I would like to take a moment to congratulate Mr. and Mrs. Hijeevey Marans for their first hatch!!!!


It was touch in go for a while. The nanny had to leave the nest in order to chase the first pip around. So I had to take the rest of the clutch to the incubator. I would have offered the clutch to Mrs. Purdy Marans but she couldn't be bothered with such silliness. After all Hijeevey likes Mrs. Purdy Marans at his side at all times, she just didn't have the time to raise babies.

So the nanny looked after the one, while I took care of the rest.

But I have to say....

I think Mrs. Purdy Marans has some serious explaining to do!


  1. Ha!! Can't she just say but look how cute they are dear and leave it at that? : )

    I seriously need chickens in my life. Sigh.


  2. Clearly, Mrs Marans has been stepping out. What a terrible scandal for the barn yard! I bet if you listen, very closely, you'll hear the gossiping in the coup today!!

  3. Andrea,
    Hey whats good for the goose should be good for the gander... Hijeevey is quite the hens Rooster, if ya know what I mean. ;)

    Everyone needs a chicken in their life. :)

    O.M.G The Scandal is out! I even heard Perez talking about it! But a new twist in the story... The Nanny came forward and said she had an inappropriate relationship with Jeeves. I don't know if Mrs. Purdy and Jeeves will be able to move beyond all the mistrust.... So sad. They seemed to have it all, Love, Fame, and anything their little gizzards desired... I suppose nothing is what it seems.

    Ahhh {{{{Sigh}}}} Chickens are SOOOOO much fun!

  4. OH, dear!!
    Recessive genes from other generations???

  5. Sometimes Leigh your posts make me smile for hours upon end, the looks this normally sour faced grease monkey receive are something to behold.
    I've just got to get chickens in my life!!
