The Newest Member of our Flock!
We had a wonderful surprise at lunch today! A new chick had hatched out sometime this morning! We are anticipate some more soon - you can expect more pictures when the others arrive.
My Beloved decided to put a few of our Buff Oprington's eggs under a couple of our Rhode Island Red's who had "gone broody" and try to hatch them. Well, success is her name today! We are excited about having a few more Buff's. They are good natured birds and beautiful to see. It is truly a miraculous process to witness. Shortly after I took this photo the little one worked its way under the proud mother hen and took a nice little nap. Talk about a precious thing to see! If you're in town, stop in and see our new addition!
