Just a quick note from our homestead! With all the excitement over eggs this time of year, I thought, “why not share the news!?”
We have a little silkie hen we adoringly call Doe-Doe. She is hilariously entertaining and stubbornly broody. She has earned her keep more than any animal on our farm, though! Last year she brooded and hatched out 3 clutches of guinea eggs in a row. People can’t buy the keets fast enough!
We don’t keep a rooster, (only a guinea rooster) but a dear friend of mine gave me six fertilized eggs. The news I’m so excited about is that they are due — TUESDAY! I’m loving the thought of Doe-Doe finally being able to have “her” babies that she brooded so faithfully, staying with her and watching her mother and care for them!
Please watch for a post! Have you ever seen anything CUTER than a baby chick? (OK, cuter than SIX baby chicks with their “dodo bird” momma?)
Do you have any news this Spring from your home you want to share with us?! We’d love to hear from you!
