Emma's Sister Hen

If you have been reading here very long, you know that early this spring one of our hens became broody (go to the right sidebar and click 'broody hen' to read more). This was our first one and we were thrilled. She ended up with three surviving chicks- all are doing well, still in the chicken tractor and will soon be transitioned to join the rest of the flock.

Here is Emma and her pullets/cockerels (we haven't bothered to figure out what they are yet).

And, here is one of Emma's sister hens (I prefer not to use 'sister wives', even though that's what they really are). Yep, we have another broody hen and once again, we are very excited.

Please excuse her poop. When you gotta go, you gotta go.

When Emma was setting, I was jealous that her chicks would come before my baby would. Not this time- I think I'm going to win this one.

My belly and knees (just in case you've never seen anything so large).

We need a name for this momma- the hen, not me. Any suggestions?? Pin It


  1. charlotte...emma and charlotte.

  2. I think you need a Gracie...Emma and Gracie :)

  3. Those are both very cute suggestions...

    And your belly looks great! And very healthy!! When are you due again?

  4. You could keep the Austen heroine theme and go with Anne or Elizabeth... or Fanny (Mansfield Park). Fanny!

  5. Emma was the top baby name for 2008, #2 was Isabella.


Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
