It’s overcast and gray on the farm this morning. Fits my mood pretty good. Unfortunately, none of the chicks have hatched and the one heard peeping is silent. Maroochy, the mama hen, is still very protective of the eggs but I think I’m going to have to take them from her. If the farm store has some day or two-day old chicks, I can probably get a few for her to raise and slip them to her tonight. She’s been a faithful setter.
