    I went out to do morning goat and chicken stuff and found these little chicks peeking out from under a hen house

    About a week and a half ago (or so) I found my Silkie/B. Brahma cross brooding a clutch of eggs. They hatched sometime between last night and this morning. They are going to be a mix of an Ameraucana bantam rooster, an EE rooster and who knows how many of my 27 multi and mixed breed laying hens added to the clutch.

    I'm excited to see how they turn out!
    Here is the hen house I found them under

    What a find! Finding chicks is better than finding a diamond! Congratulations!
