Keepa, Pitch, ‘n’ Indy

By: Ardis E. Parshall - October 05, 2009

Remember when we enjoyed Arnold Friberg’s earliest known published work, which jeans promptly christened the Hen of God? Well, Jami was, um, inspired by that in the names she gave to three of her chickens, born the Thursday before Memorial Day. She has just sent in pictures:









Thanks, Jami!



  1. What fun! They are honored to be featured on the blog that inspired their names. :)

  2. I just hope that Jami (or any of the other Keepaninnies) is expecting.

  5. Buff Orpingtons and a Black Sex Link? How does that happen in a single brood?

  7. We purchased the eggs to incubate. I think Pitch is a Black Copper Maran, The rooster is a Rhode Island Red, I’m kinda sorta sure about that.

  8. Awesome mascots! Can’t wait for a good old Keepapitchinin omelette.

  9. Appropriate that Indy is the only one with a hat (comb, technically). A Keepa omelet, but not a fried chicken dinner? After hearing about commitment in conference this weekend, it reminds me of the definition of committed: In a bacon and eggs breakfast, the chickens are participants, but the pig is committed!

  10. Trying to imagine what would go into a Keepapitchinin omelette. It’d be cheesy, for sure, with a heapin’ helpin’ of ham.

  11. When the girls start laying, maybe I’ll make meringues and send you some. An omelet won’t ship well, methinks.

  12. How are these mascots doing?

  13. If a Keepa omlet were really big, would it be appropriate to eat it with a PITCH fork?

  14. I had a friend in grade school who’s middle name is Pitch. Not sure Todd would fit in though. :-(
