    Sweetpea did her reliable broody thing again, and despite me swiping the eggs from her every time I found her little secret, she persisted and laid them under the pallet I use for the coop steps where I couldn't get to them without dismantling things. I figured she deserved to keep them at that point.

    She hatched them out last Saturday, the same day my sis and family arrived for a visit. Yes, she knows how to get top billing! Sweetpeas new chicks 003.JPG


    That's my bantam Cochin rooster, proud pops!

    My first thought was that Sweetpea was the moose in the avatar photo. Really threw me for a loop when you started egg stealing from the "reliable" moose mother. It wasn't until the moose started hiding under the pallet that I straightened my head, uncrossed my eyes, and read the post again. Congrats!

    How wonderful! They all look so happy! I look forward to the day that I can have chickens that have never traveled in the mail truck!
