Our Buckeye hen finally has her little chicks - after 21 long days of constant motherly care over her eggs! She is so patient with them. When it gets cold she clucks to them and gently shoves them under her with her beak. The chicks are learning to take dust-baths, look for bugs, eat, drink and all the other things they need to learn. I think it is so amazing how God's creation works - how a little puddle of goo can turn into a live chick! And how a mamma hen knows how to sit on the eggs for the right amount of time - she knows if an egg is bad and she'll push it out of her nest - then she knows how to care for the chicks when they come out of their eggs - how to teach them to do all they need to know. With their tiny little brain, yet they are perfectly equipped to do all they should.
