Mean Chicken is so happy . . she has a nest full of babies!
This is the first one that was hatched and he’s so alert and cute! He looks around at everything and is full of energy. Yesterday a second little Dominique baby hatched.
When we got back from Abilene yesterday, we went to check and two more had hatched, another little Dominique and a Silky bantam.
It must have just hatched because it was still kinda damp.
Mean Chicken is getting nicer, or maybe she’s just tired . . late night feedings for four babies . . oh, wait . . she doesn’t have to do that.
Can you find three babies? Mean Chicken isn’t growling at me but look at her feathers all bristled up. She’s definitely uncomfortable with me handling the babies but she’s still nicer than Louise, the silky, is when she has babies.
