Our baby Chicks

A few weeks ago, our hen started laying eggs again. It became obvious that she was neglecting her motherly duties of sitting on her eggs and so Lanny rescued them and made an incubator.....Much careful observation and monitoring followed, until amidst great excitement 10 days ago, the first eggs started to 'peep'! Now we have 10 little baby chicks and quite a few more still in the incubator. Plus the hen did eventually start to sit on her eggs and so she has some with her outside in the chicken coup too! The children are loving holding and looking after the baby chicks, watching them hatch and grow larger and stronger each day.


  1. They look great, will have to persuade my landlady to let us have chickens..
