New Addition To the Farm

A couple days ago, I found one of my Marin hens on a nest inside my front hedge.  I had no idea how many days she was out here.  But after seeing the condition of the eggs, quite a number of days.
Last night I brought her into hen house with the eggs.  At 11:00 p.m. #1 chick hatched.
She kept peeping and peeping, so I put one of Collin and Carli's stuffed toys in the box and she fell right to sleep.
  This morning 3 more have hatched with 8 eggs left to go.  To watch them being born, is a joy and wonder to behold.

Total of 3 of the black colored chicks like their Marin mother. 1 yellow/white one like the White Rock Rooster.Will keep you posted as to the final count. Spring has arrived at Windmill Farm.
