Chick Update

​We are happy to announce that Mama Skunk, our 1 year old mottled cochin bantam hen, is the proud Mama to 12 chicks. (Mama and chicks are all doing well!)  After looking at the photos and video, you might be wondering why all of the chicks look so different.  Well…Mama Skunk likes to “borrow” eggs from the other nesting boxes and lead us to believe they are her own.  She is an expert at carrying eggs under her wings.  Although Skunk thinks she has us fooled, we are much wiser than that.

Due to the aggressive nature of roosters, we raise only a few male breeds on the farm.  We have 4 Silkie roosters and 1 Porcelain D’Uccle, who is quite the stud muffin!  I would like to introduce the Daddies…

It is amazing to think that in just 21 days a baby chick is born into our World.  For me, life is truly a series of a thousand, or at least 12, tiny miracles.  Every day holds the possibility that anything can happen. Take a moment today to stop and notice those tiny miracles in disguise.  They have the ability to alter your thinking and change your world.

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…

  1. Congrats for sure! How special.
    Happy for you!
    As a child in the 1960’s, I recall having chicken eggs in an incubator on the kitchen counter. Then one day, we had chicks I do not recall them ever growing up. I suppose they were given to my grandparents farm. They sold eggs, honey, veggies…..
    Nice post and thanx for sharing….
