We Have Some New Babies!

>> Sunday, May 3, 2009

Early in April one of our Light Bramha hens became broody and I put nine eggs under her in a small enclosure I built some time ago.  She sat on those eggs diligently for three weeks.  Friday morning I heard peeping sounds coming from under the hen.  When I checked I found that we had 5 new babies.  One poor little chick never made it out of the shell and 3 eggs did not hatch for whatever reason.  The little ones seem to be doing quite well.
