There Be Chickies!


Most of the chicks have hatched out. They are coming out all sorts of colors. Some have black legs and beaks. Others look like pure breed Buff Orpingtons. I’m looking forward to seeing them in two weeks.

I was surprised to hear the chicks chirping inside their shells before they hatched. They seem exhausted from hatching, but after 12 hours they are spending more time standing and eating. I love chicks.

I've always wondered.... how do they get enough air to chirp in there? We need pix!

I have 3 baby ducks in a rubbermaid brooder in my dining room. :-)

Yeah, yeah yeah... Where is that camera? Probably the same place I left it 6 months ago.

Critter keeps her camera at the ready.
