So much has happened since I posted last. Life at the college has kept us all hopping...building on our daughter's round pen.....
and working around in my garden. I had to protect my rhubarb with old wire fencing so the chickens won't bug them.
My potatoes are all coming up. This week the weather is warmer and so plants will be growing.......that means the weeds also!
Remember the eggs that the Momma hens were sitting on and little Birch jumped up on the ledge? Well, on Monday evening I went to roll the eggs and I heard this peeping noise. This morning he was still peeping. When I got home he had a little hole......oh my.......just a minute ago as I was typing this I heard him really peeping loud.....jumped up and saw that he or she is out. A little black cochin baby fluff just hatched!!!!!!!! How funny that I would be writing at this very moment when it hatched.
I lost my camera out in the field somewhere......waiting on my new one to come in the mail. My daughter took this pic for me. It is still wet and very very small. It is still attached to the egg membrane. It is tired.......and so am I. Hope you enjoy this picture. Now about 49 more to go!
Hugs and God bless you!!!!!!!
