Don't count your chickens...

Yesterday, we went out to feed the chickens and spied a small pair of eyes peeking out of Cotton Ball's feathers. Upon further inspection, we found that two chicks had hatched that morning. She will stay on the nest for a couple of days now to allow the other eggs some time to hatch. She had gathered up 11 eggs, but later decided to share some with Baby, our red hen who had joined her in the nest. There's no telling how many will actually hatch. That will have to be a future post!
