I keep imagining I'll have friends drop by to visit, excuse themselves to use the restroom and be shocked to discover it is being used as a nursery for baby chicks!!!
One of Napoleon Dynamite's girls, Josephine, started sitting on a clutch of eggs over 3 weeks ago and one of them popped open on Friday morning, then we had another one pop open this morning!!! Now Josephine has 2 little peepers! She is still sitting on 3 of her own eggs and one of the red girls eggs that we slipped under her!
We were so excited to have the new babies that we went to our favorite chicken supply place and bought 4 Americauna chicks! This is the variety that lays pale green eggs and the hens grow to enormous and regal sizes!
