Clucking Away

Yes, I have become a complete weirdo but I just love how these little chicks see me as their mama.  Usually, when I urge them to try something to eat, one or two duck under my hand and hang out in the curve of my palm, almost like they are trying to snuggle close while they check out what I am offering.  So far, they have discovered greek yogurt (they liked it) and chick feed (they love it) and bits of green weedy things pulled from my seedlings (they fight over it and chase each other peeping madly).  In the next couple of days, more chicks should be hatching.  I can't wait to teach the new arrivals how delicious life is.  Tuck-tuck-tuck-tuck!


  1. Cute. I am ordering another chicken raising book from our library today. I heard it has good recipes that you can make from scratch. Although I have raised chickens for about 5 years or so, I love to learn new things. I however, have never hatched my own (yet).
