If you read earlier blogs, you heard about the tragic end of "Annie" our beloved pet chicken that was killed by our boss'es killer rat terrier's - they are now off the property, but not too soon. Anyway, we saved some of annie's eggs and put them under a ranch hen that went to sitting and lo and behold, we have 3 of Annie's kids. Wasn't easy though - the first egg hatched and the ants attacked the mom and baby - killed one baby and the other baby and mom bailed abandoning the eggs, so Ron brought them in and put them under a lamp and can you believe tha 3 of them hatched in the middle of the night - the pictures are the progression of one of them coming out of the egg - what a miracle.  We can't let the mother hen have them because too many cats on the property, so Ron brings them in out of their cage every night. They are adorable!

MAY THE CHICKEN BE WITH YOU AND ANNIE IS REBORN!
