New blessing…..

One of our laying hens apparently went broody on us, and she did a good job of hiding her nest.  The children went out this morning to gather eggs, and guess what….

10 new chicks hatched by a momma, instead of the machine that we’ve been using.  We’ll of course put momma and the babies in a good tight chicken “tractor” to protect them from the roaming beasts at night, but still give them plenty of fresh grass and bugs to learn to peck at.  We’ve not been having a high enough success rate with the incubator this year, even after adding the fan, and the humidity meter.  This is a very nice surprise.  It’s great when God blesses us in unexpected ways!

 

Until next time…..
