    I have had so many AWWWWWWWWwwwwwwwwwwwww moments with this lot in the last few days - I had to share.
    The little yellow baby is a bantam Japanese, the other little baby is a Speckled Sussex... Mom is proud.

    BUSTER - here's your baby!!

    [​IMG] You know if the Rooster is crowing in the background, my son is with me - The rooster won't crow - or not much if its just me outside, its my son being there that gets the rooster all in a flap!

    I was changing mom and babies water and food this morning, the babies were out and ALL the other chickens came over to have a look - even the rooster (he was trying to pretend to be doing something else) It was really cute - hens with their heads all tipped sideways! [​IMG]
