Here is one of our sweet hens...
...she's been brooding & setting on at least a dozen eggs
for 3 weeks and yesterday hatched her first chick!
and here he (she?) is!!! Awwww,......
you can see some of her eggs-in-waiting under her...
and we can hear them 'peeping' in their eggs ~
telling us they're ready to join their sibling in the big bright world!!
but, what we didn't realize when we were taking these snaps,
is the OTHER little peeper up by her tail!
hahaha! stinker ~ didn't even know he (she?) was there :)))
...and here are two more sister-wives...
I guess they're sleeping double in a single bed!
they have both been setting on the same clutch of eggs for about 2 weeks now ~
we'll wait and see if they'll share parental duties as well!
and the rain is much needed for our gardens & hay fields.
