Our baby chicks began hatching on Tuesday, April 22 .. Earth Day! Thirteen hatched but one didn't make it. Mom is a very docile but protective hen. I just can't tell you how much cuter these little babies are in person, especially when you hold one to your cheek to enjoy their sweet fuzziness! The rooster is a "Dominique" (I incorrectly assumed he is a "Barred Plymouth Rock" and was corrected this morning by my darling husband!).
