    Today is an exciting day! It's hatch day and I am trying to wait nicely, lol. Just wanted to share my little family with everyone. Anyone who cares to take a guess of pullets or roos in regards to my preteens I would love it!

    Here we have Romeo roo and Mia (who soon became Momma Mia, lol)

    We got peeps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    How many I don't know. I lifted momma up on her side once and even though I was expecting it I was surprised to see a precious TINY peep looking right at me. [​IMG]

    I exploded in joy! Funny how exciting it is for us humans [​IMG] I did catch a glimps of some unhatched eggs so it's still happening as I type. I tried to look again but Lucy is having none of that. Most likely because it is SOOOOOOOOOO cold out! I have a heat lamp of course but no more peeking for me right now.[​IMG]

    Oh I hope I hope I hope for 6 more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you. I am so loving this family raising backyard happiness!!!!!! I love the way the momma "talks" to her babies. When the other two were babies and I would come with egg yolk she would stat talking to them and picking up the yolk and putting it down in front of them and talk some more. I love this so much! Pictures tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!
