Fresh from the egg
Fresh from the egg
This chick broke through his shell enough to cheep at me while still inside. I peeled away most of it. He spent the first half hour or so of (post-egg) life on my stomach as I sat on the back porch and read a book, but eventually I put him back in the box that the broody hen used to incubate her eggs. The next morning he was following her around the yard with his brothers and sisters. I used the male pronoun, but I have no clue as to the sex of this chicken.

I'd really love to go back to living on a farm. Maybe when the kids grow up. The kids get their farm fix by visiting their grandmother once a week, but I'm stuck in the city. I'm very envious of you :)
