Baby Chicks

Dear Friends,
 
Three brand new baby chicks are here !!!  What a surprise!!! I knew  "little Jewel" was sitting on 2 eggs in the goat barn, but I didn't think she would sit still long enough to hatch an egg.  She hatched 3!!!


"Jewel" is not like the other chickens.   A couple of years ago she came walking up the driveway.  I fed her and she stayed.  I've heard of stray dogs and cats wandering up but never a little hen!


I named her "Jewel".  She watches me and follows me around.  If she wants out of the chicken lot before I let the others out, she flies over the fence! 





It was beautiful here today.  Warm and sunny.  A good day for baby chicks. 

Love,
Henny Penny

  1. Dear Henny Penny,
    Jewel's chicks are just the sweetest little things. I wish my city kids knew what a baby chick felt like in their hand, or how fresh straw has a pleasant smell like no other.
    That's a pretty special story about how Jewel came to be yours. The creatures must have a sense that your place is a good place for them too. :0

    Love,
    Jen

    1. Dear Jen,
      Wish I could give them a baby chick...I would. It is funny about the creatures showing up at our place. When I worked, it was a joke around the office about bringing all the little needy animals to Melba, she will take care of them. One day 2 baby Starlins fell out of the nest over the loading dock. A worker brought them to me. Poppy and I raised those 2 birds. I'll have to find a picture to post. Thank you, Jen.
      Love,

  2. Dear Henny Penny,
    Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. To be known by one's peers as such a one, is an honor indeed.
    Thanks for posting this inspirational story.

    Blessings of peace and love,
    Jen
