I think I have IMSCD...I Must See Chickies Disorder...oh well, my legs were getting tired anyway.

Harriet: Have you seen them?

Agatha: Nope, she's hiding them good.

Penny: Me either, we're going to have to do an intervention.

To update everyone--there are now SEVEN little chickies. Two are in the house under a lightbulb. They are younger than the other 5 and were not yet up on their feet, and one was a bit cold, so I brought them in about an hour ago. I hear peeping! They are also both up toddering around the box...if I didn't know better, I'd think they'd had a nip or two of moonshine. I'll keep them in today, put them back out with momma this evening. I thought one was dead/dieing...but it's up and peeping away, we shall see. The smaller one wasn't there yesterday--it is hard to take a pic of chicks in a box with a light on them.

Now there are 8--don't know if #8 will make it or not. There are two more "pipping." We shall see. I took the blond one out to its momma around 4:00. I'm about to take the "buff" one out and put it under its momma for the night. The latest one I have on a "homemade" heating pad and under a lamp, where it will stay for the night. Gosh--this being a chicken midwife is taxing!

#7 and #8 taking a nap together. #8 is the dark one. It is moving around quite a bit when it is awake...I'm not going to get too excited, yet.

Addie--free-range eggs have less cholesterol than battery-farm eggs. I want to say 1/3 less...and it is dietary cholesterol in eggs, not serum (blood) cholesterol. And they are sooooo good! Of course, I have very happy chickens, and that might contribute to the quality of the eggs...oh, I could market them as "happy chicken eggs!"

BTW, Miss Broodie is on mat. leave, so she is exempt from the egg production line. No stew pot threats for Miss Broodie.
