    This is Dovey, one of my bantam hens,she hatched 4 out of 5 eggs on the 28th. I've never had bantams so young before...they are so freaking tiny. [​IMG] She's a good mom for only being 8 months old.
    I've been crazy busy around here, ducks & chickens hatching... lots of excitement. I love it though, nothing like a bunch of babies to keep me busy & sane lol.
    We finally got some rain & I feel alot better now. [​IMG]

    Thanks yall, Dovey is a sweety & I'm not certain of her breed.She looks like a little dove so that's how she got her name.
    Dovey isn't too happy being penned up. We have alot of cats around,so I don't feel comfortable letting them out yet.
