Chicken Chronicles PART II

APRIL FOOL S
Three Ducklings have been added to the brood! They seem to be mingling well...

We have one runty, little Hen that needed some help...we woke up on     DAY 2  and found her layed over on her side unable to stand!   I decided to try feeding her with a syringe and for 2 days my son and I took turns force feeding every two hours...  it was exhausting, but a LABOR OF LOVE...

Im HAPPY to report that on DAY 4 we woke to find Lil Bit standing in the feed trough pecking away!  She's much smaller than her sisters but seems to be holding her own!


My Husband refers to her as THE PROMISE ONE...
By the way...they are still living in a blue, plastic swimming pool in my living room!   COOP to come saith HE...
