Baby Chicks

Three weeks ago one of our hens started to get broody.  She had some eggs tucked under her and she was bound and determined to sit on them.  In the past when faced with these situations we simply pulled the eggs out from under the chicken and moved on.

For some reason this time we decided to let her attempt to hatch the eggs…hey, we can always use more eggs and for that we need more chickens, right?  So, today — right on queue — we came home to the sound of two baby chicks happily tucked away underneath their proud mama.

There is a third egg still remaining, so we’ll see if it hatches too, but for now I figured I would share the first photos of the new additions to our family.
