new additions // the farm life

Caroline is now our resident-chick-hatcher, and after three weeks of patient care, we have new additions to our constantly changing flock of poultry. 

Right now we have two perky cheepers in the brooder boxes downstairs - a Barred Rock named "Pimpernel" and a black Americana named "Mr. Fernando." One chick, affectionately dubbed Little Guy for the few hours he lived, hatched a few days too early, and sadly didn't survive. There's another little one who hatched last night who is currently nameless, with a few others due to pip today or tomorrow. **edit: the chick has been dubbed "Doodly Squawk". Not joking.**

Currently, the three hatched chickies are living in the schoolroom bathroom…no, in case you were wondering, there's never a dull moment in this house.
