The weather today is absolutely BEAUTIMUSSSS!!!!! I went out this morning and couldn't believe how cool and crisp the air was.
I went to let all the teenagers out of their pens. They are so busy this morning eating bugs and worms!
I was moving the canned peaches and chicken that I had canned this last week, down into the cellar. Heard this little baby chick peeping away. I had noticed that Missy Red had hatched a new one earlier this morning. Thought I would just keep it under her for a few more hours before I brought it into the house. I am always afraid of a cat hurting them....so I hurried down to see the commotion..... this is what I found peeping away on the ledge. Eeeekkkk! Missy Red had taken a break from her nest and he just came out on his own. It is safe under a light now in the house with 3 others.....total 11 in the last week. All of them are the sweetest!
Some may ask why I am letting the Momma sit on babies at this time of year. Well the reason was I didn't realize that the other girls kept going in with her and laying eggs. I didn't realize that until it was to late. I was candling the eggs and saw that there were new babies.....in the eggs.....I can't hurt them so that is why we are having babies. I keep the Milk House nice and warm during the winter months so the chicks will be fine......just sayin.......in case you were wondering.
It will be a busy day around here on the farm......cleaning, decorating......getting ready for some newly weds that will be coming this next weekend! Can't wait to have them here on the farm! I will be making this.....for the front of the Refuge Cabin door.....isn't it so pretty? I have everything I need.....I will show you later what mine looks like....want it to look just like this!
Hope all of you have a sweet day......and know that you have been prayed for...He loves it when we come to him!!!!!!!
Hugs from the farm,
