New babies in the house...

There are new babies in the house...six fluffy peeping day-old bundles of feathery down.  Sleeping in our living room near the woodstove, in a large box lined with bran, with an old wool sock as a bed, and a heat lamp for extra warmth.  And a little "mother hen" constantly watching them carefully, attentive to their every need. Their names: Star, Blackberry, Stella, Sam, Daisy and Buttercup. Now it feels like spring is finally here!

  1. So sweet! I love their names - we used to have a Buttercup too!
