  1. This is a bright start to my day!

    How special a process you are getting to witness. I simply can't wait to see more. You are just dangling the carrot, aren't you?!! :)

    Question: Will you name one of your new chickens after me (must be a distinctive looking you can tell her apart!)???



  2. How exciting - and please don't name a chicken after me - I'd hate to think of smothered LindaSue or Lindasue fricassee! LOL - this is such fun!

  3. Eeeeekkk!! MORE MORE MORE!
    I agree with Lindasue -- such fun!

  4. Fantastic breaking news! Can't wait for more breaking news from the nest!

  6. This is the next best thing to being there! Thank you so much for sharing--this city girl is truly excited.

  7. so I literally made a long drawn out gasping sound :)

  8. I remembered when I was a little girl,I stolen an egg from the mother chicken and tried to sat on it ,I thought I can be the mother of the baby

  9. I can't tell you how many times I've thought of Whitey the past few days. The anticipation of it all. Thanks for sharing with us.

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!
