I Survived the Littles First Day Out


I found it difficult to ‘let go and let God,’ as we headed back inside the house…

Logically speaking, I know that chickens have been taking care of themselves for thousands of years… but this momma hen was having trouble letting go of her babies!

However, after talking with a few of my fellow chicken farmers, we decided we would let Little Sis have complete control over the careful watch of her young…


Though they are more than 2 weeks old, they are still so small in size compared to the rest of our 1-acre homestead…

I found myself constantly looking out the window to make sure they were okay… yet, every time I peered through the window, I could not find my precious babies!

And, even though there have been hawks and vultures circling the field behind ours, I put my faith in our Creator and in Little Sis, and continued on with my day…

By the time we were ready to go out and close the coop for the night, I had images of unspeakable horrors as to what I might find… but thankfully, I was pleasantly greeted by Little Sis and her young brood!


As I sighed a huge sigh of relief, I went into the feed room for a much-deserved treat for the little family!

And before you ask… Yes, I did share the treats with Teriyaki and the rest of the gang!


After everybody went inside for the night, I finally found myself able to relax…

Now that I know everyone is safe and sound, I can finally say, ‘I survived the ‘Littles’ first day out!’

Till next time,

Desperate for change, I left the city behind and moved to the country... I am obsessed with raising chickens, old barns and cooking from scratch. Welcome to my homestead!
