A Quickie Chickie Post

GR&DF today will have to be a short post - and it's all about Pidge and the pidge-lettes. Yesterday we did our usually walking the who-hounds outside to do what doo-doo they could do...... and I took the camera to see if I could get a chick snap. I saw the broken shells the day before and thought there might be some action in the nest. Here is a snap.....

You can see the shells and you can see Lolly looking at mama Pidge - but instead of flying away she puffed up and squawked a bit, but not a bit did she move. So me thinks there might be some pidge-lettes under her warm breast!! I'll keep a camera handy and try and get snap of them if the chance arises.

There you go sports fans - a short and sweet city-chicken update.

Take care,


  1. Awww, she just wants a peek...not a taste!! LOL! Pidge is being a good mama though.

    Happy Stitchin'

  2. That's too cute! Hope you can get a shot of the babies.

    After seeing your post yesterday of the Jan/Feb issue of JCS I called my neighbor to see if she was making a trip in to town today (it's 35 minutes to get anywhere around here so we sort of look out for each other). I can't wait for her to arrive with my issue.
    Thanks for the heads up about it.

  3. Oh my so cute wow you are so lucky to have a nest that you can see, I look forward to seeing the babies.
    Hugs Catherine

  4. Oh boy! So exciting! I hope you're right and there are some babies under that mama's breast!

  5. Bet mama pidge was giving little Lolly the stink-eye! I think you are right that there must be some little ones under the protection of their mama! I'll be excitingly waiting to see more!

  6. Look at that Mama protecting her young!

  7. Tiger Pidge!! That's what Mama's do...protect their young...give your Mama a call or hug (if she is close enough today). Mamas will face an elephant if our young are in danger whether they are 5 years or 50 years old. Good pics Edgar...I didn't know birds "puffed up" for protection /to face the enemy. I practice this in resturants to get a better seat...elbows out, make yourself look bigger so you don't get stuck in a corner.
