We had three little chicks born overnight. Mother hen has been roosting for the last month and three of them hatched today. Quite beautiful little chicks . . . if I do say so. What do you think?
We lost 5 chickens due to the sudden swing in heat last week (20 degree swing up to 110 degrees this week). Three more entered the world this morning . . . the amazing cycle of life continues.

The cycle of life I reckon, death and birth. They look adorable. It’s hard to make out, are they Rhode Island Reds?
Australorp father and Rhode Island Red mother. I’ll get some better shots. My wife took this one for me on my way in to the office.
