We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Buttons: 1st Hatchling 1 Week Old






Buttons was the first hatchling last Saturday. Often people ask; how can I tell the chicks apart. Each beak coloration and feather (downy) spots are different plus, personality helps this chicken mom. Topsy our cat is not warmly welcomed for her curiosity here. Buttons is squawking and running for safety. Next hatch will be Saturday before Easter Sunday; we have another 48 in the incubator.

What fun it must be to have hatchlings. Good luck with your next batch!

We are expecting more chicks any day as several of our hens are missing in action. Can't find their nests but I know they are setting (sitting) (hatching), whatever...we are looking for more babies. Hi, my friend.
