I came home from work to find two new little black chicks bouncing around the box with (step-)Mom! They´re already done? Time flies!
I came back later with a camera and it was a different story. Nothing to see here. The chicks were stowed. She has one more egg too.
Mom´s looking good. She´s had time to regrow her feathers during her confinement.
I had to coax and poke and weather firm chicken growling to get a peek at a chick. Oh! There´s a little head.
They are as big and as lively as a week-old Silkie chick (these are Ameracaunas- they´re going to grow up to have cheeks!)
Time to break out the chickery:)
Also this evening I unexpectedly took receipt of four gorgeous Brahma hens. They are large, and serene, and sweet! So lovely. They were taken directly to bed, and we´ll get to see them tomorrow:)
