you aren't interested, little puffball

this puffball's real mama is Gurdle girl, who is cackling up a real noise...
a cackle that matches her funny looks

Gurdle, who is a rescue from an unhappy egg farm... 
would like us all to know...

she has laid an egg

yeah, Gurdle girl...
you did good

and Foxie, just wanted to make sure there really is an egg under the bench

and because we do get some pretty nice sunsets...

this one from the night before...

I just couldn't pass up without the camera

love the colors

my God knows how to paint better than anyone

The heavens declare the glory of God;
and the firmament sheweth His handywork.
Psalm 19:1

they do, indeed

and now, it's time to say good-night

May the Lord bless your day, or night with His grace.


  1. Wow! your photography is amazing!!!! thanks for sharing.

  2. Will Puffball still be Puffball when he turns into a big 'ol rooster?

  3. Puffball is the generic name I call my new chicks until they loose their fluff for feathers. Then, they are "peepers". If I keep them, they get names that seem to suit their personality. : )

  4. Beautiful pictures, specially the sunset ones, have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Oh what joyous pictures!
    I really enjoyed my visit ;-)
    Blessings and Hugs, Linnie

  6. The puffball is so cute! There is nothing more precious than baby chicks and their mama. So much better than trying to raise them oneself. I agree about your sunsets too. :)

  7. Gerdie needs a tiny set of spectacles, that would complete her look!lol Puffball is darling!

    Beautiful handiwork indeed!!! (sunsets)
