new arrivals for the new year...

peeps in the winter greenhouse
The silky hen did her job and hatched ten of the twelve eggs she was sitting on. She's now showing them the ways of the world, escorting them around the greenhouse, looking for bugs and other tender morsels. Another hen has decided she would like to start her own family, and after giving her a few eggs she immediately settled down into that oddly determined, glassy-eyed, nearly hypnotic state they get when brooding. Good times.

Happy New Year, Kathleen; I think the photo of your fluffy family is a nice way to start!

They are adorable, but babies in January?? Yikes - must be plenty toasty in the greenhouse. Thanks for the cute picture! :)
