Babies, babies and more babies

Yesterday we had babies born! A dozen babies and their mama popped up and said look at me! It was real easy to catch them. I put the cat kennel down and babies started going in. The mam soon followed. I put the rest of the babies in there.As I put 2 in one would come out. AND everytime I put some in the mama would peck my hand! LOL Now there are all in the chicken pen safe and sound. They are using the kennel as a place to sleep. I have another hen setting. She is under a campertop. I do not know how many she has under her. I expect I have about another week. Anybody want any babies????

Speaking of babies. Today is kind of sad around here. One of Susie's babies may not make it.

  1. Congratulations!  That's a lot of babies at once...glad it's not me, LOL.

    Thanks for the card too!  I hope you and the family are doing well.  Be sure to send some of those veggies from your garden to Ohio.  Mmm, they looked so good.  Just don't mix it up with the "cat" mailing, I'm allergic.

  8. Celeste!  How beautiful!  You are an awesome grandma!  Though I can't care for them any more, I feel the twinge of chicken mom again.  Sad thing, we have coyotes, racoons and huge rats that love the little ones.  I loved having chickens, turkeys and quail when we were in Mexico.  We had a huge chicken coop with a special enclosure for the chicken that was sitting.  Most of  the time we let them run and "Red" would do some picken' of the chickens, LOL.  OMG! I've written a book.  Love and prayers, Penny  http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/FromHeretoThere

    The chicks look so cute and mama hen has that proud "Look at what I did!" look on her face.  I am so sorry to hear that one of Susie's babies might not make it.

  17. Wow. I'd love to have some, but I suspect the local zoning board would be unhappy with me. Congratulations, but I'm sorry about Susie's baby. Margo
