just in time for easter

perfect little chick

one perfect little black baby chicken was peeking out from beneath the broody hen this morning. clearly one of the swedish black hens sneaked her egg onto the nest, because this is definitely a swedish black and not a little brown danish chick. mama has two more eggs that she's working on. i've moved them from the flock into their own space with a heat lamp. and here i thought that hen was too stupid and unfocused to make it work. nature is pretty amazing.

the little feather ball knew that it was Easter week and thought it a good time to arrive. You know it was thinking it would get top billing on your blog!
