|Sweetiepie, the first hatched.|
Later, there was a pip. Even later, another! I could hardly sleep with all that going on in there.
Then, at 4:23am, I woke to the loudest peeping I'd ever heard. A chick had hatched! By 8:00am, day 23, another emerged.
By night fall, I had 5 chicks. I called them Deadbirdie, Deanie, Jackdaw, Gracie, and Sweetiepie. They were the most beautiful chicks I had ever seen.
Day 24, two more hatched. They were Sally Sussex and Clicket. Sally was a speckled Sussex. Clicket had trouble breathing and died in the night. *moment of silence* The rest were okay as far as I could tell. I love them all. I held them on my lap today while reading a blog about chicks. Well, I'd better go play with them. By!

Soon I will write about....I don't know yet, but I'll think of something. :)
I think I may start another blog, which doesn't mean I'm abondoning this one.
