Visiting Grandma’s Chickens

The photos are dark and gloomy, not exactly the Christmas photos that most people post at this time of the year. It was raining on Sunday, and we made our round delivering Christmas presents, and oddly I didn’t take any picture of the presents. Grandma’s garden looked gloomy, it was still drizzled when I was outside taking pictures.

She left a few plants in her greenhouse, and it’s not sheltering the plants well.

She kept some in her garage, and these look a lot better than the ones in her greenhouse.

It was a ducky weather, and I don’t think the chickens like it very well.

This is one of the 17 incubator chicks that Bo hatched in September of this year.

There is a cat that lives in her hen house, I don’t think s/he has a name.

The hen house was extremely dark and the images have digital noise.

The white hen is one of the 17 incubator chicks, I didn’t recognized her at first since I didn’t expect her to be this big.

You might be able to describe this image better than I could. 🙂

These are some of the 17 chicks, they stay together in a group.

The laying hens laid less eggs in the winter because of less daylight hours.


  1. Hi Nye! The photos look great, even if you think they’re too dark or gloomy. 🙂 I think the weather created a very interesting atmosphere and story in the photos. The chickens look very well and healthy (and cat too!). They’ve grown a lot since September. Just love fresh eggs especially in a Lao omelette! Hope you and your family had a great Christmas. Wishing you and your family a wonderful new year! Best wishes. 🙂

    • Hi Padaek, photos do tell story of the photographer’s mood, messages, and situation at the time. I almost didn’t recognize the chicken that we hatched, and they’ll be fully grown the next time I see them.

      Thank you for the wishes, and many blessings return to you and your family. 🙂

  2. Out west it has been surprising warm and bright. Good to chase away the winter blues, but once a year I do enjoy the cold gray winter days. When the streets are cold and quiet we slow down and appreciate the comforts of a cozy home.

    • cn, here we have less sunny days than you do. It’s nice to see more sunlight in the evening, and I’m looking forward to the warm sunny spring day. 🙂
