I’m trying my best to get a picture of baby for you, but so far, every time I peek over the top into the nursery coop, baby dashes back under mom. Tricky little bugger. I hope to have a pic by the end of today. She seems to be showing it how to eat and drink because there is some spilled chick food spread on the floor and one of the waterers has baby poop in it (oh yay). I hope it’s a girl. Then we’ll just keep it, since it’s only one and we lost two girls over the summer. If it’s a boy… I’m not sure. Maybe I’ll finally man up and eat Luke and then we’d be back to three boys. We’ll see.
oh and p.s. the baby is an EE/Marans mix, in case you hadn’t deduced that from the green egg and the fact that I only have Marans roosters. To peer into the future, click here and here for pictures of Cori’s singular baby that is EE/Marans mix raised by an Orpington mama. As you can see, the baby (which is mostly grown in those pictures but still chillin’ with mama) is colored like a female Marans, but shaped like an EE with fluffy neck, beard, and muffs. I guess Cori’s so cool I wanted to be just like her!
