    Alabama, And I hate it !
    They are 4 days old here. She has 7 babies. I took this pic of them just after she got in her nest for the night. She is an excellent mom and so sweet. she has never pecked at me and lets me hold her babies whenever. This is the first time she has hatched eggs and is a first time experience for me too. She is only 8 months old and is doing a perfect job. I worry about the heat here it is allways in the high 90's today it was 99 and no telling what the heat index was.
