Welcome to the Farm!
Exciting things are happening here today. Little Shadow, our Bantam hen is still on her nest. She’s my favorite chicken because she’s so sweet and even tempered – and a good mama.
Hannah’s chores include feeding and watering the Bantys each night. Tonight she came racing into the house to announce she found a broken egg shell in Shadow’s nesting box.
I grabbed my camera, and we went to take a look. Sure enough, we lifted Shadow’s wing and there was this little peep!
As curious about us as were were about her, she popped up for a closer look.
She looks so happy to be here!
