I STILL have not found my camera (BUMMED) and now we have two new chicks that hatched from under the broody silkie. OH THEY ARE ADORABLE! Even more so seeing them under their mommy. Well she is not THEIR real mommy but she is a mommy to them. They are hiding under her right now but the one that hatched last night is getting brave now and showing himself to us for a few seconds before zooming back under mom. This is my first time witnessing this and I'm thrilled. Also thrilled that my dad got to see it because he wanted to see that. He said well, I'm shocked that she did it! LOL I am too since they are three days late I was beginning to give up hope. I was going to toss the eggs tomorrow if they hadn't hatched yet. I knew they would be a little late as this was her first time trying to hatch out eggs and she wasn't the best at it. We found them both outside the nest twice and she couldn't get them back in so we put them in for her. It prob slowed them down a bit. I'm going to try to get a video of this...we still have our video camera so on my day off WED I am going to do that.
I have to get ready for work now so I will chat at you guys tomorrow. I DID get to the gym again today too :D Tomorrow is another day and I will make it there then too. I lost 4 lbs so far even eating what I want to eat :D It's worth it!
