So guess what, I gots baby chickens! Back in June my chicken Lady Gaga went broody. Basically that means she starts stealing all the eggs and sitting on them. She wanted to be a mom. The only problem is that we gots no rooster, so all that work Lady Gaga was doing was for nothing! So we gots 6 eggs from a farm so that Lady Gaga could be a surrogate mom. (Lady is grumpy because I guess eggs aren't comfy when you sits on them?)
So she sat on the eggs for what was suppose to be 21 days. But on Day #19! The first little monster was born.
Come the morning 4/6 eggs were hatched and when Dad gots home the first chick had jumped it's barrier and was running around the coop with the rest of the adult chickens - NOT GOOD. Fortunately the chick wasn't hurt and we moved Lady and the 4 babies to a temporary coop. Chick #5 had hatched but since Lady Gaga was running around with first chicken she had ignored it. So Chick #5 and Egg #6 came inside for the night. After 36 hours chick #6 didn't make it but Chick #5 was healthy as could be.
We reintroduced chick #5 to Lady Gaga and she pecked it! So after reading some stuff about it online at nighttime the hoomans snuck the 5th chick under Lady Gaga when she was sleeping. The next morning she had 5 babies instead of 4 and happy as could be. Chickens are stoopid, they can't count. Meet the babies:
Chicken #1 and #2
Chicken #3, #4, and #5
Lady Gaga and her babies, they are growing fast.
So I is raising more babies but I can't keeps them all. We can't keeps any if they are boys and we only have room for 2 girls. So, when they are older and we can tell what they are 3 babies will go to another family. Momma's favorite is the brown chick#5 so hopefully that is a girl :)
Oh and a picture of me cause this is my blog! Isn't my new snake stuffy pawesome!
