SURPRISE!!!

This is the very last thing I expected to see this morning as we gave the roosters the old heave ho a few months ago.

But she waltzed out of a wooden area with her “missing” Rhode Island Red Mother, who is currently sitting on another egg. I wonder how many other babies will join our farm! Naturally this one was has been named…Surprise! Stay dry little one!

(They we’re hiding in the nesting boxes we use in the greenhouse in the winter, we’ve put a metal roof on to protect them from the storm. Mama refused to go into our broody pen with the baby, so we decided to keep them together where they feel at home)
