five

Five new baby chicks this morning.  And one good mama chicken.

I am very pleased.

The other mama hen is hatching her babies right now.  So far we have two and at least one slowly cracking egg. It kills me not to watch every second.

God's creation is so amazing!  It's so unbelievable that that egg and that mama made new life.  How can anyone believe it's an accident?

  5. Oh yeah, way different.

    Sadly, it looks as though Jack (the rooster who went to live in the woods) probably had a hand in the making of these chicks, so it's hard to say how they'll turn out exactly.

  7. well, immediately after hatching, they're all wet and kind of uncuddly looking (see Bedste's posts on chickenchat blog), but after they dry off, then yes.
