It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

No, not Christmas Time. The other most wonderful time of the year - hatching baby chicks. Yes, Betty went broody all the way back in February, but it was just too cold to try and hatch at that time. Well she stayed broody so the beginning of March I put some eggs under her. Low and behold between Thursday and Saturday we had four precious little chicks. I had to pay a pet sitter to come in and check up on them because we were out of town for much of the hatching. We are looking forward to more hatching once another bird goes broody.

How cute are they, I could spend all day watching them and their antics. They all have such individual little characters xxx
