    I just went out to get eggs & heard peeping.. I couldn't resist so I gently lifted momma hen up and there were 3 little angels.. One all fuzzed up and 2 wet.. 4 more left.. I blocked the coop off to give her some quiet for rest of the day. Moved her food/water right up to her in the box and she stretched her poor neck out and scarffed it down.. Mr. Fluff peeked his head out while she was eating, so of course he (or she) needed a photo opt..

    IM SO FRICKIN EXCITED!! These babies are on day 19/20!!!!

    Here are our 3 babies so far.. Im in LOVE.. 2 are AmericanaX and 1 is a RIR chick!!!
