I Have A Baby Chick!

Look what I found yesterday! A baby chick! And it was born on my Uncle Williams birthday!
These two amaze me......this is a little over the second year that I've had these girls and they've gone broody on me both years. It's funny how they have this worked out. They are both bantams, the one on the right always goes broody first. A week later the one on the left goes and they each will have their own brood box, THEN about a week before hatch time the one on the left (that went broody a week later) will switch over to her sisters box....isn't that a hoot! I just take and put the eggs in with both of them. They are such wonderful little moms. If you look close you can see they have a little egg on them due to the egg fight ;o) I guess they figure they'll help each other out with the big bullies and raising the peeps.

I tried to get a picture of the top of it's head, it has two spots one yellow and one white, curious to see what "she'll" look like. She's pretty big to be less than 24 hours old.

I completed my pond in my front yard. I thought I had already posted pictures but I guess not. Everything here I grew, had laying around or it was given to me. I can't help myself, if I think someone doesn't want something anymore and they might throw it out, my mind goes in high gear trying to dream up a way I can use it. The elephant ear leaf, frog and lily pad stepping stones I made. Those tennis shoes were mine, one had a hole in the bottom so I made planters out of them.

I hope you have a wonderful day.
