While we’re talking about farm animals, here are some not so great pictures of the baby chicks.
It is so hard to get a picture of them because the mom and dad try to keep them hidden from us. This is Thelma, the dad, trying to position himself between me and the babies. Two black ones and a gray one which I believe, technically, is considered to be “splash” colored. He’s the cutest little thing.
Probably this week there will be more babies. Louise has been setting . . again. I’m not sure what’s up with her though. There were 2 eggs under her and she had been on the next for over 2 weeks. This morning when I went out there, she’s moved to the far right nest, where the little chicks are in this picture and there are no eggs in that first nest where she had been setting. Is there any way she moved the eggs? I’m kinda baffled about this but I don’t dare mess with her.
