The Country Diary of a GenX Woman

New Babies

2012-04-23 14.13.00Our neighbours offered to hatch some chicks for us when we told them we were getting chickens. A number hatched on Easter Sunday (appropriately). Only 2 survived with a couple getting out of the coop and disappearing and a cat getting another when it got into the coop. We picked them up at 2 weeks old and they caught one of the mama bantams to look after the babies. She is so beautiful, with the most amazing markings on her feathers.
