    I bought groceries, came home and sat down with the chickies - next day all non-perishable groceries were still in sacks in the kitchen floor!!! [​IMG]

    My son and I sat in the coop this evening staring at the broody hen waiting for her to raise up and give us a glimpse of the hatching process. Several visitors joined us - but also mentioned that we were just a bit obsessed [​IMG]

    As of last light we had one hatched and at least 3 in various stages.
    [​IMG] Can't wait 'til MORNING!!

    First hatch for us. I love having a hen do all the work - but envy the view y'all get with a bator.

    Oh yeah - totally forgot to get groceries or fix dinner. OOPS

    Dinner-schminner, my chicks NEED me to sit with them!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] Today I sat with my oldest set of chicks and everyone cuddled with me and stuck right next to 'mom'. My dogs were contentedly chewing on bones, the sun was shining, and I was out in the field snoozing with my chicks. LOVED it!!!! I need a hammock this summer, to really relax with the chick-chicks!!!
