Remember last year.. when the raccoons came, while we were on vacation? Well, if you don't they ate our whole little cornfield! Well, not this year! We finally gave in, bought, and put up an electric fence. We tried the music thing, with no luck. But, NO more coons! Now, don't worry too much, it will not kill any of them... just give them a little zap!
They were being a little camera shy! We will get more pictures later..
These are just some pictures! When we move them to their bigger quarters next week, more pictures will come! They are so darn cute though. There are seven of them... but, some were under Momma Rosie. She is such a great mother!
Remember, Momma Rosie laying on 16 eggs? Well so far we have two baby chicks (that just hatched) and I have a feeling more will hatch tonight! But, it's too dark to take pictures, tonight. Pictures will come in the next few days, promise. Anyway, the first one that hatched is rust color like Rosie and the other is black! We are so excited!
There is a wonderful giveaway over at a neighboring blog, "Life on a Southern Farm," that YOU need to check out! The giveaway is for a two hole HensPal Nest Box, made by a Georgia farmer. They also have a wonderful blog and lots of good reads! Go on and take a gander... http://georgiafarmwoman.blogspot.com/
