New babies!





We have new baby chicks! Let me just say I was shocked yesterday when I found them. We thought this hen had gone on. Well, yesterday afternoon I was cleaning out my truck and heard chirping. I went to investigate and found said hen sitting on babies! I believe we have 10, though I am not sure. As you will notice in the pictures she is not very happy I am around. She is a very good mom. I found where she had been sitting in our shed. There was one egg that was trying to hatch out, so I ran into the house to get the camera to document it. I knew Savannah would want to see it. Savannah was so excited to get home and see the new babies! This morning hen and babies are doing well. She had them out and about today. This is one of the great many blessings of living in the country. Getting to be a part and witness firsthand God's many creatures and life. I will keep you posted on the babies!

CONGRATS! we, too had baby chicks. this was our first time, as our hens are only 1 1/2 years old. we had always just gathered but this past month, we let them sit. not sure how many are out there now, but a couple days ago, there were 4. the kiddos are excited, as I am sure Savannah is.

That is so neat! I'm not a real "outdoorsy" person, but that has to be so neat to see those kinds of things. And most importantly to know how awesome God is to have created them!

By the way, thanks for your comments! I really appreciate it! I hope you have a great day!
