Baby Chicks

Yesterday I was out watching the baby chicks. There’s never a time when I’m out there that watching their little fluffy butts and their activities make me smile and sometimes laugh out loud.

This mom has one baby so she must be babysitting one of the three from the bantams. She’s teaching them to scratch for bugs.

Scratch a little and stand back and watch for bugs that may have been uncovered. It’s so cute to watch those babies. They’ll scratch a little but mostly they just stand there and look to see what the mom digs up.

It’s hard to believe that with these chickens running loose, all four babies have survived but so far, they have.

The Big Fig Tree

This winter was so mild that our big fig tree didn’t freeze back and it is huge.

I was hoping that you could get an idea of it’s size by seeing the coop off to the left and the big oak tree in the background.

There must be a million or more green figs on it.

I know . . don’t count your chickens before they hatch . . we could still have a hail storm or a massive grasshopper infestation but for now, I’m holding out for an amazing crop of figs!
