Wonders Of Life
I am sure you are tired of looking at chicken pictures and barn pictures but I had to show you this one.
Under this hens wing is a baby chick that just hatched this morning. You can hardly see it with just it's head barely sticking out. This baby is not just any normal chick. If it was I wouldn't be telling a story about it.
The baby is a miracle baby for two reasons. First, this little hen has been setting on half a dozen eggs for about 25 days and with only two left due to the snakes, Saturday we almost through them out. The wife decided to give the eggs a couple of more days before throwing in the towel. Second, last night this little chick while still in the egg, was one foot down in a snakes belly. I saw the egg come right up and out of the snakes mouth when I was dragging it out the door. The egg was all cracked and disfigured but the hen decided to go back and sit on it. I told the wife to throw the last two eggs away in the morning.
I don't know if they will make it till adulthood or not but I tell you this, they both hatched and they will stay here till they die.
More chicken pics you say........
Here are the rabbits.
I got in a fight with this one and she won.
I have all the scratches down my arm to
This is what will be the cricket farm when it's all set up.
