And the birds? That would be my Mama Hen and the three little chicks, now just a day away from two weeks old. She is taking them all over the yard, causing me no end of distraction and I despair of them ever reaching a decent age---I am so afraid of disaster---they are so tiny!!! Actually, it is tons of fun to watch them. They leap up on things, chase after each other, scratch like Mama and peep constantly! I still won't name them until I find out if they are cockerels or pullets. Because I am determined to raise the cockerels for the table. Wonder if I can do it?
