Happy Birthday Little One

This is not one of the best pictures, and I hope to take better ones tomorrow. Today, on my birthday, this little chick was born. One of our chickens stopped laying eggs and started brooding, which is really common in the spring, and she would sit on eggs constantly. Concerned that this cycle would not stop and she would get weaker and weaker we found some fertilized eggs for her and she has happily kept them warm. Today this little chick was born and I helped another one come out of a partially cracked egg, what an amazing experience. I am just amazed at the instincts of our bantam chicken, she was raised by us in a little box but she totally knows what to do and is so gentle and attentive. Nature rules.
