Babies in the Coop

It has been very exciting at Miller Ranch the past few days. Two of my broody hens were busy keeping their eggs cozy and warm. Take a peek at what they gave us...


this sweet little chick is still in the shape of her egg...

now she looks like this...

then she was joined by another...


and another...


we're up to five babies with two left to hatch...


so sweet...

Laurie those are so special, thank you for sharing them.

Oh, how cute! I'd love to try and get mine to hatch eggs, but we still have no rooster. I love to hear a rooster crow, but for some reason Randy doesn't want a rooster! That would be rewarding to raise your own itty bitty chicks! karen

Hi, I followed you from Christine LeFever's blog. Your new babies are so cute and sweet!
We live in Idaho, and have family in OR and WA. Is your Barn House an annual event? I may have to ask to be dropped off on our way to visit the family!
