Some of y'all asked for an update on the baby chicks. They are 2 weeks old now. When they were a couple days old one of the yellow ones died. Then about a week ago, the other yellow one disappeared completely. I'm not sure what happened to it, maybe a snake?
The other 2 are growing and seem to be doing very well. They are so pretty. Mama hen lets us pick them up and hold them, but if another chicken comes near, she goes off on them. It's really funny to see! She's a good protector. I love it when she fluffs out like this.
