New Additions...

With the new year there comes some new additions to 'Darling Downs'.... One of my laying hens went clucky about 3 weeks ago on 6 eggs. After checking on her yesterday I found 2 little chicks already hatched and a few more with cracked shells just waiting to come out....
After my devastation with the Fox a little while back this really was a blessing....

Take Care..... Jodie.....
