On exactly the predicted hatch date, Fluffy Mama, our most reliable sitter and mother, is hatching eggs! Just one chick so far.
See how the hen’s wings are sticking out? That’s her way of saying, “If you so much as breathe on my baby, I will take your eye out.” And I believe her. She’d certainly give it her best attempt. So baby gets left alone.
While Mama gets a quick bite to eat, the new baby ducks into the aforementioned chick hut for cover from the feeding frenzy.
Mama is not done sitting yet. I only let her have a few eggs this time as we’ve had a lot of very cool nights. We’ll have a final headcount in the morning.
One thought on “New Baby!”
That is so awesome!!!
