Here a chick, there a chick…


The chicks have started hatching here!

We got 11 last week, Black Copper Marans, Olive Eggers, Buff Polish Frizzles and Mille Fleur leghorns!

My son, who’s almost 20, is visiting this week. Getting some farm therapy before heading back to the real world and all the grown up decisions to make.  He mentioned that he loves the fact that I am ALWAYS excited about chicks hatching, like I haven’t seen it a million times.

He reminded me of the first time we (the 2 of us and my 3 girls) hatched eggs together and I had to search my memory to think of how long that’s been… almost 10 years!!

My babies we toddlers, now they’re teens. My Grammar schoolers were kids, now they’re adults…sigh.

Einstein said, “There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle, or you can live as if everything is a miracle.”

This quote has stuck with me this week as I marvel, over and over again, at the miracle of nature, birth and growth.  I’ll take the latter.
