Baby chicks!

It's been almost two weeks now since our baby chicks hatched!  Meet Lady Ambrosia and Penelope.  It is so incredible to see a chick wriggle out of it's shell.  Believe me, it looks like hard work.  My daughter's New Hampshire Red bantam went all "broody" on us, so we got 2 surrogate eggs from the 4-H leader for her to sit on; one a Buttercup and the other a Black Sumatra.  This picture was taken at 6 days old.  What a fun experience to see mama hen take care of her chicks and show them what's what.  I feel like I live on a farm! (Part of me wishes I did.)

Take time to enjoy something fun today!
