Yes I am so excited! Thank you God for miracles!
This morning when I went out to feed and water the chickens I found this little site. I almost walked out of the pen without looking because I had bothered these hens so much lately. Funny thing is these hens and their eggs have changed hands or should I say feet so many times...sometimes they would be up in the nest, sometimes some of the eggs would be on the floor, different counts too...Silkies are a funny breed...they're a sharing breed though. You see the broken egg for this chick is on the floor under another hen and yet the chick is up with this hen in a nest...
Yesterday Carly and the grandsons came over and we looked in and saw one of the hens turning her eggs. It was such a cute site to see her do this with her beak.
This is an especially tiny chick. The pictures make it seem as if they are gray but they do have a lavender tint. I can't wait to see how large it will grow to be. I am told they are a full size chicken but they are a small breed.
I also can't wait to clean out this little hen house it is so dirty. These hens have been hogging the pen for over two months they stay broody...
I will keep you informed as to any other hatches we may have...they are sitting on several more eggs still....now I have to go to the feed store and get some starter grower feed!!!!
I'll leave you with a few more pictures...Have a great day!
