    Rosemary and Ellie are my Belgium Bearded Mom's! They arrived as day-old chicks this past Valentine's Day. Two weeks ago my son, Cameron, found them sitting on a nest of 20 eggs in our rosemary bushes. Out of the 10 that hatched, they are co-parenting the remaining 7 (sadly 3 were killed by fire ants). The four yellow chicks must be NHxBelgium crosses, and the 3 black chicks are pure Belgium. They are 4 days old today!
