Babies and More Babies!!!!!! Life is Good!

Here is our first baby!!!!!!!! Will be fluffy in a few hours. 

Good morning sweet ladies........last night I went to bed and still no babies out of their eggs. I woke up early this morning and the tiny cochin egg that started last night had just a little more egg to peck around. I kept going back and forth to the incubator to try to video it. I was so excited because I actually got it coming out of the shell on video for you. The first banty cochin egg is not quite 2" long and the little chick moves and pecks all around. 

 Four BABIES as of noon!!!!!!!!

Yesterday on facebook I talked about the egg having an air pocket. You know how when you boil an egg there is a flat part on the top part of the egg? That is where the baby chick gets it's air supply plus the egg is porous. It is so interesting and so like our Heavenly Father to think of everything, that little egg needs to make a baby chick. Yolk, egg white and all. I love His creation! Here is a wonderful article by Ken Ham on  "Which came first.....the chicken or the egg." Our family loves Answers In Genesis. Ken has been gifted by God to teach families the truths of the Bible. It would be worth your time to read some of their literature. 

Thank you to each lady who has signed up for the Tea Party Across the Miles.............I am amazed that we had so many sign up and soooo fun. 75 ladies so far! I am still taking names......until the 18th........all you have to do is buy or make a card, put in a tea bag and send it off........easy! Plus you are blessing someone's life!!!!!!!

Hugs to your day and asking the Lord to bless your life big time!!!!!!



  1. HI Linda,

    Oh, thanks for those two videos of the cochin chick babies. They're so cute...and Im guessing they're super tiny, because you mentioned their eggs are only about 2 inches long.

    I love homemade beauty stuff..and lemons :) :)

    There's cuteness/sweetness overload happening at your place today :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :) :) :)

  2. Hello Sweet Linda!

    Thank you for sharing the video of the baby chick hatching and hearing your sweet voice! How blessed these little chicks are to be raised by you! When I was reading about the air sack, I thought Heavenly Father thought of everything, then read you said the very same thing! We sure do give Thanks unto Him! Enjoy your time with the chicks and have a very Merry Christmas!


  3. Little miracles! Thank you for sharing these wonderful videos!

    Oh, the baby chicks are so sweet. Reminds me when I was a little girl in Kentucky. My family had a "small" chicken farm (and with ducks). We had a rooster that chased me. I didn't like that rooster.

  8. Hi Linda
    I was going to say 'oh so cute', but actually the truth is it will be 'oh so cute' once it dries off :)
    I hope your teaparty goes well~ I don't drink tea otherwise I'd join in :)
    Have a wonderful day
