New Years baby.

We arrived home today after ten days in Melbourne which has been lovely. The kids were particularly excited to be home when they found out what just hatched......

Its been christened "Cheepy" by Miss Muff.
We aren't sure how its going to turn out as its biological Mum is a lovely big fluffy brown chook, Dad is a rather scruffy undersized bantom with issues, and the adoptive mother (who hatched the egg) is a very cranky white chook.

When I get unpacked and a little more organised I'll sit down and do a catch up post on what we have been up to. I'm in quite the holiday mode.


  1. Aww...what a cutie! I heart Cheepie xo

  2. The bottom photo is a keeper.

  3. Your photos are lovely, Julie. Keep up that holiday spirit as long as you can. Happy new year.

  4. Happy new year,pictures are great so cute. Poor chicken certainly has his work cut out with parents like that bless him.

  5. Good that you had a nice vacation!!! And keep the hodiday mode for a while, it doesn´t hurt, and it is good for the spirit too!!
    I know nothing about chickens but this one sounds like one that would probably need a shrink!!!
    The best for you and your family in this new year!

  6. What a sweet surprize for the kids... 8-)

  7. What a lovely suprose to come home to!

    The holiday looked good by the beach... always nice change to home!
