a few months back, i lost my pilgrim gander to a bobcat attack. shortly after that, the girls started to lay and went broody. i couldn't stand to see all their hard work go for nothing, so a friend gave me a few chinese x eggs and i bought a few pilgrim eggs and slipped 'em under the girls under cover of darkness one night. this morning, as i was making my rounds, i came across this in one nest: upon further investigation, i found these little guys: just look at that face! *sighs* i'm in love all over again!
