    I just went to check on the mommas. I heard peeps! PEEPS! The eggs aren't due to hatch till Monday, maybe Tuesday but I heard peeps and saw at remains of at least one shell. Baby chicks! I'm so excited. [​IMG]

    Thank you, CVA. I just went to close the hen house and heard another peep from the other nest. There's at least one other baby in there. This is so cool. [​IMG]
