Here's my little new mother with her 5 chicks! (one is under her). Considering they have the same mother and father, I'm amazed at the variety. I had to move them on the back porch last night because of the flooding.
These guys were an adorable surprise. Hatched 2 days early! These are the eggs I got from Nikki. So sweet. 5 have hatched so far, I'm not sure if the 6th is going to hatch.
They're all white, except for one 'oops' baby, which I assume is the offspring of her half polish that was in the white pen. Still so so cute! He has foot feathering and black skin, but only 4 toes per foot and a recognizable polish shaped head. I'm sure he will be a cutie! Even my dad, who usually doesn't care about my birds, thinks that these chicks are the cutest he's seen
Oh, and we got 4 1/2 inches of rain last night. That plus the runoff from the pasture has brought our pond up to it's original 4 acre glory! It was wayyy down, maybe to only 2 or 3 acres.
