It's spring on our little homestead and that means new babies!
One of my last two remaining Black Silkie hens has been sitting on a nest of 8 eggs and now hatch day has finally arrived!
(Sorry about the fuzzy pictures-- the barn is kind of dark and the chicks are wiggly. I'll post better pics soon.)
Yesterday there was one tiny little chick (bantam babies are TEENY WEENY!) and today there are six! Still waiting on two more eggs. If/when they hatch, I'll be moving the little family to a larger and safer cage to keep the prowling cats away.
