little lives all around us.







i have three ducklings and three chicks in the house that we received from our neighbors. my hen sasha just gave birth to four chicks and she is sitting on three more eggs. she rejected a chick this morning it is so tiny( pictures maybe another day) and is doing good under the heat lamp. this is so new to us but it is so lovely to watch. we could see the tiny beaks coming through the shell-miracle -it all feels like miracles. k. and i are amazed by the whole process and we are definitely acting like grandparents!

*the rooster is liev he was a gift from my neighbor we introduced him to sasha a gift from another neighbor- i guess at the farm you do not give a pie or a bottle wine when you move into the neighborhood!) but she was already knocked up with seven tiny eggs and it looks like many different fathers. but for a rooster he is so kind and has sat with her through most of her brooding and he is kind to the babies- ( sasha was already named so i named him liev)
*sorry about the bad pictures
