A Week in Farm Photos - April - May 4th

This week our Australorp, Annie, hatched four chicks from eggs provided by Chicken Scratch Poultry.  We have a new Coronation Sussex, a bantam Chocolate Orpington, and two Blue Ameraucanas plus an Olive Egger hatched from one of our eggs.  It has been fascinating watching Annie care for the chicks with very little help from us. Barely a week old and she's already had them outside for their first outing.  Enjoy some photos of Annie and the chicks.....

  6. I love to see peeps being raised by a momma. It will be fun to see if they are different when they are mature.
