    Today is my birthday. I went home for lunch and ...the chicks are hatching. The chicks should have hatched on the 19th (they are under a hen so no my incubator is not on the blink). I had about given up on them but as she was still setting, I was loathe to take her eggs out from under her. Four precious little ones and three eggs left to go. Hmmm....life just doesn't get much better. I just had to share it with someone.

    Silkies - they are sweet little silkies. I will try and attach a picture (if I can figure out how) but it is just something I snapped with my cell phone. But yes, I am besotted with them.
