Cuteness follows



A surprise this morning. We have a baby chick!

Just a quickie pic for now... I didn't want to disturb them too much and the other eggs haven't hatched yet.

Chicks are so cute. Chickens, not so much..

I love it when one of our hens has her some babies - I always feel like it's christmas morning!

Those hens are surprisingly nice--I woulda thought they'd be more protective. That's so cute though. Makes me wanna buy a farm and get a bunch of chickens!

Ditto!

This hen is a Buff Orpington, which is a very docile breed. She squawks a little and makes pecking motions, and fluff her feathers all out - but doesn't really do any harm.

Unfortunately the other two eggs didn't hatch. I should have given her more of them I guess. I'll know better next time.

Oh, that little chickie face! What a great picture....also, I admit to being very envious that you get to enjoy it in person.

(Though I am hoping to perhaps have a few ducklings next year!)
