Baby Chicks.......

Well as excited as I am you would think that I hatched these cuties myself. The word 'grandma' has crossed my mind. These little sweeties were hatched sometime yesterday. The eggs were nestled under momma the night before & we had chicks the next day. Our momma hen hatched 5 of the most adorable little chicks. We had chicks this spring, but we used a heat lamp to keep them warm. This momma was one of our baby chicks this spring. In less than 6 months we have our very own little hatchlings. We are so excited to see Gods work unfold before our very eyes. The miracle of life is such a joy to see. Lincoln said it is so neat to see that the momma knew exactly what to do even though she made it in life her first few months with a heat lamp & not her real mother. I think that is neat too. I am so glad I get to share this journey of life with Lincoln. It is awesome to see his compassion & joy in experiencing life.

This is awesome! Do you know I have never seen a baby chick in real life? What a wonderful experience! Wish I lived closer so I could see in person!

Love you!

And suddenly I feel as if I know nothing. How long does this take? Do you gather your eggs every day or ? Tonight when I gathered, I found the most ever...nine! We have ten layers and two mean roosters. They both attack me and scare me to death! YIKES! xo, Cheryl

How sweet, Hope! Lincoln is very wise! Love those baby chicks! We are back from our trip to Barcelona and down a canal in Southern France. Jud and I had a great time. He is feeling pretty good, though weaker. I am so grateful to God for the time.
Love to you!

OH! I'm so jealous! I finally got to meet Suzanne's chicks (which are now big chickens!) last week. She said you had been emailing her. Chicken love! How exciting "grandma" -- for you and for Lincoln!
