When I was in the Egg Layer Chicken yard this Sunday morning, 2 peeping, fuzzy, yellow chicks were scampering about-newly born. One devoted hen had been setting on those eggs for 21 days! I waited for the mother to claim and care for them. When she didn't, I scooped them up and relocated them to a chick brooder. What was MORE astonishing the next afternoon, 2 MORE chicks showed up! These very newly hatched babies were brown striped. All four can be held in one hand! Mother Nature.
