© 2009, the fine feathered foodie farm blog where obviously the chickens don't think it's fair that the bouncing baby lambs get all the attention this time of year.


  1. My son raised and showed poultry in 4-H for 12 years. On one hand, I really miss the babies this time of year. On the other hand, because they were incubated in the house, I don't miss the fine feather dust that settled over everything. I'll just look at your pictures and reminisce. (That baby doesn't look like its real momma is the red hen.)

  2. Oh, the cuteness!

    I love coming here for my daily dose of sugar--it beats raiding my kid's Easter baskets. :^)


  3. A fundamental difference between you and me, Susan: You only post cute photos and stories of lambs and chicks. I explain how we dispatched a rooster and why we shouldn't get attached to boy lambs. Harsh, that's me . . .

  4. Hi Susan~
    That baby chick is so precious! (I am so redundant, aren't I?) Honestly, your animals and the photos make my day!! Thank you so much for sharing them with us.

    (Have I told you how much I LOCE your blog? Thanks again!)

  5. *sigh, none of my little dearies have gone broody yet! I am hoping one does soon! I want chicks again :) I may have to resort to the feed mill soon....

  6. How is it that chickens can give you a LOOK that says "Touch my chick and you'll be sorry?"

  7. My goodness~ The baby is adorable~

  8. I think my exact response was AHHH!!!! CUUUUTTTEEEE!

    I am awaiting my first chickens and in the mean time am having issues with patience hehehe.

  9. I think that is one of the best pictures you have ever featured on your site! Too cute!! I hope you are getting some rest :)

  10. So cute and fluffy. I miss having baby chicks.

  11. I cannot believe how CUTE that picture is!!! I can't take it - it is just TOO CUTE!

  12. I have to go vegan after seeing this one...why do they have to grow up?!


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!
