New Hatchlings

Remember the fertilized eggs we placed under Marla the day before you left? Well, true to nature, 21 days later, three little chicks pecked their way out of their shells. Here they are at 2 days old:

And just a few weeks later:

The picture outside the chicken run is blurry because they never sit still! They have had fun exploring on their short visits out of the run. Of course, they stay very close to their surrogate mom! She is doing a good job of teaching them all things “chicken”.
