    That Time I Rescued Those Eggs.......
    Its really quite interesting how animals show up in your life sometimes. Well I'll spare you the long story, but to sum it up, i rescued these 3 eggs from my friends house that we were house sitting for. There were a number of hens in one nesting box with like 5 eggs, each time an egg would hatch a hen would kill the chick. So after seeing the 5th chick murdered i took the remaining 5 eggs home. However, 2 of them were no good so i tossed those, leaving me my 3 eggs. I put them in a cardboard box with my desk lamp, and a sponge. They all hatched sucsesfully. Leaving me with 3 cute Bantie chicks. I fell in love with them, and my friend said i could keep them. Then I got my mom to let me keep them also. After wanting chickens for years, this is how I ended up with them. Im so glad I have my chickens. I love them so much!

    These are the 3 eggs I spent hours staring at, trying to decide weather they were moving or not. Of corse they did and when they stopped I hoped they were just taking a nap .....

    Meet My Other Pets :

    This is Shadow, he found us in a lightning storm. We decided that we loved him more than whoever had staved and abandon him. (Although we did put up signs) So we kept him. :)
