Bitties are growing

Our first chicks of the year are growing fast and their fuzz has turned to pin feathers.  Of the three, two are alive and well.  The little white one got under the grit pan when mom was scratching in the floor material and then he couldn’t get out.  By the time I found her she was gone.  😦   The other two are growing fast and forage all over the farm just like Mom.DSCN5117

In about 10 more days, we’ll have another hatch by this lady.

Black Americana hen that was born last year.  She has 10 eggs under her and we're hoping for a larger hatch than Crow had.

Updates later and watching for the next broody mother.
