  1. SWEEEET! :)

  2. So exciting!!!
    I can't wait to see them all.
    Are there any that didn't hatch?
    Can't wait to see Whitey strutting around with the brood following her. Can't wait to see what kind of Mom she becomes.
    Basically - can't wait to see more cuteness and hear all of the details.

  3. Hooray for adoptive parenting! Whitey - hope you had lots of hens and everyone is healthy. FG does she get special feed or a back rub or champagne after all that work??

  4. Congratulations Whitey! Now the work really begins!

  5. Congratulations Whitey! and you of course!! I remember reading the first post about poor Whitey sitting on an unfertilized egg and thinking what a sad story it was. Now she has lots of little chicks - So exciting! Can't wait to see more pics and follow them as they grow up. Gorgeous :)

  6. Congratulations, Whitey!!
    What wonderful memories of my years as a poultry farmer's daughter. My grandmother used to keep the newly born chicks in her kitchen until they were ready to go to the specially prepared chicken houses. Ah, the peeping!
    Happy mothering, Whitey!!

  7. oh Happy Day for Whitney and her new little chicks :)

    [I have the Biggest Goofiest Grin on my face right now]

  8. So cute! I want to snuggle one!

  9. Well done, Whitey and Farmgirl!

  10. What a great adventure! Thanks for sharing. Whitey is such a gal. Part zen part coma, heh, I think she was just resting up for terrible twos! (I've heard those blue egg chicks are really rambuncious!;) How many people years is a chicken year?

  11. What became of the white eggs? Were they hers?


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
