Saturday Dose of Cute: Spring Chicken

Spring Chicken 1

More photos below. . .

Happy when you look at hens? You'll find lots more chick pics here.

Just discovering The Daily Donkey? We keep them all corralled up here.

©, where Tuffy, one of our two (so far) free ranging hens, didn't tiptoe through the tulips, but she has been pretty much everywhere else—and one of these days I'll hopefully get around to telling you her story. Meanwhile, if anybody knows where she and Cheeky are laying their eggs, could you please let us in on the secret?


  1. What, Bear can't sniff out their secret stash? C'mon, Bear! Get on that!

  2. I just stumbled across your blog, while searching for some recipes to accommodate all the green onions I scored at the farmers market here in Memphis. Google turned up your Mexican jumping bean slaw recipe, and I will most certainly be trying it out today. Looks delicious! I've been browsing through more recent posts, and I really like your blog! Thanks for the ideas.

  3. I also love your recipes!!!!The hen photos are really pretty and I like the daffodills.Bear must be really sweet to the hens our doggie loves to chase birds and animals really just playing with them.

  4. Tuffy is a very pretty chicken. It is curious that you don't know where they lay their eggs - is that a hazard of being 'free-range'?

    It looks like spring is arriving beautifully in your area. Today is barely 45 degree with a big wind keeping it quite chilly. I just know we are going to go from a very cold spring to a quick jump to HOT!

    How are all the lambs & their moms doing?

  5. What ever happened to Whitney?

  6. Funny, we have a Tuffy too.


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.
